It’s that time of the year when Brick magazine comes through with another 250-pages bundle dripping finesse from its glowing pages. For those of you who are (still) unacquainted with it, Brick is an independent publication peaking into the hearts and minds of trailblazing hip-hop and black music artists through interviews, essays and masterful portraits. Conceived and printed out in the UK, the mag is now clocking eight issues and with it comes a mouth-watering range of covers featuring Kano, Freddie Gibbs, Dominic Fike and Teyana Taylor.

Having been active with Brick since its third effort, I’m stoked to have yet another byline in the mag by way of a chat with Michalis ‘MsM’ Michael. Somewhere in September, I had the opportunity to sit down with the engineer at his studio in North London and have a chat about the early days experimenting in his bedroom, laying down grime’s sonic foundations and splitting the studio with Skepta or Wiley.

Besides ‘MsM’ (and the ones on the cover), there are also stories with Kojey Radical, Sampa The Great, Levelz and so many more. So grab a copy at Brick’s home on the web and follow the team on Instagram.
