First up, we have what will more than likely be one of the best mixtapes of 2010 by one quarter of UK rap supergroup Orphans Of Cush, Cyrus Malachi.
The mixtape is presented by No Cure Records and Triple Darkness, who have took over the UK rap scene recently through producers Chemo and Endemic amongst others flooding the market with truly great, spectacularly hard beats and no-nonsense rhymes.
The mixtape is Cyrus featuring partner-in-crime Melanin 9, and mixed by DMC World Champs DJ Switch & DJ Furious P, and is a prelude to his debut solo album “Ancient Future” (which is to be released in the autumn of this year) and brings harrowing street tales from his life and experiences growing up in Hackney.
Enjoy, and support. If you like the mixtape, please buy a hard copy from the sites and links below and help a great emcee get his shine.
