iTunes Review

Anyone who checks out Ill Manors on the strength of its predecessor, The Defamation of Strickland Banks, will be shocked. Gone is Plan B’s soulful croon; in its place is a brutal hip-hop record about the demonisation of the British working class. The title track explores the roots of the 2011 London riots, while Ben Drew’s fictitious scenarios document trafficked sex workers, racist foster homes and the way poverty ruins lives. It’s a hardcore listen that takes added gravitas from its orchestral soundtrack.

Signed to 679's roster, the London native proceeded to release a handful of singles across 2005 and 2006, which culminated in his debut album, Who Needs Actions When You Got Words. Its title a Meat Puppets reference, with tracks featuring clever samples of Hall & Oates, the Prodigy, and...
