Robert, SONNYJIM, The Purist - Orange Is The New Black

Robert’s full-length debut comes in the form of ‘Orange Is the New Black’, blending Folk,Psychedelic & Prog Rock samples with raw hip-hop to create a unique and uncompromising sound. Lyrically dense, open-hearted, and encompassing true stories. The album was conceived and the lyrics were crafted during a stint at Her Majesty’s Pleasure , whilst The title and art were inspired by the biography of cult leader Osho (The Bagwan) a book Robert cherished during his incarceration . ‘OITNB’ doesn’t just leave it to the lyrics to portray the pain-filled and ruthless journey he has enlisted cult favourites Sleaford Mods, Kool Keith, Rag ‘n’ Bone man & Slug of Atmostphere to help paint the picture of a imprisoned Prophet.
