Loudmouth Melvin – EP #1 | Review + Download

Whilst 2010 has so far been a successful for artists breaking into the charts, the UK Hip Hop scene has also provided some standout moments. From acclaimed albums to live events, Hip Hop hasn’t been left in the shade by those artists who choose to produce a more accessible format. So it makes for great news to hear that Loudmouth Melvin, the lauded wordsmith, plans to drop four EPs with the first of the series hitting the web this week: EP #1.

E.P 1 consists of more dope lyrical displays from another East London associate. The opener “The Outspoken” is packed with samples of his trademark tongue-in-cheek punchlines (the Russell Brand reference being one of the highlights).

Loudmouth’s sharp displays turns attention to the “artists” in the scene taking pops at others on “Really?” (featuring Dream McLean) and gets into a war with the ex on the K-Nite 13 produced “Just Leave”.

The mega link up “Fill The Air”with Mentalist, Mystro and Skandal rounds off the five track EP and makes for a worthy download – both for Hip Hop connoisseurs and those who have had little experience delving into the thriving scene.
