The D.O.T And A Hero

The Streets may have gone out with a whimper last year but Mike Skinner isn’t finished with the music industry yet, not by a long shot. Thanks to Annie Mac’s “Free Music Monday” series, we are treated to an exclusive track called “And A Hero” from a collaboration between Skinner and The Music’s frontman Rob Harvey…

The Streets – Computers and Blues (Album Review)

Submitted by / 10 years ago / Album Reviews

Reportedly the last album from Mike Skinner, Computers and Blues is a welcome return to some of the Birmingham-born rapper and producer’s finest work.
