On Wax / Malik Ameer x thatmanmonkz are Madison Washington: ((((FACTS)))))

Proper rap and proper beats: years in the making, producer thatmanmonkz (Sheffield, UK) and Malik Ameer (emcee, poet, Oakland CA via NY and now Paris) release their long player ‘concerned with and focused on the various psychological, financial and spirituals paradoxes resulting from physical or internal bondage‘.

Far from your typical hip hop release, Mad Wash’s album carries an overarching narrative exploring modern day slavery, inspired by the historical figure of Madison Washington, instigator of the largest slave revolt in history. Malik Ameer takes on the role of mouthpiece for this brave, timely and vital album.
