UK rap supergroup The Menagerie (Dr Syntax, Prof Elemental & Tom Caruana) return with their new forthcoming album, ODD BEAST, via Tea Sea Records
MC’s Professor Elemental and Dr Syntax complement Tom Caruana’s signature brand of quirky, sample-laden Hip Hop with comedic, tongue-in-cheek lyrics touching on subjects such as relationship pressures ‘She’s Gone’, a shared disdain for team sports ‘It’s Only A Game’ and interactions with professional peers ‘Rappers Don’t Want To Be Our Friends’.
Guests include Al The Native (aka Jordan Stephens of Rizzle Kicks) and Sabira Jade (DJ Vadim), while DJ Nick Maxwell provides the always-on-point turntable skills.
The Menagerie released their debut, ‘Wild Kingdom‘, in 2005 and gained a cult following in their adopted hometown of Brighton and beyond, with International DJ Magazine calling the group,
“A seriously tight unit, as anyone who has witnessed their live shows will testify”.
Check out a preview of the album below with the tracks ‘Walking With Canes’ & ‘This Much I Know’ (feat. Al The Native).
