Out 13th June 2012 on Man Bites Dog Records, Copywrite and his album âGod Save The King (Proper English Version)â will go down well with all the hard-core hip-hop lovers.

Starting off the album with âYear of the Gunâ featuring Killah Priest, Inspectah Deck & Bigz Flygerian produced by Bronze Nazareth is a deep lyrically written track with aggressive verbal delivery over energetic beats from Bronze Nazareth.

Second track, âCrooked Coppersâ features Crooked I and Iron Braydz produced by Surock, itâs a good head nodder that you could imagine played on radio and appreciated on a global basis. âOverdoseâ features one of my personal favourite rappers Royce da 59 and Genesis Elijah produced by Curtiss King, its got a slamming beat that would get any club jumping.

Finally, some UK hip-hop added to Copywriteâs âGod Save The King" featuring one of the best yet hardly known to the mainstream UK/London based rapper Akala âStarter Hatsâ, that also features Sonny Seeza (Onyx) produced by Kount Fif.

âA Talk With Jesusâ, is a haunting hip-hop track with a creepy keyboard in the background and a sampled vocal singing âJust a little talk with Jesusâ, itâs a slightly difficult album to listen to if you donât completely come from a background of straight up hip-hop because itâs a heavily focused hip-hop album you wonât be expecting any Ashanti or Mary J Blige collaborations on this album.
