Starting out as a battle rapper, Sonnyjim progressed to releasing music as a solo artist in 2005, when he put out Soul Trader E.P. As the title suggests, Sonnyjim had set out to cement his name in UKHH. The first track “Headlines” is a put-down track, a general statement to other rappers. With numerous bangers on the 8-track release, the affair ends excellently with (penultimate) the title track, “Soul Trader”; a soulful, heartfelt insight into Sonnyjim’s writing style and creative process.
