Hamza

Founder and Editor-in-Chief of Mic Cheque. I’ve been writing since 2017 to deliver UK rap the literary treatment it deserves. My main goal has been to write quality album reviews for the UK scene that mainstream publications neglect. Rap fanatic since the age of 11 regardless of subgenre, whether it’s 90s boom bap or modern trap. My favourite rapper is Nas and Lowkey’s Soundtrack to the Struggle is the most overlooked UK rap album of all-time.
