P-Money: P-Money is Power Review



Being one of the few MCs that has consistently gone to radio this year, and in the aftermath of the well-received promo A Little Back Then With Now, P-Money should be regarded as one of the best MCs of 2008. As a result, P-Money Is Power had high expectations. Unfair or not, it didn't match up to them.

The mixtape was a fair attempt with some good concepts, and the refixing of various MCs' bars was successful initially in The Grime Scene Part 1, and followed up in the wide air-play of Sounds and Gimmicks and P Is a Rascal. However, on the mixtape itself, the idea of taking different lyrics and making them into a new form was one in which the novelty quickly wore off. The attempt to reference as many people as possible tends to lead to a lack of focus on the track, resulting in little being said. There was hype on occasions, but maybe a Sounds and Gimmicks-like track could have been much more effective as an interlude since the track, running to nearly four minutes, did get boring by the end.

New subject matter is appreciated in a scene where content is narrow, but all the same Watch Your Drinks was an odd track, even if the message was valid enough. The track's beat wasn't great either, which is a sentiment that can be said for a fair few tunes on the CD.

However there were exceptions, with Big Shot's contribution providing hype and impetus that was vital to the success of a track like P Is a Rascal, and the Dot Rotten beats were generally good even if he has made better. All the same, the beat for Talking To Trainers was one of the best there, along with Wonder Boy.

The Motive, Slammer, London Boy, and What Did He Say Remix were also good tracks, and Talking To Trainers is also memorable, even if the metaphors were used too much, an offence that Sounds and Gimmicks is also guilty of. However, the style of references worked well on the intro, which related to the tracks that followed in a clever way. The CD 'intro' is often a wasted attempt at introducing the listener to the CD and the world it tries to portray, but this happily wasn't the case here.

P-Money is currently one of the first MCs a grime fan would want to hear on a radio set or at a rave, and he's certainly one of the better MCs out there. He's raw and has an impeccable flow yet, on the evidence of this CD and as an artist, he's not quite the finished article.

First of all I want to say terrific blog! I had
a quick question that I'd like to ask if you don't mind.
I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing.
I've had a difficult time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out. I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Thank you!

I leave a response each time I especially enjoy a article on a website or I have something to valuable to contribute to the discussion.
It's a result of the sincerness displayed in the post I read. And after this post "P-Money: P-Money is Power Review". I was actually excited enough to drop a thought ;) I actually do have a couple of questions for you if it's
okay. Is it simply me or do some of these remarks look
as if they are written by brain dead visitors?
:-P And, if you are posting at additional online social sites,
I would like to keep up with you. Would you list every
one of all your shared pages like your twitter feed,
Facebook page or linkedin profile?

Hey! I realize this is kind of off-topic however I needed to ask.
Does running a well-established blog such as yours take a massive amount work?

I'm completely new to blogging however I do write in my journal every day. I'd like to
start a blog so I will be able to share my personal experience and thoughts online.
Please let me know if you have any kind of suggestions or tips
for new aspiring blog owners. Thankyou!
