Nothing To Proove is the debut album from the Birmingham-based Overproof Soundsystem. The soundsystem consists of Jah Grizzly & Stallion from G-Corp, vocalists Ras MC T-Weed and Juggla, and the Mighty Magoo on percussion.
They were formed in the winter of 2002 at Different Drummer??™s monthly Overproof night (which featured the likes of Blood and Fire, U Brown and 100% Dynamite). During the following summer they hit the road for a series of shows around Germany, including a number of live broadcasts on National Radio and TV stations. The growing profile resulted in further tours of Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Croatia during 2003.
During their time off they??™ve spent long hours in the Elephant House Studio writing and producing the album. The standard had been set by the debut single ???Watch What You Put Inna??? (a firm favourite of Mr Scruff and Richard Dorfmeister), and it was an obvious choice as first track on the album.
Other highlights include the guest vocals of Kenijah Boothe (son of the legendary
Ken Boothe) on ???Live It Up Right???, the chilled roots style of ???The Plea??? (featuring a killer vocal from Ras MC T-Weed with support from Juggla), and the careful reconstruction of Mad Professor??™s ???Kunte Kinte???.
