Madchild and Evidence Connect For “Badchild” Banger

blame it on JES7 May 1, 2017

A few days ago, a friend and I were building on the legacy the Swollen Members laid down for Canadian Hip-Hop artists, before digging into his closet and breaking out unwrapped copies of their debut album Balance and their 2001 follow-up, Bad Dreams. The thing is, I never realized until that moment that producers Evidence and the Alchemist made their mark all over those first two albums.

So it was only fitting that the cipher come full circle with Evidence producing the entirety of Swollen Member Madchild’s upcoming fourth solo album The Darkest Hour. After revealing his therapeutic outlet on the album’s lead single, “Write It Down,” MC returns with a premiere of “Badchild.”

Hear it below and pre-order The Darkest Hour—out July 28th—on iTunes or on vinyl.
