Bobby Digital And The Pit Of Snakes

    The alias returns with the second instalment of his new project, the Bobby Digital Trilogy, which will serve as the soundtrack to an upcoming graphic novel.

    The trilogy was kicked off during the summer by Saturday Afternoon Kung Fu Theatre. Arriving on the heels of this critically acclaimed first instalment, Bobby Digital and The Pit of Snakes was produced by DJ Scratch. Under this moniker, RZA finds a freedom to musically depict his love of comic books through rich orchestral soundscapes and playful beats. As always, however, he reminds listeners of the legend status he earned in the Wu- Tang Clan, through authoritative and bold lyricism.

    A wide emotional journey, taking in a scenery of cyborgs and kangaroos in the lyrical narrative; RZA finds great freedom in the idea of character on Bobby Digital and the Pit of Snakes.


    Matt says: RZA & Bobby Digital collude again for some more comic book-themed mischief and lyrical abstraction. It's a winning formula which I'm hoping they continue to exploit.

    RZA Vs Bobby Digital

    Saturday Afternoon Kung Fu Theater

    Back in 1998, RZA had already cemented his status as Wu-Tang Clan's man behind the boards, producing the entirety of the group's respective solo albums - When it came to his own breakout moment, the producer opted to introduce the world to Bobby Digital, a cartoonish, hedonistic mad-rapping alter ego and grew so fond of the character that he released another album under the moniker before finally delivering 2003's “Birth of a Prince” as the RZA.

    Now it seems Bobby Digital is back in the picture and potentially set to square up with his host.

    The new album features the hard-hitting single, “Saturday Afternoon Kung Fu Theater”. According to a press release, DJ Scratch handles production on the album. ‘Giving Scratch the reins as a producer and me taking the reins as an MC, that's what frees me up creatively and lets me play more with lyrical gags and lyrical flows because I don't have to be focused on everything’, RZA explained in a statement.

    It's as moody and visceral as you’d expect, laced with a kind of weird, dark humour and joint-inflated pomp and swagger as the two MCs attempt to out-do each other line on line. It’s brave, outlandish and riddled with attitude. The beats are tight, freewheeling and brimming with tension.

    Arrested Development

    For The FKN Love

      Arrested Development deliver 'For the FKN Love', a true hip-hop tour de force, once again executively produced by charismatic veteran frontman Speech and British production maestro Configa. Significantly, it marks the first time that Arrested Development have worked with equally legendary collaborators, making this their biggest ever release. Big Daddy Kane, The Sugarhill Gang, Masta Ace, Freddie Foxxx, Monie Love, Kxng Crooked, G. Love, Tony Momrelle (Incognito), Dee-1 and Fatman Scoop all feature. Legends of this calibre rarely do features and yet have graced this album. Arrested Development have always been dedicated to supporting up-and-coming talent, and this trend continues with the likes of Twan Mack, Dell-P, Lish, Ke'Andra, 4ize, Twisted Royalty, Cleveland P. Jones, MRK SX and Jahah all adding weight to proceedings. When it comes to boom bap and classic rap, few artists come close to Arrested Development.

      Styles P X Havoc

      Wreckage Manner

        Two hip-hop legends that are both part of historic groups themselves, are forming a new group - Havoc, from the Queensbridge bred Mobb Deep (rest in power Prodigy) and Styles P of The Lox, straight out of Yonkers, are forming Wreckage Manner. Both Havoc and Styles P have collaborated with a number of artists in recent years. Havoc released joint albums with Alchemist, Flee Lord and Dark Lo. His last solo album was in 2014, the same year as the last Mobb Deep album. Styles has teamed up to release projects with Talib Kweli, Berner and Dave East in recent years. In addition to new music from The Lox, Styles P has released at least one new album every year since 2018.

        On the album, Styles P raps over Havoc's gritty, piano-laced production. Havoc also gets busy on the mic and lets his opponents know that for all his success, he's still the same kid from 41st Side.
