Though some may be suprised, strong, introspective emcee Amiri has released a total of four albums since 2010 (two solo endeavours, and two as part of his duo with producer Spectac). I have to admit that Amiri is a new name to me, but he's signing on impressive underground label HiPNOTT and especially the lead single "Broke" really made me to take notice Amiri's HiPNOTT debut is called "This is Part Time" and creates a close-to-perfect soundbed for the emcee's clever wordplay. If you like me and love jazz and smooth '70's classics, this is one amazing album that needs to be given a chance by my readers. The full-length LP and is suprisingly entirely produced by the man himself; so not only is he a really talented spitter, but the same goes for his skills behind the boardsl.
Released yesterday, HiPNOTT and Amiri has put up the entire album for free streaming via their Bandcamp page where you can also show your support for the the digital album by donating an amount of your choosig. It is also available on CD copies via UGHH right now, hopefully we will se a vinyll release as this is bonkers!
