Taken from my other favourite label Associated Minds blog . This needs to be listened too, one of the sickest mc's to come out this country has blessed us with a free ep . . . Beats .
Yes Yes Preachers of the Gospel. We come like wise-men, but not from the East. And we come baring some festive gifts for you.
After some stand out guest appearances this year on a whole heap of critically acclaimed releases including Sir Smurf Lil's 'New Bloodline' LP, Evil Ed's & Conspicuous LP and Mudmowth's 'Circus In The Cemetery' 12" people are talking about Willo Wispa.
No one, and we mean NO ONE, spits like him. Simple as.
And so before we release his 'Wot's Willo On!?!' LP in early 2009 (that'll feature a whole heap of the countries best producers and a few choice guest emcees) we thought we'd let the world know why we wanted to work up with London's own true drunken master.
So we put together 'The Earlier Escapades of Willo Wispa.' If you read the liner notes included they'll explain it all - but we dug around other peoples archives to pull out the roughs and rares of tracks that kinda deserved get out there more - but are either sold out on vinyl or seemingly lost on peoples dead equipment - that made us wanna work with him so much. It's only tip of the iceberg stuff but it gives the world the start of the experience that is listening to Willo Wispa.
