Album: Master Shortie, A.D.H.D, (Odd One Out)
Sunday 26 July 2009
Master Shortie’s CV reads like an Alan Sugar fantasy.
South London rapper Theo Kerlin, just turned 20, is a Brit School dropoutwho, through his own entrepreneurial energy, is releasing a debut album on his own label. But too many tracks on A.D.H.D feel half-baked, with too many lazy and repetitive lyrics about groupies and gold chains. Furthermore, jocularly comparing himself to Osama bin Laden suggests he’s commendably unbothered about appealing to the US market. Not bad for starters, but you feel there’s more in the tank.
