Black the Ripper releases new project ‘Money Grows On Trees’

8 August 2018

Black the Ripper returns with his new project, Money Grows on Trees.

The North London artist dropped a 12 track long project full of songs that allowed the artist to showcase his lyrical skill and ability to shine on a large variety of instrumentals.

The album opens with the song “My Name is Black The Ripper” where the artist introduces his persona to new listeners over the few seconds long track. The song acts as a quick introduction to the artist before the project fully begins.

In true Black the Ripper style, his love of marijuana is a running theme throughout. The project is laced with frequent declarations of his love and respect for weed, especially on the smoker’s anthem “Bill It” featuring Chip and Big Narstie which recently received visuals which can be seen here.

Outside of music, Black the Ripper has become infamous for his Dank of England movement that includes weed inspired merchandise and paraphernalia as well as public events and stunts like smoking in an ASDA store and renting a section of the London Eye to smoke in along with other followers of the movement.

Black the Ripper rides hip-hop beats with an old-school vibe on tracks like “Money Grows on Trees” and “So Dope” and he simultaneously proves he can jump on a grime instrumental with track “Hating” where he opens with the line, “ain’t been on grime in time but I’m back now”.

Money Grows on Trees features special guest appearances from some of the biggest names in UK music including Ghetts, Ms Banks, Footsie and Aystar.

The new offering from the Edmonton repping rapper comes after the release of his projects Doe or Die, Vol. 1 and In Dank We Trust last year.
