Mist – ‘Ain’t The Same’
Birmingham rapper Mist really killed it with the video for his new track, ‘Ain’t The Same’. Filmed in Dubai, it shows Mist living life on a boat, being given gold chains by a Sheikh, driving sports cars, and generally living it up. It’s really setting the levels in all senses – production wise (s/o Steel Banglez), the video, and of course Mist’s bars. Mist has built up his credentials this past year and is stepping it up with every release. His ability to connect and tell his life through his bars is what has gained him many fans.
Ice City Boyz – ‘All Out’
Church Road’s Ice City Boyz have followed up ‘Pressure’ with brand new cut ‘All Out’. Each and every one of them goes in hard over the dark production, with twinkling keys prowling over the beat. They take it to the streets for the video, which shows them with bottles, and getting harassed by the feds. This is six minutes of straight heat from the crew, who are set to do some serious damage in the UK Rap scene.
Mic Righteous – ‘Honour Mic’
In the lead up to the release of his Dreamland album, Margate rapper Mic Righteous delivers another stellar visual from it. ‘Honour Mic’ shows Mic in a pensive frame of mind, delivering real bars with a passionate delivery, something he’s well known for. The haunting hip-hop beat allows him to flow with power and intelligence – taking us through different subject matters such as other rappers and the music industry. “Do what you can I do what I like, too many begs on too many hypes, too many threats when nobody dies, not enough fist fights too many knives, too many skets telling too many lies, too many too many times.” Mic kills it with his flow, switching it up from fast-paced bars to more relaxed ones, letting his passion shine through.
Reekz MB ft. LD – ‘No Face’
Reekz MB is joined by 67’s LD for hard new street banger ‘No Face’. The track fits them both perfectly because if you’re a fan of UK rap you will know they both cover their faces, with LD wearing a silver mask, and Reekz covering his with a black one.
The two masked, South London rappers discuss the police, beef, grinding and more. The video shows them with a whole crew out on the block at night. We even see some nuns running around, misbehaving with masks on and blowing up a car. Reekz shows off his wordplay with bars such as, “Man a turn thriller, Jackson, man hit him up like Pac did.” LD brings his hard flow to the end of the track: “I raise my mash on the streets and I’ve kicked mans head in with Reeks. I don’t know about peace, I’m a real chef, I pepper my beef.” These two know how to make a banger together.
Skeamer & Clue – ‘Run Up’
This is a heavy track straight out of South London courtesy of Skeamer and Clue who are representing the OJB crew. The streets at night are the perfect setting for this underground banger, where they both talk about the realities of their life, pagans, beef, and trapping. The ominous beat with its chime lurking throughout gives it a sinister and menacing feel, which gives way for their bars to match. Skeamer spits, “Love me or hate me, there still gonna rate me, death to the two face, death to the pagans, you can’t beef with the mandem.” Whilst Clue goes in, “Came to the block with Skeams, duck man down might burst them, I put n****s in check, check my scoreboard, deep in the trap you can tell it’s a trap when you walk on the floorboards.” The duo definitely need to keep making tracks together as this is straight fire!
