The Nextmen are one of the lesser-known hip-hop groups. Mainly consisted of two British producers with guest MCs…. hardly much is known outside of this info.
Their 2000 debut album Amongst The Madness…… is…… in a word? Essential.
This is one of the best hip-hop records of all-time. Period. Extremely underground. Released on the tiny hip-hop label 75 Ark. Killer rapping and production. And the scratching. Holy fuck.
Start with “File Under Truth” featuring the rapper known as Penultimate (probably one of my favorite unknown MCs, EVER).
ESSENTIAL HIP-HOP. Absolutely fucking essential hip-hop.
