The Boy is MONSTROUS!!,
This review is from: Blackmarket Boy (Audio CD)
After hearing The Groundbreaker a year ago, i was made up Fallacy was releasing a full length LP. When Big 'n Bashy popped up on the TV a month or so ago i made the decision to buy Blackmarket Boy. Was I impressed? Sometimes i wasn't - songs like Ooh and John Wayne Swagger got to me due to their wannabe US type formula. However there are plenty of Bangers on there as well. As well as the singles, tunes like the title track and Stay Blessed are straight Hip Hop. My personal favourite is Rap Folly featuring Rodney P . This grows on you after a couple of listens with its big beats and bass. As a whole album it doesnt compare to stuff like Run Come Save Me by Roots Manuva, but thats allowed. It's only his first longplayer and I look forward to hearing what he comes up with in the future. Overall its another great step for the Hip Hop scene in the UK anyhow.
