Roots Nanuva - New release from Ninja Tune and Big Dada, Run Come Save Me. Review by Jason Thornberry.
02/10/01

ROOTS MANUVA

When hip hop of the British extraction is mentioned nowadays, invariably Rodney Hyltonís name comes up. As Roots Manuva he has been Kicking The Cack for several years now, and is attempting to push over the foam wall marked Acceptance Here.

Heís doing it all on his own terms, mind you. It isnít as though he hired 45 dancers to flank him on a studio lot as he pretends heís a gangstuh, or flashes plastic pistols in videos with big bootie bitches, etc.

Beanie Sigel complains of paper cuts ďcounting moneyĒ, but my guess is that Hyltonís only recent ones are from actually reading books, and itís rather evident in songs like 'Witness' or 'Swords In The Dirt' (with assistance on the track by Niara, Danny Vicious, Rodney P, Blackitude, Big P and Skeme). Itís not going to ever be easy topping 1999ís Brand New Second Hand, but this comes absurdly close.

You make the call. Iím too busy listening to both.
