SLY5THAVE What It Is The recording had been first devised as a benefit concert in LA which was attended by Dr. Dre who took to the stage to express thanks for Sly5thAve’s arrangements. Having spent the past three years performing the project with orchestras around the world, ‘What It Is’ sees Sly5thAve retain the high-quality that fans and critics alike have come to expect from him while stepping out with something considerably different, delving deeper into the worlds of hip hop, jazz and soul. Celebrating not only his own versatile musicianship but that of his collaborators and friends, ‘What It Is’ is a collection of tracks showcasing the best of the multi-faceted musician. A sought- after collaborator himself, Sly5thAve has attained much respect from his work with a host of highly talented musicians including; Prince (as a member of the New Power Generation Band), Stevie Wonder, Gladys Knight, The Dave Brubeck Quartet, Taylor Swift, Janelle Monae, Freddie Gibbs and Quantic. “It’s a little jazzy. There is some hip hop in there. A little bit of orchestral chamber vibes... It’s me”, Sly5thAve admits. From the NYC-Texas inspired sounds of “More Or Less” featuring prolific New York rapper Marlon Craft to the politically charged Brazilian-Portuguese “Expatria” recorded with Grammy-nominated Thalma de Freitas, the album spans a myriad of genres and offerings from fellow talented musicians.

Potter Payper Thanks For Waiting Jamel Bousbaa, better known professionally as Potter Payper, is an English rapper and songwriter from Barking, London. In 2021, he signed to the UK division of Def Jam Recordings 0207 Def Jam. This will be a landmark release as the first full album launch from the UK division. UK rap’s favourite bespectacled wordsmith is back on the scene after some time away. Born Jamel Bousbaa to an Algerian father and Irish mother, Potter Payper has returned with a statement project that solidifies his status as a seasoned pro in a scene that has shifted dramatically in his absence. During the 2010s, when the ‘road rap’ scene was booming, Potter was never inactive for long and his explosive BL@CKBOX freestyle in 2013 marked him as a rapper to watch before dropping a string of projects including the elemental Training Day, which would form the basis of a trilogy that has developed and defined the artist that we see today. Although he was “making music in 2005, 2006, back in youth club days”, it was the aforementioned BL@CKBOX freestyle that would propel him into the spotlight and place him next to vets such as J Spades, Benny Banks and Joe Black in “best lyricist” conversations.
