Just two weeks after the release of the first “Consortium Dreams” instalment, North London’s Ric Branson returns with a worthy sequel, delivering rhymes from the perspective of an individual with plenty of experience under his belt (both in the rap game and the street life) who has learned lessons and is keen to impart some wisdom to those who need to hear it.
Production comes from A.H. Fly, Sonnyjim, Juice, Karnate and Relense.
NY’s O The Great swings a heavy lyrical sword throughout this project, which bristles with a true passion for the art and culture of Hip-Hop.

The album also features appearances from Supreme Cerebral, BanishHabitual, Supreme Magnetic and more.
