what with all the fuss over the kano and roll deep full-lengths, people seem to have completely overlooked the forthcoming lethal b album. cant say im looking forward to it that much, as im not a huge fan of the way lethal is rapping these days, i find it a bit too jarring, much preferred his more sinuous style he used during the more fire crew days. am curious to see if he makes a whole album out of no and pow-type songs though. anyone heard it yet?

you haven't exactly put forward a compelling case for not "overlooking" this album that no one has heard yet...

I am way more excited about this record (and this is the first I've heard it named) than the Kano album (or the Roll Deep album--which I pretty much had resigned myself to disappointment.) Only the possibility of a Newham Generals album elicits more glee on my part. But yeah "overlooked" is the wrong word (I mean unless there is a tracklist and art floating around that I don't know about.)

I think it could be pretty fun, as long as they limit the appearances by the rest of Fire Camp (Lethal is the only mc in Fire Camp I even vaguely rate). I think the next single 'Uh-Oh' is pretty cool (it sounds quite a bit like 'Hype Hype' but then Sticky has been recycling his sound for years).

i think fumin is big. he's the only one from the firecamp/boundry crew that really sticks out to me besides lethal...i'm very interested to hear the lethal b album...

On the bio tab of Lethal's site (http://www.lethalbizzle.co.uk/site.html) is what basically amounts to a tracklist. Except for "No" and "Uh oh" it all looks like new stuff. Exciting!

Absolutely terrible lyrics if I understand them correctly. It doesn't sound like they are delivered with irony, like in Pharaohe Monch 'Simon Says'. I won't buy this shit for the same reason I won't buy crunk, snoop dogg etc. Fuck those ignorant, misogynic fools glamourizing drugsdealing and violence. Buy that shit and you subsidize what functions as a hate spreading campaign.

my fave on the LP is the vocal of Plasticman's 'funeral vibez,' a haunting minimal track - one of plastic's most moving beats. lethal uses it to talk about being dropped.

Yeah, Fumin's not bad, although I've got to say that in my opinion his voice kind of grates after more than a couple of tracks.

yeah i feel u on that....i like him when he does a verse on tracks with other cats...since his voice is unique it's a kool change up against other mc's...some of his solo tracks are kool, but too much and his tone gets tiring...

fumin's great - got a bit of control over his flow and knows how to pitch his voice to a track

i think fumin is shit! still got to check this lethal album out though. i rate ozzie b and neeko much higher than fumin.

i like this album. lethal is a bit repetitive and the album feels quite short, but its got a lot of grime bangers on there, even if ive heard most of them already. this is probably the most 'grime' of all the recent grime-artist albums. even then though, its not as 'garage' as more fire crew's album was - which makes me wonder if grime artists need to like grime just that little bit more.

I hope people don't overlook some of the other albums out since alot of the big ones are all coming out at the same time. It even makes it harder for me to decide which CD i want to drop $20-30 import bux on first. So in the end i said to myself "get Lord of the Decks 3" dvd and get music, videos and interviews for a great price.
Back to Lethal B...album does look pretty interesting but i think if he had released it right at the hieght of "FWD Riddim" it might have gained alot more buzz than it has now...not saying it doesnt have a buzz but it seem like more writers and people on the net are excited more about the Roll Deep and Kano album.

Lord of the Decks 3 is not that great, only because most of the tunes are not new. So it is like a compilation of the last 8 months. The lethal b album is ok - too many songs where he is trying to sing over the riddim, just sounds weird. The beat on 'hitman' is pretty mental though.

The album that I like the most at the moment is 'Essential Heating' by Essentials - there are some really heavy
tunes on there.

Essentials Heating Vol 2 is really really great (easily the best 'single' artist grime album to come out this year) and it comes for free with the very good Street Anthems 2. I wholeheartedly recommend buying it over Lord of the Decks 3 which is decent enough, but kind of unexciting.
