Theophilus London - ACCEPT THE NEW
THEOPHILUS LONDON is one of the brightest rappers, songwriter and/or producer outta Brooklyn right now. Fader magazine agrees and places him at "the center of the borough's new urban pop movement."
UK music chimes on about 'em: "...his patter is sumptuous, his look untouchable, his soundscapes plucked from mythical ghetto neverlands...he's the real deal."
-Accept the New is moving fast up my itunes play counter,London is simply the black guy Ive always wanted to be, (and think i am.) London is dripping with confidence without bringing some hard new york shit; Instead you get smart rhymes coupled with flirty groves and always on a beat that sounds like something off of an old Joe Jackson track. (Dare I say Hip Hop meets New Order?) Either way, Make no mistake London is embarking on something memorizing.
