So, the world didn’t end in December….was anyone a wee bit disappointed?
Yes, me too.

Still, my mate The Ruby Kid has included my album in his Top 10 Hip Hop Albums of 2012 on the Hip Hop website – storming in at #10. 
He even used the words ‘reify’ and ‘dialectical’.
As soon as I’ve checked my dictionary, I’ll know whether to thank him or shank him…[pause].
Thanks, R.Kid

You can see the whole thing here.
And also, check out the Kid himself and his excellent new EP here
