Jehst

Billy Green Is Dead YNR PRODUCTION­S. CD/DL/LP

-

The lesser-spotted Jehst takes the character from Gil Scott-Heron’s titular 1972 track into the present day on his fourth album. It’s an ambitious concept but the UK hip-hop veteran pulls it off, painting vivid pictures of dystopian distress in unfussy, baleful monotones over Beat Butcha and Paul White’s dense soul, electro and jazz soundbeds (even interpolat­ing some of Iggy Pop’s spoken words). Worth waiting for.
