? SonnyJim & Must Volkoff’s collaborative album Tailor Made Ostrich is out today on digital platforms! ?
SonnyJim first linked with esteemed Australian producer Must Volkoff when touring his Trading Standards mixtape down under in 2008, joining on several tracks for his Psychonaut EP and LP in a single studio session. Since then the pair have maintained ties with collaborations on both of Must Volkoff’s critically acclaimed production albums White Russian (2013) and Aquanaut (2017).
SonnyJim is not your typical underground British MC. The now London based Birmingham native is somewhat of an enigma. Never short on confidence he seems content to ignore most of the UK Hip Hop scene while collaborating with only a hand full of premier artists from the USA, living a lavish drug fuelled lifestyle and pursuing prosperity. Designer clothes, designer weed, German whips and Michelin star meals occupy his ostentatious lyrics. Renowned for his disdain for the industry and run of the mill rappers, SonnyJim is currently one of the best in the game and he knows it!
After dropping his self produced Mud In My Malbec LP in June of 2016, SonnyJim’s work rate has been relentless, releasing a string of impressive albums in recent years including heavy weight collaborations with Vic Spencer, Conway, Westside Gunn and Roc Marciano.
SonnyJim continues his winning run with his latest triumph Tailor Made Ostrich adding to his ever expanding catalogue. His delivery is cavalier as always and wit razor sharp. Must Volkoff’s jazz inspired instrumentals, chiefly composed from scratch with lush vintage keys and trembling guitars soaked in spring reverb provide the perfect scenery for Sonny to gloat about his opulent lifestyle.
Including guest appearances from Jehst, as well as Pang stalwarts Nelson Dialect and Joe Snow, Tailor Made Ostrich is available courtesy of Pang Productions and Tuff Kong Records on digital platforms from September 15, with Vinyl, CD and Cassette dropping on October 16.
