Goldie Lookin Chain
Guns don’t kill people rappers do

Welcome to the latest offering from our friendly neighbourhood Newport chavs, ‘Guns don’t kill people rappers do.’

Following an incredible performance at Glastonbury, this brigade of Burberry clad, sun visor sporting, bad-ass chaps have graced us with their second single which precedes an album release in August.

Goldie Lookin Chain - Guns don’t kill people rappers do - Single Review

Already described as The Darkness of British hip-hop, Goldie Lookin Chain continues in their quest for universal draw smoking and truthful reflection of life in the ‘Port.

‘Guns don’t kill people rappers do’, candidly points out the holes in modern culture and belly laughs in the face of the establishment. “Guns don’t kill people rappers do, ask any politician and he’ll tell you it’s true!”

The only thing letting this track down is its dirgey sample – which is livened up towards the end with a touch of soul, but unfortunately overtakes the brilliant comedic flows of the Newport 8!

B-side soap bar is brilliant, but far too blatant to be an a-side me thinks! Maggot stand up however is poor, unfunny and really difficult to understand.

5/10
