Blee - The Black Lion Chronicles

This is a real nice free mixtape of London based artist, Blee, released by Cross Seas Entertainment and distributed via a legal torrent.
Its good to see some positive lyrics mixed with a street swagger and some more club friendly beats than UK dudes are usually to allie themselves with, but the lyrical content is not diluted at all as evidenced with "Revolution Eyes" and the freshly honest "Goodnight", with a thoughtfull and necessary breakdown of race politics and language on "The Black Review". Self belief is obviously not in short supply on this mixtape, along with solid words of Blee himself says "Gather wisdom, use your wisdom to gather wealth and let your wealth be surpassed by your virtue"
