To celebrate 10 years of Butterz we salute two of our favourite MCs, and long term collaborators Newham Generals, Footsie & D Double E.
We have unearthed two unreleased dubs, the infamous 'Frontline' and a lesser known banger 'Humpty Dumpty'. War Wid and Prangman are two early Grime classics that have been out of press for at least 15 years.
They've all been remastered by Joker so are sounding better than ever.
There are bonus tracks included which serve as a complimentary piece to this record you will enjoy too!
Manga is the only one out here making pure, forward-thinking Grime like it used to be. No cash-in nostalgia, no catering to radio plays; just pure lyricism and cream-of-the-crop production. Remember when Grime had humour and humanity? When MC's had personality and originality that was uniquely British? Before autotune, German whips and 'manaman sells crack and manaman will shank ur mum' became the norm? This is like that. Golden.
Big up Manga - keep doing your thing. You deserve to be massive
