Fallacy - Jackin 4 Beats 12" Promo
Fallacy
Fallacy
After the big tremor created by last summer's Groundbreaker track, big Falz is back and is stoking up the heat in preparation for the dropping of his debut LP. Previously it was Wordplay who did the licensing deal, but the rumour is that following the success of that record Fallacy is moving up the pecking order and could be coming out on Source, Circa or even the main Virgin label its self. Imagine the push he could get if that is true! So here we have a taster of Fallacy's skills on a one sided anonymous promo 12" as pioneered by other labels. Here is has not only teefed one of the current hot US productions a la Task Force or Bury Crew, but he has Jacked 5 or 6 and joined them all together in a Fingerprints of the Gods style. This is a heavy offering which has already been getting plenty of play on London's Itch FM and the BBC's 1Xtra.

The selection of beats starting off with a quick cut up of the old school DJ Request Line which quickly segues into Nore's well used track. Throughout Falz rips hard explaining that it is his voice on the beats that makes them rock the hardest. In the chorus he tells us to 'Eat the rich, jack their beats, press up dub plates and burn CDs'. Fallacy might tax your Apple Mac, but at the same time has a nice word for the dark skinned girl from Mis-Teeq, then all too soon the track ends with the Eric Sermon and Redman collabo. There is really nothing bad you can say about the beats, they are all well chosen bangers.

Overall then, this is going to do the job in terms of raising the awareness of Fallacy as a bona fide Hip Hop artist, rather than someone who the youngsters think is just trying it out and is primarily a Drum & Bass MC. It long past the time Fallacy should have returned home and gave his original fans the music they want. I've got no information as to whether this will be on the LP or not, in fact I have no information at all, however, I suspect not, so if you see it around make sure you get your grubby mits on it as this is bound to be a collectors item in the future. Fallacy is one of the MCs who will be taking over the baton and bearing the tremendous weight, expectations and hopes of the UK Hip Hop fraternity as a major label signee who has the opportunity to finally break through the mass sales barrier and elevate local music. Lets hope he can attain that success and further the growth and exposure of the homegrown whilst still putting out heavy tunes.
