Free Download (Rewd Adams – Rewd Awakening) - http://rewdadams.bandcamp.com/

I’ve never been a fan of name changes throughout an artists career, simply due to the fact it’s difficult to re brand something that’s been built from scratch. So Rewd Adams (formally Skandal) has done a great job in a situation which could have potentially been devastating. Rewd Adams has signaled his intention to have 2011 his biggest year ever, with the release of his latest album “Rewd Awakening” at the close of 2011.

Rewd Awakening is a thirteen track album which features production from the likes of Sivey, M-Phazes, Jon Phonics and Beat Butcha amongst others. Rewd Adams links up with Black The Ripper on two tracks, and the last track is the popular “Kill Em With The Flow Remix” which also shows Klashnekoff and P Money sharing their lyrical ability. Rewd Adams determines not be out shined by the artists who have a lot more experience in the rap world, and it’s fair to say he holds his own.
In regards to the music I think Rewd Awakening is a very direct, and angry album which is heard throughout various tracks and lyrics quoted by Rewd Adams. The likes of “Hurt” and “Questions” are solo tracks which unfortunately will be under appreciated due to the big named features from other tracks. Rewd Adams previously released the track “Everyday” with Black The Ripper which is one of my personal favourites on Rewd Awakening, and credit to Jon Phonics who’s done an excellent job behind the boards.
Trying to find a criticism from an artist I admire and genuinely enjoy is difficult, however the content in a couple of tracks is somewhat repetitive. Rewd Adams is a young artist with a lot to speak about, and listening over to the album several times resulted in me picking up similar references, and just wishing there was more subject matter. Contradicting myself, the album is themed and structured in the way a good album should be, so whether this was intentional from Rewd Adams remains to be seen.
I always urge Hip-Hop Kings readers to support the U.K artists who have independently spent countless hours and maximum effort into creating a product from nothing. Please support Rewd Adams with his latest album “Rewd Awakening” which is certainly worth adding to your U.K Hip-Hop collection. I predict a bright 2011 for Rewd Adams, and “Rewd Awakening” in my opinion is just the beginning.

Fans of Skandal will be fully aware that he’s recently released a new record titled Hunger Pains, and with rave reviews across the country it’s put Skandal into the “one-of-the-most-talked-about-rappers” category. I’m so happy to be sharing the brand new video for the track Terrovision which was my personal favourite from the Hunger Pains record. Well produced and directed – I’m sure this will appeal to an International fan base as well. You can watch Skandal – Terrovision on the player below.

Skandal – Hunger Pains [Exclusive]

• March 17, 2010 • Comments (3)
Tipped as “top five artists to watch in 2010″ by BBC 1Xtra I can’t say I disagree. Skandal is a U.K Hip-Hop artist who has firmly stamped his name within the U.K Hip-Hop world, and his new album “Hunger Pains” with DJ MK is another great release to bless rap fans’ ears this year. I’m not going to digress from the music with metaphors and saturated journalism, I’m going to reveal why Hunger Pains is essential listening material, and how DJ MK and Skandal have achieved this together.
The ingredients for a great album are all present, and this hasn’t come by chance. Firstly seventeen tracks is a great number, it’s enough to satisfy fans for months of hard work from Skandal, but it’s not too long to lose a listeners attention. DJ MK not only brings years of experience to the project, additionally his DJ abilities are second to none. Hunger Pains also features some of the most in-demand names in the circuit including Ramson Badbonez and Beat Butcha who both provide remarkable contributions to the album. So far it looks great.
With the foundations laid for Hunger Pains it’s time for Skandal to deliver. Not only does Skandal display the hunger required (pardon the pun), it arrives on a silver platter and in enormous proportions. The likes of “Home Economics” which is a Beat Butcha-produced track is raw U.K Hip-Hop at it’s finest. Immediately afterwards Skandal hits fans with “Family Tree” which is a solo track which is ideal for a street anthem. Skandal’s natural rhyming pattern shines through in both tracks, and shapes the rest of the album perfectly.
No U.K Hip-Hop album is complete without a display of immense lyricism. The pulse-raising “Terrovision” contains political substance, and the imagery-turned-reality style is evidently a strong point of Skandal’s persona. Terrovision has all the qualities for the underground radio scene, and my only criticism would be the length. Critiques and fans want to hear more! It seems that DJ MK and Skandal anticipated the request, so “Exorcising Demons” is a quick-fire effort which is a lot cleverer than a lot of people think.
Not only should Skandal and DK MK profit financially from Hunger Pains, but the publicity surrounding the release has been excellent. The availability to download the album digitally from e-stores will boost sales, and the artwork and packaging is somewhat unique too. A combination of U.K Hip-Hop and Grime from two established figureheads in the music world is exactly what we wanted. I’m confident the support from fans will be great, and a celebration will be on the cards for both DJ MK and Skandal.
