Consumer Guide Reviews:

Treddin' on Thin Ice [XL, 2004]
"Special Girl" Choice Cuts

Playtime Is Over [Big Dada, 2007]
Still a speed-rapping grimesta whose sound effects kill ("Bow E3," "Gangsters"). **

100% Publishing [Big Dada, 2011]
Finally an album about a rapper's midcareer anxiety that outlines his business plan ("100% Publishing," "One Hit Wonder") **

Godfather [self-released, 2017]
Grime godfather's first DIY album is his best ever even though he seems incapable of rhyming about a life beyond music, if he has one ("Laptop," "Back With a Banger") ***
