I absolutely love when an artist can accurately articulate how I usually feel about rap music today. To date, there are times I purposely underplay my love and passion hip-hop or rap music, just because I’m fully aware of the perception the general public has on rap music. Their perception isn’t inaccurate and  frankly there are days I’m outright embarrassed at the three ring circus  the music industry (particularly rap and “hip-hop”) have become.

It’s been approximately 2 years since we last featured anything from Backyard Bully, but Raise The Stakes is certainly an awesome record to reestablish themselves with. Consistency is key with this latest record. Hailing from the UK, Backyard Bully have consistently stuffed their records with eye-opening truths about  these crazy times we live in.
