Here's another hardcore rap album which I wanted to post long time ago. Surely there's a lot of good anarchist hip-hop around, and I'm not planning to post all of it on here, but I'll make an exception for this one. I know virtually nothing about XWolf Cell SolidX (also written wolf-cell-solid) except they're a side project of a straight edge hip-hop group called superXcontra:

"From the underground into your scene and taking over - superXcontra is comin through to give a true alternative to all those hardcore and straight-edge kids that love hip-hop but are straight tired of the bling, cars, and hoes bullshit that has no true message or meaning - taking the old school hardcore ethic of two thirds message one third music down a totally different route, superXcontra have concocted a lethal dose of 100% SXE underground hip-hop"

I anyone's interested, here's the only superXcontra LP "Never Give In - Never Surrender" (2005), but I personally prefer the material which they've recorded later as wolf-cell-solid, since it's way better. While I'm neither vegan nor straight edge (but pretty close to), I respect them for making really combative and inspirational music. Plus it isn't like there's a lot of sXe hip-hop out there - I can think only of XReign of TerrorX and the likes, and some really mediocre local projects such as XJihadX, XGreenNemesisX, or XJeffry GoinesX (the latter isn't that bad, though) - so it'd be pretty safe to say that XWolf Cell SolidX are one of the best among their kind.
