If you haven’t heard Harry Shotta dropping lyrical illness, prepare to have your dome blown as the UK-based MC drops mad game on “Animal,” his latest killer. While it’s been making waves for having broken Eminem’s previous World Record on “Rap God” for the most words on a track, what makes this truly worth checking is the narrative flow Shotta is able to spin over the course of his 1,771-word blast.
Name-checking everyone from Andy C to Dillinja, J Dilla and Raekwon, Shotta cuts a path right through the heart of hip-hop, grime, drum & bass, and jungle with his wicked double-time flow that has to be heard to be fully appreciated.
Taken from his forthcoming live show album The Harry Shotta Show, produced in collaboration with DJ Phantasy and Dextone, this is one essential tuns. Out now on Showtime Music.
