    Ahmed has pulled together a supporting cast with sufficient cutting edge that it comparatively endangers the razorblade impact of his original compositions.

    Over five years and around an international filming schedule, Riz MC has managed to use his credentials to mount a dazzling attack on what he sees going on in Farringdon Road, and has emerged with the kind of crossover masterstroke that could outshine the National Curriculum.
  3. In parts Riz's flow is slightly awkward, but his rhymes are tight and full of razor-sharp quips, and the production is slick and energetic.

    Riz knows what he's doing on the mic. A virtuoso who leavens his virtuosity with ear-grabbing syncopation and hooks, he's not afraid to let his flow breathe.
  5. When it's good, it's a thrilling and ambtitious state-of-the-nation address.
  6. 60
    No question his lyrics are smart but they can sound studied, valuing intricacy over flow.
