Bermondsey wordsmith, Young Mad B has been throwing his honest, passionate words about for the last few years via his 2010 debut album, Only One Me, and various mix tapes, such as 1Life1Goal1Dream and the first parts of the ‘Malbum’ series. But, his new album Stress Relief – the third part of the ’Malbum’ instalment – is daring enough to push him further into the prosperous whirlpool of South London rappers emerging right now.
Stress Relief features the musician’s collaboration with fellow I Records signee, Dru Blu, in ‘Find A Way’. Gigi Daai’s contribution on the emotive, piano driven ‘Big Homie’ expresses a more reflective side, while Emshey’s fluttering vocals on ‘Meditation’, paired with an electro beat, give it a glossier texture. The record lands on 18th November.
