Drique London (@DriqueLondon) has been bubbling below the surface of the NC Hip Hop underground for a few years now, steadily building a faithful following, as well as carrying on a tradition of gritty, soulful sounds championed by Little Brother. Combining elements of New York dopeness with Southern hospitality (so to speak), Drique London (Madrique Sanders to the unknowing) has taken that fast last down Interstate 40, driving home the notion that Southern emcees don't always spit tall tales of "ridin' 'round and gittin' it" on a regular basis. On the song "The Cypher", London is joined by like-minded Carolina artists King Mez and Tab-One, creating a joint that is first-rate, in-depth, and definitely dope. This 2011 offering is from the proper album debut The Manual.
