Lets hope that with Kik Off, Blak Twang can reverse some of the bad luck that has dogged him. The self-styled Arthur Daley of hip-hop has not only had a debut album permanently shelved due to sample clearance problems, but has never found the crossover success of his contemporaries, most notably Roots Manuva, who appeared on his 1995 single "Queens Head".
Its not always been bad news, he got a MOBO in 1996, but the adversity seems to have given him some of Daleys ducking and diving attitude apparent from the, err, kick-off of Kik Off. The title track and single comes as much from the market of his home area of Deptford, South London, as it does from more classic hip-hop--"...blowing the whistle on dodgy officials, come with your Big Issues and get done like Phil Mitchell".
On the sublime "So Rotton", he shows a real sensibility for dancehall beats, with a slightly more populist appeal than even Roots Manuva himself, and goes conceptual on "Dirty Stopout", with Lisa IAnson making an appearance as a third-person scene setter in a similar vein to Eminems "Guilty Conscience". The whole album isnt a major leap forward, but it does add to the growing list of UK hip-hop albums that are more than able to stand up to similarly budgeted US efforts.--Chris Blenkarn

Coming on a different but no less idiosyncratic tip to Roots Manuva, he remains the other truly important voice in UK hip hop- don't sleep on this!
Well Done Twang!
You better watch them girls that a game you out // they get the digits to your card try and gain it out (from the chorus of trixsta)
The album Features Rodney P (also on the mark b and blade album) the rottonus crew and Estelle who features on the single trixsta others such as mystro on the track half 'n' half and jahmali on the track so rooten will help to make the album an underground hit even if it doesn't become an above ground hit. Which is very unlikely.
