When ma­jor-la­bel ker­fuf­fles led to Kar­di­nal Off­ishall’s record­ings be­ing shelved, he didn’t raise a me­dia ruckus claim­ing to be the vic­tim of a clever cor­po­rate con­spir­acy, and he def­i­nitely didn’t try croon­ing pop songs in­stead. He did what any re­source­ful rhyme rip­per would do when faced with a road­block – he sim­ply went un­der it and be­gan record­ing and re­leas­ing his own mix­tapes and white-la­bel sin­gles. His off-the-chain Kill Blood­clot Bill set, backed by his hard-hit­ting Black Jays posse, kept par­ties rocking all year long and laid the ground­work for his ban­gin’ new Fire And Glory (Vir­gin/EMI) CD, sched­uled for re­lease Novem­ber 15.
