one of the most influential & admired figures in British hip-hop returns with his first album of original material in 6 years.

Inspired by Gil Scott-Heron’s song of the same name, the ambitious album follows fictional everyman character Billy Green on his solitary journey through an uncaring, individualistic world. Lead track '44th Floor' - produced by Doctor Zygote of Strange U - comes midway through the record’s narrative arc & finds protagonist Billy at breaking point; “feeling like my life’s a major fail, standing on the platform waiting for British Rail”. The record is executive produced by Beat Butcha & features production from Paul White & Jehst himself, plus guest vocals by Kashmere, Eric Biddines & others.
