Professional Rapper - Lil Dicky

I discovered this album when travelling to sixth form with friends in the car, we used to try to learn all of the lyrics to Lil Dicky’s ‘White Crime’, however it’s the almost joke which is Professional Rapper, in a good way of course.

 

The way Dicky blends humour with rap is incredible, the way the song is structured is like a conversation between Lil Dicky and Snoop Dogg. It’s a fantastic opener to a solid album.

Hey Jarrod, What's That Song Again? - Jarrod Alonge

This song isn’t for everyone, it’s a parody of a sub-genre of metal and how the industry is notorious for stealing music, lyrics and guitar riffs, all in the style of a hardcore metal song.

If you’re looking for something different, this is certainly it.

The Answer - VANT

The slow, dramatic buildup. A blend of rhythm guitar and drums to open a solid all rounder song. I discovered this group when they opened for You me at six in Cambridge, I preferred the opening act to the headliner. I went on to see them in Camden before their split up last November.

 

Besides all of the protesting in their music, The Answer stands out to me as some of their best work as a group.
