Birthed from the scent of stale weed smoke, a hazy laboratory, brown paper bags covering empty longnecks, and calloused thumbs as a result of PlayStation controllers is "Running with Scissors". The album is an imaginative listen from start to finish, with a dark undertone that does not succumb to the played out battle style status quo of Hip-Hop. Honest, conceptual, topical, and often quite humorous lyrics roll over brooding and snappy arrangements for a perfect winter sound scape.After forming a bond and discovering their chemistry on the "You're All Ears" album, Sammy Scissors and Maggot Mouf decided to go all in on this project. As Maggot Mouf says, "I quit my job to focus on this album and we'd have a studio session every fortnight. Some time's I'd write two songs in one night, other's we'd go through a Q and played PlayStation" - a remarkable work ethic indeed. When questioned about the album, Maggot Mouf could express no truer words than "I'm no press cunt, I can't even spell properly". This is no bullshit, no fuck around, tell it like it is rap with a tongue in cheek twist that lends itself some hard hitting topics."The Mish" is a candid presentation of the stressful upbringing and septic environment that Maggot Mouf grew from. Over an ominous Scissors arrangement, Maggot Mouf explores the current state of his life and how, through dumb luck, he's risen out of the downward spiral that has surrounded his family and friends. Must lends his hands to the project with cuts on "Crave", a clear standout on the album, that embodies the insatiable lust for cash to pay for rent, booze, floozies, and food.Rigorous Recordings pass through on "How We Spit", graced by an effortless Scott Skillz, while Plarks the Fumble Tongue makes an energetic appearance on "Runner". "Dreamscape" and "F the W" both feature an emerging talent in the form of Gutz. It's track like these that show the synergy of real life brothers meeting over the Sammy Scissors' backdrop. Also featuring the likes of Mata & Must, Kid Selzy, Retainer the album is sewn together with some final touches care of DJ's Buick (3 x ACT DMC Champ) and DJ Paypercutts. With Sammy Scissors' daughter on the way, Maggot Mouf's lack of employment, and both having a history of legal issues, the album speaks for the everyday person that is sick of all the mundane bullshit that life brings. In their world of uncertainty, the one thing that remains certain is "Running with Scissors" stands as a cut above the rest.
