Generation Distortion is the latest EP from MC Tempo.
The famed former drug dealing atheist turned Christian rap artist, MC Tempo, is back with this 5 track EP titled ‘Generation Distortion’.

Renowned for his 24 hour freestyle rap, MC Tempo holds no punches as he verbalises a number of controversial issues within youth culture. All 5 songs comment on a number of different issues within culture and is written through the eyes of a teenager. Social media, fake news, acceptance, sex, abortion and addictions are just some of the themes verbalised on this intriguing EP.
