Hot on the heels of releasing Radio 1/1xtra play-listed single ‘Search Party’, critically acclaimed spoken word artist GEORGE THE POET brings you ‘Search Party Part 2’.
In contrast to the acoustic downtempo sound of ‘Search Party’, Part 2 sees the wordsmith deliver his trademark socio-political lyricism over old school R n’ B and Hip Hop influenced production. Referencing the NHS, tax rates and police budgets among other issues, the message rings loud and clear against a backdrop of classic Puff Daddy inspired beats. An entirely different approach to the original recording, providing the flip-side of the same coin.
Prior to the release of ‘Search Party’ and ‘Search Party Part 2’ this year has seen GEORGE THE POET release tracks ‘Cat D’ and ‘Wotless’, in addition to publishing his first collection of poetry – also entitled ‘Search Party’ – via Virgin Books, and completing his first sold out nationwide headline UK tour.
