REALITY RAPS – April 2004. Kid Acne drops three pearls of bug-eyed boom-bap stupidity – Jockey Slut. More off-the-hook mirth-rap from your man like Acne – Vice Magazine. Reality Raps was the moment I stopped simply admiring Kid Acne and actually started loving the shit he does. Sureplayer – DJ Magazine. It’s clear from the cover it’s going to be great.
