Personal Records signs TROY SCALPELS!
The London based emcee Troy Scalpels signed to Personal Records earlier this year. We've all experienced great emcees - getting the crowd on that collective head nod - SCALPELS will get you shaking yours in disbelief............as he exhibits some of the best breath control EVER seen from an emcee. Lyrically offering sophisticated hip hop for the discerning headz - no gun bullshit basically!
Scalpels Claims his first Scalp!
October 2000, Creation Nightclub - Bristol......saw Scalpels hypnotize the crowd in the UK National Freestyle Championships. Four finalists were left from the first round held at Tudor Rose: Troy Scalpels, Chester P, Mike Assassin and Major. Brazen Entertainment then ran out of time. They offered each emcee the opportunity to take the £1000 prize money or go through to round two - double or nothing. Only one emcee took up the gauntlet - SCALPELS. Scalpels battled Reveal and the rest is Scalpel-history. The win was shall we say a resounding one.
Scalpels debut EP
"I Must Not Spit In Class" Scalpels long awaited debut release is now available around the country and at various sites inc: www.personalrecords.co.uk. "I Must Not Spit In Class" was written and produced by Scalpels and each track delves further into the vortex created by the lyrical surgeon himself. You can get a copy in selected urban stores in London, Bristol, Birmingham and Brighton and further a field.
Troy Scalpels is noted for his delivery of sophisticated lyricism over straight-forward beats
and symphonic synths.
Scalpels tells stories in rhyme with a British accent. On the CD his casual,
laid back flow gives us two different ways of looking at the fairer sex. 'She's a Star' relays the all too common tale of confused and
pregnant teenage girls, while 'When I'm Peepin' explores the mysticism of unknown honeys.
