Easily one of the most distinctive voices in the game, Birmingham's Devilman has a delivery that captures you straight away. A combination of great wordplay, a sense of humour and his midland twang provide an instant calling card that he's been successfully dropping for well over a decade. Weighing in at seven tracks, "Devilman's State Of Mind" is almost album-level in both size and consistency. And it allows the Sika boss to represent in all directions and really show us what he's capable of. From the lewd bedtime behaviour of "Dirty Black Man" to the stunning D&B finale "Drum & Bass Father" - where he successfully weaves Obama, armour and banana into one of his slickest flows to date - Devilman has upped his ante once more.
