Novelist album out on Friday.

Godfather 2 out 25th May. Wish Wiley wouldn't announce them so early, end up waiting for ages.

Novelist: Novelist Guy review – young grime star shows his social conscience
Quote:
The true test of whether a scene has a lifespan is to look at the new crop of talent following the greats. Grime might have had a mainstream moment, but what’s next? The answer for many fans comes in the form of 21-year-old Novelist, the south London MC who fondly bought us Lewisham McDeez as part of grime crew the Square, a jubilant homage to a local landmark. This introspective offering takes us through his frustrations with industry obstacles, black masculinity and our current political moment. At its best, with punchy tracks such as Afro Pick, he reminds us that he’s not divorced from the young people you might be reading about in the news: “Afro pick in my hair / Look but I don’t recommend you stare … I do what I do for the young youth from back in the day when I ran for the mayor,” touches on his brief stint as former deputy young mayor of Lewisham. His politically confrontational moments are the best – on Stop Killing the Mandem he furiously repeats the title, taken from a sign that went viral when he held it up at a 2016 Black Lives Matter protest in London, 16 times before we even hear him rap.
Sounds like it's shit.

Will get anyway.

Beat selection sounds OK.

His spitting lets him down a bit. Imagine what Dizzee would sound like over some of these instrumentals.

some of my favourite hip hop artists regularly discuss topics that i disagree with

not sure why that should affect quality

Content affects quality. I can't listen to Eminem rapping about guy's balls or whatever it is.

And he won't be saying anything we haven't heard a million times before from much better rappers than him.

Just comes across as forced.

Some folk are easily triggered. Music is supposed to be a fun and safe thing to enjoy.

ehh agree to disagree i suppose. i can understand it if it feels forced though, i just donít think thatís really the case here.

listened to the first half of the project, itís ok. a few nice tracks a few not so nice cuts. looking like it will go down as an average release, not really worth going out of the way to hear if you arenít a huge fan. will give it some more time though.
