Rhyme Asylum are a Hip-Hop group hailing from London, United Kingdom comprising of music artists:  Possessed, Psiklone & Skirmish. ‘RA’ are focused on bringing back classic “Boom Bap” hip-hop, accompanied by thought provoking, vivid lyricism.
The group’s most recent self-released project Solitary Confinement released April 23rd and features Ill Bill, Crooked I, Reain and DarkStar.  Plus heavyweight production from all over the globe from: Engineer, Al’Tarba, The Returners, Chemo, Hirolla, Profound, DJ Butcher, Think and Ill Fated.

The album art features photography from the incredibly talented RomanyWG.  The photographer/Urbexer (Urban Explorer) produces phenomenal images in abandoned buildings across the world.  During the album photo shoot, he captured shots of the group members inside a real, abandoned padded cell!


Like many other hip-hop outfits across the world, Rhyme Asylum are currently a totally independent venture. Aside from its obvious asylum-themed connotations, the title: Solitary Confinement was intended as a metaphor for their independent, unsigned status. The group wanted to raise awareness of the difficulty of financing and self-releasing a project; emphasizing the importance of a loyal and supportive fan base.  For without it there is no way the music can continue to grow…
