Review: Sonnyjim X Leaf Dog – How To Tame Lions


This is a collaboration which we at Fabricate have LONG awaited, since first hearing Sonnyjim feature on ‘Digging For Gold’ from the ‘Dog ‘N’ Bone’ EP by Leaf Dog and Rag N Bone Man, which dropped on High Focus Records almost exactly a year ago in April 2013.

Dropping on April 21st, ‘How To Tame Lions’ is the product of a powerful chemistry between Birmingham-based rapper Sonnyjim, founding artist of EATGOOD Records with the experience of accumulating 30+ releases since 2005, paired with Leaf Dog, a veteran lyricist of High Focus Records who has since become widely renowned for his distinctively ambient productions, producing ‘Fame’ by U-God (Wu-Tang Clan) featuring Styles P last autumn alongside a number of other high-profile projects.
