EMCEE / PRODUCER / LABEL FOUNDER
To Whom It May Concern at the Trading Standards Commission:
I am writing to you on behalf of my client SONNYJIM, to inform you of his recent discontent at the bastardized image of hip-hop music portrayed and traded by popular culture. Gun toting, money fetishizing and the constant oppression of the proverbial "ho" reign supreme as rap's status quo, and real underground hip-hop is seen as "whatever".
My client, SONNYJIM, is entirely repulsed that such a widely appreciated and intelligently honed form of "street-music" is constantly overlooked by the media in favour of the flavour of the month.
In order to adequately resolve this situation, I sincerely recommend the endeavours of my client SONNYJIM over those who have done our ears disservice. He is not only a ferocious, battle bred emcee, but a versatile rhyme smith capable of releasing consistently dope product.
Hailing from Birmingham, this Jump Off and End Of The Weak veteran has demonstrated his relentless talent throughout the country and captivated crowds alongside THE STREETS and FOREIGN BEGGARS to name a few. SONNYJIM'S new mix-CD is entirely comprised of original material, and features a plethora of the country's most talented emcees including Mercury Music Prize Nominee and MOBO Award Winning SOWETO KINCH, FOREIGN BEGGARS, JEHST, STIG OF THE DUMP and KASHMERE. It is a raucous, fiery long player, with unrelenting skill and technique on show, over slick production.
With such impeccably presented material in the form of the ever-discerning Trading Standards Mixtape, I can only hope the casual reduction of hip-hop music to its clichés becomes a thing of the past. You can pick up several SONNYJIM releases at the usual outlets nationwide or directly from www.eatgoodrecords.com or just hit the paypal logo's below.
