Both with a shared passion for art, film, manga/anime and hip hop they blended it all together to create THE ARTFORM. Mr Brown’s production showcase his classic sense of groove and masterful use of samples producing a solid mixture of unique beats. Confucius’ intelligent lyrics and superb flow combine perfectly with the beats to make a riveting and dynamic collection of songs. Thematically built on their shared interests the album examines the nature of art and the role of the artist in a subtle and conscious manner, stimulating the brain as well as the ears. UK hip hop legend JEHST was drafted in for the only feature on the project, adding his unmistakable lyricism to the track ‘The Art-Form pt.2’ and helping out with some post/executive production work to complete the project.
With 7 tracks in total THE ARTFORM is necessary listening for anyone who likes well-produced, intelligently-written, thought-provoking modern hip-hop.
