PREVIOUS | M9 ft Triple Darkness – Heartless Island
Triple Darkness member and UK lyricist M9 (aka Melanin 9) has released the new video for his single “Colors”. M9 is credited for directing and editing the video himself, and shouts to Loopholes for the production and Milemount & Dialect for filming the video. M9 has announced he’ll be releasing his new E.P “High Fidelity” (not to be confused with his 2007 mixtape with the same name) on 31st May, and we have the official track listing below. Guest production comes from Beat Butcha, Chemo and Loopholes, with a feature from Skriblah and a B-side of instrumentals. You can view the full track listing for M9 – High Fidelity below, and you can also watch the brand new video from M9 – Colors on the Youtube player here.

Following a strong album release and a huge boost to his international profile, Triple Darkness member M9 (aka Melanin 9) has teamed up with other members for the crew for the video to his single “Heartless Island”. The single is easily recognisable as being featured on M9’s latest album “Magna Carta” which was one of my favourite U.K Hip-Hop albums of recent years, and can also be downloaded from the download link above. Look out for M9 and Triple Darkness performing at this years Boom Bap Festival, along with the release of Cyrus Malachi’s “Black Athema” album. You can watch M9 ft Triple Darkness – Heartless Island on the YouTube player below.
The adjective “beautiful” is rarely connected with anything musical, never mind speaking specifically within the Hip-Hop world, so when it was the word of choice to summarise M9’s upcoming album “Magna Carta” I surprised myself. Don’t confuse the aforementioned statement with doubt, there’s no question that Magna Carta (Great Charter in Latin) is without a doubt one of the most soulful, heartfelt and honest pieces of music I’ve heard in a long time. With this comes great risk, however M9 has clearly taken a brave, yet truthful approach to Magna Carta and I’m pleased to say it couldn’t have turned out any better.
