“The Context” by Joshua – Debut Album Out Now + Discount Purchase Codes for “dhh” Readers!!!

London based emcee Joshua just dropped his debut LP “The Context” and sent it our way; all I can say is that it’s one truly incredible piece of work start to finish! The first thing that struck me was Joshua’s hard-hitting, straight up, tell it like it is lyricism that really put’s everything he relays in his message into complete perspective. Mix this with Gurps’ flowing melodic beats that compliment Joshua perfectly really makes for one hell of an album and one that I can highly recommend adding to any good hiphop collection. It’s music with a message that puts you in the shoes of the story teller whether he’s discussing the ills of consumerism, self-empowerment, love, war, hunger, oppression… well I’m sure you can get what I’m saying… real issues that affect a wide variety of people all over that I’m sure most can relate to no matter where you’re from. It’s all about “The Context” in which you choose to see it. This album has truly moved me and I’m grateful for the opportunity to listen and share my thoughts on it.

“do_hiphop” is NOT a label. It’s hip hop in itself promoting whom we feel are the most influential artists of our time from all over the world who deserve to be heard by the masses. Founded in June 2010, “do hiphop” is a website creating awareness of causes created through forces beyond our control and willing the true hip hop listener and artist to believe that they are able to be the major contributing factor in changing people’s mind-sets and lifestyles for the better, not only with what they put out but also with whom they affect, collaborate with and change. “Ultimately it’s about what we put in”, says ThiNXx(a representative of do hiphop). “So many musicians out there get so wrapped up in their own world and how they’re going to make it that they forget about who’s listening and how much can be accomplished just through being conscious and creating awareness of something that whether they like it or not… Actually affects them… Things like poverty, disease & oppression affect us all, no matter how socially elite we think we are and it is our responsibility as human beings to do all we can to invoke change which we CAN do through our music”. Change starts the minute you invoke it! We choose to see beyond the hype… home is where the heart is. Join our movement;
