MTV The Wrap Up: UK Rap Rundown [News]

This is another visual we have seen to be released from Young Don’s mixtape ‘Weather Man 2’, and he impresses again with ‘I’m About This Life’ as he heads to Miami to link up with US southern rapper Gucci Mane. The track is a heavy trap record with the pair matching the beat with some hard bars… 

We also saw another UK US link up last week this time it was from East London’s J Spades and another rapper from Atlanta Waka Flocka. The southern part of America seems to really be liking the UK rap vibe as we’ve seen a lot of collabs from that part. The track is taken from Spades ‘MMMP2’ tape and whilst Waka was over here the visuals were shot.

A video came out last week of Brixton rapper Sneakbo in a studio session with French rapper Frenchy Le Boss. He has previously recorded tracks with Young Spray, DVS and Jaja Soze and Sneakbo obviously liked what he heard. The track there working on is called ‘Jump In The Car’ and is sounding like a banger. Look out for that coming soon.

G FrSH strikes while the irons hot and dropped a freestyle over his Disturbing London label mate Tinie Tempah’s new track ‘Trampoline’ which was produced by Diplo. He spits some hard bars over the popular track which is being played everywhere on the radio right now and reached No.3 in the official charts.

The last track I’m going to mention comes from one of my personal favourites Giggs. I was so excited to hear the first track from his forthcoming album ‘When Will It Stop’ as he took to his site to post a message for his fans, I’ll let Hollowman do the talking.

 “What’s good to all my supporters out there, since my last album a lot has happened. As you all know, with me getting locked up and everything it’s been quite a f**ked up journey but at the same time I thank God for giving me a second chance at life. Everything happens for a reason. I also wanna thank every single one of you for keeping the faith and not giving up on me. Trust me it means more than you could ever imagine.

“I hope you have enjoyed all the new music I have been giving you to warm things up but now it’s time to stop f**king around and start getting into the new album “When Will It Stop” so without further ado I feel that I owe it to you to, to personally give you a taste of my first single off of the new album. So here it is “(Is It Gangsta?) Yes Yes Yes” produced by Mark Ronson.”
