Dan Le Sac vs Scroobius Pip Angles album, released on Sunday Best last year, showed that British hip hop could be innovative, fluid, funny, full of influences and occasionally dark. Unfortunately the album was much under rated and overlooked in the UK. Now Sunday Best are re-releasing the stand out single Thou Shalt Always Kill on 19th January, with a new version featuring Posdnuos (Kelvin Mercer) from De La Soul. Once again Pip delivers a comical and clever set of new spoken word commandments matched against Le Sac’s jelly like Atari bleeping laptop beats. Some classic new lines are thrown in right at the start. “Though shall not type LOL unless you are really laughing out loud,” we are lectured. Or try “Thou shall not think having a blog makes you a journalist.”
We never did Mr Pip. We never did.
