The IRS - The World Is Theirs (9 out of 10) out now on Merciless Records.

THE IRS are a five strong crew from South London consisting of ED STRONG (Producer/MC), RANDOM DEVIATION (MC), KING KAIOW (MC), SUPERB (MC) and DJ GUIDE ONE.

The crew provides a mixture of lyrical flare, bass heavy beats, intelligent and original subject matter and cocksure charisma. A thought provoking variety of topics including general laziness, addiction, bitterness, city life, hard times and the love of money are made light work by the witty wordplay of Ed Strong and King Kaiow. The CD is quality throughout, with the type of classic Hip Hop production that appeals to me. Most of the production is by Ed Strong, but he is well backed up with offerings from Chemo, Complex and I.Am.Ill. The choices of the samples for the loops are flavoursome and obviously make it easy for the MCs to get live over. With cuts by DJ Guide One this CD contains all the pre-requisite requirements to make people stand up and take notice.
