SALFORD STAR CHRISTMAS
 

Star date: 14th December 2009 

BEST SALFORD PRESENTS THIS CHRISTMAS

No 5:  The Unexpectable: The Great White Hope (Coolshade Records)

Yep, it's the best Salford album of the year – spittin' thrillin' skillin' Salford rap and hip hop, and way more, at its very, very top. Even Radio 1 made it Record of the Week in the autumn when it was first unleashed. If you're buying any music this Christmas, or ever, don't leave this class collection behind…

Walkin' with an attitude
Through this concrete city
With a fightin' mentality
To reign in this city
Feel the pain in this city…

The Unexpectable: The Great White Hope (Coolshade Records)

The long awaited album from Salford's top hip hop god, The Unexpectable, has finally arrived – and it won't just blow you away, it will take you, via Duchy, the bottom shops and Swinetown, out of this hemisphere to sonic places where Manc MCs get `put to rest'.

But The Unexpectable isn't named that for nowt – yes he can rap on the Richter scale to rip your chest out. But his hard core raw urban poetry is also set to the backing of old skool, nu skool, high school, ice cool tracks that veer from daisy age soul to funk tinged electro. With no re-hashed samples.

The Great White Hope has taken three years in the making and is 14 tracks of unashamed class…from MC anthem, Salford Style, to the silky Saturday-night-in-the-back-of-the-Mini-Cooper vibes of Sussed. The Unexpectable, aka Adam Townsend, is real and he knows it…`I'm lyrically gifted that's why I don't play with crime'. Find this album and find proper Salford skill at its best.
