'First Things First' - House Hold Family (free download)

Aside from the fact it's taken me 2 weeks to find out how to open their zipped download only to find untagged tracks that sometimes aren't brilliantly recorded House Hold Family have put together a nice little showcase of their tracks and artists. If you use my download link you won't experience the first two problems.

Over a selection of beats from elsewhere Slumrok, Devize, Rago and Mr. Macks rap Britishly displaying influences from the likes of Task Force and Jehst. 'The Waiting Room' by Slumrok is pretty funny and apt at this time of Swine Flu hysteria (although it seems to have died down - the hysteria that is). 'Imagine' is a nice reusing of Snoop and Dre's track of the same name. House Hold Family are a promising crew and 'First Things First' is a good display of lyricism and delivery.
