Initially due for release at the end of August, stock restrictions and various other limitations meant that we had to wait a few extra days to hear Crazy Titch’s new material. Crazy Times Vol. 2 — recorded in prison — is a 23 track mixtape which is now available to buy from all good retailers (well…UK Record Shop). In it Titch retreads the ever more obscure path of grime and also strays into hip-hop territory, spitting venom and heartfelt emotion almost in equal part.
Admittedly I’ve not had a chance to really get to know it yet, but judging by a couple of hours listening today, it [almost] lives up to the hype. As lyrically powerful as he ever was, perhaps even more so now that his claims are backed by reality, Titch has undoubtedly assembled some weighty tracks brimming with genius one-liners… I suppose it all begs the question as to how good the release would have been were he a free man…I guess we’ll never know. Crazy, eh?
I’ll post again once I’ve had time to thoroughly listen to it, but for now, here’s a tune to warm you up.
