MTV The Wrap Up: UK Rap Rundown [News]

I flew out to Ayia Napa in Cyprus on Monday afternoon for the Summer Love Festival presented by DJ Cameo. Held on Makronissos Beach on Tuesday, some of the biggest names in music performed including Tinie TempahG FrSHAngel, Fekky, Dot RottenScrufizzer and more. The festival was a great success and it’s always nice to attend one on the beach in the sun! I also hit the afterparty at Club Ice where Ms Dynamite performed…

Sneakbo has kept the visuals coming from his ‘Certified’ EP and yet again has come with a hard beat from Rvssian on ‘Trust Nobody’. He also proves why he is one of the finest rappers at the moment in the UK as he spits some honest and harsh truths.

Young Don released the first video to be taken from his forthcoming mixtape ‘The Weather Man 2’ over two weeks ago. The tape will be hosted by DJ Khaled who is quite a talked about man at the moment after his marriage proposal to Nicki Minaj. For this track Young Don is joined by rapper Smiler and singer Starboy Nathan in this classy visual where they are seen on a private jet sipping champagne for this nicely flowing track.

This week sees another remix of Migos’ ‘Versace’. This time it’s from a West London artist who is one to watch in the UK rap game. Shizzle shows why on this track reaffirming his status with clever wordplay and a relaxed flow.

Ghetts really shows a different side to him after his short hiatus from making music, slowing things down but still oozing passion for this spoken word introduction to his forthcoming project ‘Rebel With A Cause’. Mr J. Clarke takes us on a reflective journey of his life in this mature and poetical piece called ‘Definition Of A Rebel’.

Chip’s been floating around releasing a few freestyles and net video’s but nothing too serious. It’s good to hear he’s fully back on track and working on a new album in LA. Yesterday saw him put out the audio to new track ‘Holy Water’ which sees him looking back on his life, career and decisions he has made and also the future. His lyrical ability is as strong as ever in this track.
