Paul White - Rapping with Paul White

Flashes of genius
Paul White - Rapping with Paul White
British producer Paul White, renowned for bringing a more experimental edge to the UK hip-hop and beats scene has enlisted an impressive line-up of US and British rappers (and Nancy Elizabeth!?) to contribute to this electric and unconventional album. White clearly has a love of beats, sounds, and pop (he’s a big Michael Jackson fan), and the eighteen tracks here have a playful and uplifting edge that go some way to justify the “21st Century DJ Shadow” label. Sadly there are too many beats and samples that it can be hard to keep up with the ferocious pace, despite the obvious talent and flashes of genius on this record.
