Shadez The Misfit – ‘Misfit Maximus II’ [Mixtape] | Stream & download

After dropping the original Misfit Maximus mixtape last summer, rising British rapper and fashion aficionado Shadez The Misfit ends 2012 with a bang, delivering the sequel Misfit Maximus II, to keep hip hop fans both sides of the Atlantic happy.

Whilst the tape is thin on collaborations, with just the two guest appearances- from Island Records-signed singer-songwriter Josh Osho and fellow UK rapper Its Nate- the production credits suggest an intriguing and eclectic mix of sounds, with post-dubstep genius Shlohmo and Radio 1 grime/bass maestro Toddla T both providing beats alongside the likes of Dukus, Selassie and Ldn Productions.

Expect an unconventional, sonically-rich experience from Shadez, who’s had a busy year on numerous music and non-music scenes, performing at Jazz Cafe with Ski Beatz, hosting and performing at the G-Shock Sessions with Sway, Wretch 32, D Double E and more, and being nominated for high-end fashion mag Dazed & Confused‘s Spirit of Toughness Awards.

For him, the tape is an attempt to “fight back” against a wave of “fake it to make it” attitudes, an attempt to “simply represent who he is and comment on life as an up & coming artist.”
