Biography

There are those that rap, and those that rap well; then there are those that transcend the confines of hip hop culture to become credible, commercial, mainstream pop acts – Kanye, Jay-Z, Eminem, for instance. But it’s unfair to compare Professor Green to any of the aforementioned; utterly British, uniquely inimitable, if anything; his closest equivalent is Lily Allen.

4.0 out of 5 stars The British Eminem! July 23, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Rapper Professor Green has had two top 5 hits in his native UK; "I need you tonight" (featuring Ed Drewett and sampling INXS's "Need you tonight" - "It should be me that wants to get rid of you, instead it's you that don't give a d**n..." he raps as he tells us of an ended relationship) and "Just be good to Green" (featuring the airy vocals of Lily Allen and sampling The SOS Band's "Just be good to me", though it's actually closer to the Beats International Dubby cover "Dub be good to me"). Real name Stephen Manderson and aged 26, he's been compared to UK acts The Streets or Lily Allen. With his nasal whiny vocals and aggressive lyrics, he's also earned comparisons to Eminem.

He mines a rich well of sound; skittery Funk on opening cut "Kids that love to dance" (featuring Emeli Sande), gritty Rock on "City of gold" or the more sublime "Oh my God" (featuring Labirinth and snarling swirling guitars), while the haunting synth-driven "Jungle" (featuring Maverick Sabre) wouldn't sound out of place on an Eminem album.

"Do for you" tells us he used to sell drugs for a living till he changed his career, "Falling down" juxtaposes downbeat verses to a Disco-ish chorus to good effect, while "Monster" features Example and is Techno-ish set to a staccato of beats. Closing the album are a trio of downbeat songs; the echoey Dubby "Close the door" (featuring Fink and harrowing strings), "Where do we go" (featuring Shereen Shabanaa and some Jazzy trimmings), and the heartfelt piano-driven "Goodnight", an ode to his grandmother who raised him and the albums highlight.

Aggressive, catchy, and playful all at once.

5.0 out of 5 stars Passionately Recommended October 5, 2010
Format:Audio CD
If you've come this far, then it's probably because you heard either Track 2 (Just Be Good to Green) or 3 ('I Need You Tonight'), or like me you watched the video for the former 5 times and decided "I definitely got to get this!"

And believe you me, you will not regret it for these tracks alone, although there might be a nagging doubt in your mind that maybe Professor Green is the next Vanilla Ice and that he has nothing but rap cover versions to offer.
Some of the first tracks on this album may give this impression and songs such as 'Oh My God'] and 'Jungle' were definitely weak and make you realise how difficult Eminem's job is (though he makes it seem easy).

That said, like Slim Shady Lp, this album was never going to be seminally brilliant from the off, but what it does show is a great deal of lyrical talent and that all important ingredient: Promise.

Tracks such as Monster and 'Where Do We Go' show great lyrical ability combined with a producer who knows what he's doing. There are also surprises such as 'City Of Gold' and Goodnight which reveal a talented performer who can equal the compelling edge of well-made American Hip-Hop.

I especially remember lyrics such as "I wanna thank Peter Andre*/ for looking after my kids..." " and "Five foot four and three quarters/ Half Italian Half Japanese/ And she can make cars crash in them jeans", and I strongly got the impression that Prof Green is no MC Hammer as his lyrics are soulful and compelling, rather than pop.

4.0 out of 5 stars very good May 11, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I like the music and I use it to work out with weights . I find it very inspirational and pumps me up . I first heard it on a you tube video , although it was a little bit different . It was paired with an Olympic lifting video by POKARFACE . I would not want a youngster to hear it as some of the lyrics are a little brash . But for an adult , they're great !

I really enjoy this album. Not his best album I must say, but the music is good nonetheless. It's pretty difficult to not like some of the tracks here.
