Biography

There are those that rap, and those that rap well; then there are those that transcend the confines of hip hop culture to become credible, commercial, mainstream pop acts – Kanye, Jay-Z, Eminem, for instance. But it’s unfair to compare Professor Green to any of the aforementioned; utterly British, uniquely inimitable, if anything; his closest equivalent is Lily ...

Product Description

CD Description

UK rap sensation Professor Green's second album is bookended with the unmistakeably tongue-in-cheek musings of title track ‘At Your Inconvenience’ and closing track ‘Into The Ground’, the bulk of the album pushes the boundaries and expectations of Professor Green’s sound. The soulfully dark and twisted, ‘Astronaut’ and the future anthem ‘Avalon’ which matches his vitriolic raps with a killer hook courtesy of Sierra Kusterbuck, vocalist with Florida alt-rock trio VersaEmerge. ‘Spinning Out’ is even more audacious, as Green teams up with one of his favourite musicians Fink to reimagine their own interpretation of the classic Pixies track ‘Where Is My Mind?’.

BBC Review

You have to feel sorry for British hip hop. For 20 years it was the runt of pop’s litter, ignored by the mainstream and considered too inauthentic by fans of American rap. Then Dizzee Rascal has a number one and the singles chart and British teen culture becomes entirely dominated by pop-friendly London MCs… at the exact point when everybody stops actually buying music.

This perhaps explains records like this second album from Hackney’s Stephen Manderson aka Professor Green. After winning an avalanche of freestyle rap battles and surviving a false start with Mike Skinner’s ill-fated The Beats label, 27-year-old Green struck pop-rap gold in 2010 with his Alive Till I’m Dead album and the Lily Allen-bolstered Just Be Good to Green single. There have also been tragedies and traumas – the suicide of his father, a friend’s death by heroin, a 2010 attack with a bottle at Cargo in Shoreditch that saw his assailant sentenced to jail time.

So, when he asks rhetorically, on the opening title-track of the follow-up: "Why would I make dance music / When I can’t dance to it?" before declaring, "I’m the antidote to that s***", and you’re nodding along approvingly to the low-slung, squelchy G-funk adorned with fuzz guitar and rude bursts of synth, you want to take the man at his word. Then you notice the presence of a bland drum‘n’bass track (Trouble), a dodgy trance-meets-breakbeat tune (Remedy) and the now-obligatory Dubstep One (How Many Moons). And you are, frankly, bemused and, increasingly, very, very bored.

Of course, one person’s ‘eclecticism’ is inevitably another person’s ‘throwing any currently marketable material at the wall to see if it sticks’. At Your Inconvenience is dominated not by club bangers but incredibly maudlin rap ballads full of banal piano lines, anonymously cutesy-pie female vocalists and choruses that scream, "Please let me on The X Factor… I promise I won’t swear!" The award for most soul-sucking moment becomes an arm-wrestle between Spinning Out, which thinks it ‘samples’ Where Is My Mind? by Pixies but actually covers it in cruise-ship style and then chucks a pointless rap at it, and the closing Into the Ground, which attempts to reclaim Green’s hip hop cred by unleashing a barrage of witless misogynist abuse. Green apparently sees no hypocrisy in including this track after the dire schmaltz that is Astronaut, a song about a rape victim who becomes a junkie and commits suicide.

Add the inevitable ‘it’s awful being famous’ whinge-rants towards the album’s end and the inconvenient truth is apparent: this is a depressingly compromised album from a rapper who, around the time of his 2006 ‘mixtape’ set Lecture 1, looked set to live up to his billing as the UK’s answer to Eminem. Instead, Professor Green seems to have settled for being the musical version of Lee Nelson’s Well Good Show. Without the laughs or the fat bloke. --Garry Mulholland

I liked a lot of pro's previous songs but had to agree he seemed a bit like a whiny Eminem wannabe, however after hearing his new songs i decided to give the album a try and was pleasantly surprised. The gritty rap is still there but its matured and evolved into more melodic hip-hop. The artists featured on the album are relatively unknown, but the 2 songs with Emeli Sande really do stand out.

I mainly bought this to get "Remedy". The CD has been out for quite a while and I'd heard the big hit out of it ("Read all about it") but that didn't make a huge impression; sounded like just another chart hit. But the first time I saw "Remedy", it was a revelation. An amazing song - not a day goes by that I won't listen to it at least once. Saw the video clip on VIVA by chance at the beginning of May 2012 and Ruth Anne's vocals got stuck in my mind. This is the type of song that catches you completely unawares, has a killer verse that gets stuck in your brain and you find your brain singing it back to you all day: "I sell it by the bottle, oh I'll make it last all night".

Truth be said, I was also quite curious. Being predominately a rock music fan, I'm anything but versed in rap and grime - I am rather a musical ignoramus in that respect. So, I reckoned this CD would be a good way to familiarize myself to said music idiom. At the price of a fiver (even less if you're downloading) it's a steal and it's worth every penny. Professor Green is quite an adept lyricist- proof that you don't have to be a public school boy to handle language as your special tool and bend it any way you want. There seem to have been comparisons with Eminem. They're both white and blond, other than that I am not sure they are so similar. Maybe comparisons are based on the first track from this (bearing the same name as the CD), which sounds somewhat Eminemy. It is quite a fun track. Professor Green is not your run-of-the-mill rapper for sure. He comes through as far too emotional and sensitive, has a rich narrative and a point to make in most of his songs and, unlike many other rappers, he is neither nonsensical nor too full of himself.

Bought this album because i had heard one of the tracks on the radio, Remedy. I loved the beat to this, the singing and rapping combination, just a steering wheel tapping, feel young tune!!
If that makes any sense. If you have small children and in a rare moment they are not in the car with you, the mind numbing replay of Charlie and Lola or Wheels on the bus tunes on a daily basis... You will understand how it feels to listen to some grown up music that is fun!!

Buy this, you wont regret it and its at a great price too!!

The only reason it didnt get 5 stars is that i didnt love every single track, the majority though.

So this is the difficult second album released by Hackney born rapper Stephen Paul Manderson AKA Professor Green. So often the second album never lives up to the success or hype of a artists previous album but personally I feel that this album has achieved this criteria and has in fact improved upon his first album `Alive Till I'm Dead'. What makes this album work is a lot down to his collaborators, many of which I had never heard of such as Sierra Kusterbeck or Ruth Anne Cunningham, their vocals are desperately needed to break up Green's quick, witty but often dragged out lyrics. I'm not entirely sure what age group this album is suppose to appeal to, it has a good mixture of upbeat and slower tracks but many of the tracks contain explicit lyrics which may offend some listeners. Saying that who in this genre doesn't use explicit lyrics these days.

There are songs on this album which do disappoint me such as the title track `At Your Convenience' and `Doll' but there are so many more songs which make this album one of the best I've heard this year. I especially like `D.P.M.O', `Remedy' and `Avalon'. It is very easy to compare Mr. Green with Eminem but I glad that although you can tell that Eminem is a big influence on Green, its good to see that he has begun to take his own direction and as long as he continues in that direction he will enjoy much needed recognition and album success. Keep up the good work.

I really enjoyed this album. All the tunes are really catchy and you want to sing along or do some silly dance.
I liked how one of the tracks reminded me of the 90's and it can suit all age groups not just under 30's.
He's not like Eminem cos he has a bit of street rat accent that Eminem doesn't. I mean that in a good way cos Professor Green is totally brilliant. Its well worth a fiver of anyones money.
