Braintax- Run The Yards / Last Tenner

September 21st, 2006

It’s been five years since Braintax has dropped an album but the awfully long wait is almost over. Ahead of the highly anticipated second album comes its lead single, a strong double A side reminding us why Braintax is one of the most celebrated UK rappers of the past decade.

Produced by Beat Butcha, ‘Run The Yards’ is a very strong offering on which Braintax shares his thoughts about the very flawed music industry. The hook’s infectious and the beat’s extremely impressive whilst the verses are packed with tons to think about.

The self produced ‘Last Tenner’ is equally as great, with a really bouncy beat and a lighter subject matter about the joys of drinking and typical late night situations. It’s a fine example and reminder of Braintax’s distinct rapping and production style which is really great to hear again. The vinyl includes dirty, clean and instrumental versions of both tracks and is out on the 2nd of October.
