For what it's worth, politics aside; Braintax, in my opinion, did more for UK hip hop than anyone I can think of. Being down with the UK scene since the late 80's, the days of Blade, Demon Boyz, 11:59, Hijack, London Posse, Krispy 3 et al; when Braintax dropped the classic Fathead EP in '92 it blew me away. In terms of subject matter he was the best. His flow and lyrics were on point on every record, being bettered only as an MC (in the UK) by the phenomenon that is Jehst. At lot of talented artists achieved success via Low life, and those artists, without doubt helped the label become legendary - what happened at the end? not for me to comment on. For the music though, thanks Joe, you are missed - "My birth place is fresh you can lie and watch the comets, on green hills, but I need the city for my mean skills!"
