Joe Buhdha Presents Klashnekoff
Lionheart: Tussle With The Beast (Riddim Killa)More on Joe Buhdha Presents Klashnekoff
8 / 10 The Hackney-born militant rapper codenamed Klashnekoff is a man on a mission – a mission to inspire, educate and uplift the youth from a state of madness and internecine warfare. He speaks to, and for, the streets in a language the streets instinctively understand. The vivid pictures he paints of his surroundings on Hackney’s ‘murder mile’ (‘My Life’) also prove hard to resist. Klashnekoff doesn’t mince words. ‘Question’ literally questions the entire hip-hop game, while the autobiographical ‘Rest Of Our Lives (Black Rose Part 2)’ depicts a hellish childhood.
