An Englishman in Akron, Ohio

Raps set to ‘mainey but vulnerable’, Kenny G saxophone set to ‘emotionally stunted’, yup, it can only be my favourite track from that Young Bossi & Joe Blow album which seems to have slipped through the cracks of the Rap-internet now Thomas is no longer writing about new music:

Young Bossi & Joe Blow ft. Ampichino - Crazy World
(From FishscaleBlow album; 2013)

Always the Herr Flick to Young Bossi's Von Smallhausen, Ampichino steals the song with his guest verse which includes to a reference to Ken Shamrock, a boast about how bullets from his fo' will turn your 'fro to a flat-top, and the sort of unfurling storytelling about the consequences of crime that's reminiscent of classic Ice-T. Bravo, old bean.

Greatest Herr Flick and Von Smallhausen moment in Allo Allo?

The scene where they're disguised as monks in the bell tower and Herr Flick ends up getting pulled up into the air by the bell >>>>>

The lack of Herr Flick + Von Smallhausen videos on YouTube is problematic.

So, Robbie tells me this is actually a sample from Sade's "Jezebel".

I sort of missed out on this song. Finding the gems in a double album is never easy.
Ampichino's verse is so sick, he is easily my favorite rapper out right now.
The song that stood out to me most from Fish Scale Blow was "Bounce Back."
