THE ALBUM KOMMA
MC Tempo’s newest release ‘KOMMA’ takes us on another twist in the journey of the intriguing rap artist. This 1 6 track album is built around 5 core tracks that are Off set against remixes, instrumentals, fillers and acappella music.
The theme of this album comes from its title ‘KOMMA’, the Greek word for party. The unique element of this project is that every song starts as a hip-hop track but transcends into drum & bass by the end of the song!
Extreme metaphors, cheeky comments and provocative punchlines all equate to the expert lyricism displayed by MC Tempo as he walks us through the stages of starting the evening, indulging the excite of live events and having too much to drink… before reaching the final destination… the ‘Afterparty’.
Coming from a broken home in England this hip hop artist MC Tempo (Mark Edwards) was expelled from 4 schools following the divorce of his parents and the death of his sister. He started to write aggressive rap songs to express the hurt he was feeling in his heart. He later got into drugs and into drug dealing to fund the habit. He found himself performing on the underground music scene at 15 years old. He later lost his hearing in his left ear whilst performing at an illegal rave event. Progressing on to staging illegal rave events, he met a Christian who took him to ‘we are Emmanuel church’ in Brighton, UK. It was here where he was prayed for in the name Of Jesus and had his hearing miraculously restored. As a result of this, he became a Christian and his music naturally followed suit.
