Brand new to the hip hop universe this week is an album from one of world's most interesting MCs. Speech Urchin and Underground double H stalwart - Invokal is announcing the hanging up of his wordsmith crown, and his meta-morphosis into multi-media artist and creator of both the Screwed and Tales Of A Timelord universes - Invokal Ink. With a pool of artists at his fingertips, Invokal has conglomerated something entirely unique and unlike anything the scene currently has to offer. His own patented 'flip the script hop', ladies and gents, hip hop heads alike, let's listen ... as the flow cries.
The lyricist and singer has released possibly his most concise work yet. A natural and beautifully artistic conclusion to the Invokal legacy. The cover is an awesome photgraph taken in Dungeness by the artist iwearoddsocks aka Lucy Jones. To celebrate it's release, Invokal's entire catalogue has been made free to download for the very first time. You can now get all six albums, three EPs and an array of singles absolutely free.
Together with producers Da.B, Ot4ku, SystemATA, the late great Bantamflex, Vice Beats and with lyricism from MCs Oracy and Asbest The Moor King, as well as a feature vocal from the amazing Hattie Snooks, Invokal has managed to form a cognitive and brutally honest piece of work with both depth and passion embedded clearly and thickly through every track. A brave and poignantly timed release of quality music that is proud to represent the best of the UK. Go get stuck in.
