Looking at the cover to Madness and Murder vol. 1 you kind of expect pure evil on wax. My first reaction when listening to it is with a bit of disappointment. It's quite regular style hip hop that we are getting served by Scatter Brain & V-Rock. But quite soon that disappointment vanishes when I realize that is some quality stuff up on this one. Scatter Brain's flow fits perfectly with V-Rock's beats and what we get is 9 tracks of straight up good hip hop. Nothing special, but since most music out there don't ever reach the good mark, this one is definitely worth checking out.
