EDITORS’ NOTES

Repping for British Columbia, Madchild is part of the Swollen Members crew, which has been making music since the early '90s and is one of the most popular rap groups in Canadian history. Rocking an instantly recognizable, high-pitched flow, his rhymes are a comical blend of hardcore and humor (think early Eminem, Necro, The Beatnuts), set to production that’s clean, funky, and extremely catchy throughout. The six tracks here bring up his usual topics (women, intoxication, fame, notoriety, and hip-hop) but also get more personal, touching on his time at the methadone clinic and the millions he made and lost. It’s a rock-solid EP, paving the way for his upcoming full-length, Dope Sick. Whether you're an old-school fan or never heard of the dude, this is well worth checking out. "Cyphin", "I'm OK", and "Black Acid Devil" (with Moka Only) are standouts.

About Madchild

Born in North Vancouver, British Columbia, rapper Shane Bunting is best known by his stage name, Mad Child. A founding member of the Canadian hip-hop group Swollen Members, Mad Child rose to prominence throughout the 2000s, winning four Juno Awards with the group, as well as a number of other accolades from Canadian music organizations. The MC's career took a downward turn in 2006 when Bunting fell into a pill addiction, developing a $500-a-day habit before getting clean and making his struggles public in 2009. In 2011, Mad Child found himself barred entry into the United States due to an alleged connection with the Hells Angels. That same year also saw Bunting release a solo album, M.A.D.E. (Misguided Angel Destroys Everything). Mad Child followed up the next year with the full-length Dope Sick, which was released through Battle Axe Records. ~ Gregory Heaney
