Professor Green

Alive Till I’m Dead

(Virgin)

2 star rating

London rapper Professor Green is too weasel voiced to claim “All the girls want to see me naked” (dream on, prof), and his duet with Lily Allen, in which he plays the “bad boy” and she trills the love interest role, is a romantic mismatch of Ben Affleck/J-Lo proportions.

You suspect that left to his own devices he’d stick to the grimy street-rap of “Jungle”: the results would have made for a less commercial but more powerful debut.
