UK-based rapper Chillman is certainly worthy of his name. On this smooth debut he lays pensive bars over a selection of beautifully jazzy sample-based beats produced by veteran emcee. Producer Verb T (who more recently has been known for his work as one quarter of The Four Owls).

There are no hooks or gimmicks. The rapper delivers an all-bars-performance delving into his soul and drawing on his life journey from his birthplace in East African Eritrea to adulthood. Check out some tasters from the album on the artist’s Bandcamp.
