MTV The Wrap Up: UK Rap Rundown [News]

The MOBO’s returned to Glasgow for their 18th year and we had some commendable winners. On Saturday we saw a duo that have kept a lot of people talking this year and had huge achievements winning best newcomers, well done to Krept & Konan for their award it was truly deserved. The best male award went to the Godfather of Grime, Wiley who this year dropped an album and too many tracks to name showing his incredible work rate. Best hip hop/grime went to Tinie Tempah who will be releasing his ‘Demonstration’ album very soon.

Speaking of Krept & Konan last week they dropped the video to one of their bangers off the ‘Young Kingz’ mixtape. ‘Young N Reckless’ features North London emcee Chip. They recently performed a sold out show in the 02 Islington Academy and have another nearly sold out show coming up in December.

Chip returned to LA to continue work on his third studio album. The first day he was back he put on Instagram a picture of himself with Busta Rhymes. Maybe we can expect collaboration there. Chip’s always kept himself in the public eye, whether it’s freestyles, his tracks, collaborations or through other paths he knows how to keep his name relevant. On Friday he showed us his take on Drake’s ‘Pound Cake’ telling people this is he is still growing as an artist and there is more to come.

S.A.S took it down a completely different route to what we normally hear from them as we were introduced to a new track from them ‘Better Than This’. The two brothers Mega and Mayhem took it down a dubstep route with the beat for this track. What do you think?

Lady Lykez made a quick return after her track which tore up the airways ‘I Love My Butt’. ‘Rosa Parks’ is the newest one from the fiery emcee who recently flew to Atlanta to perform at the AC3 Festival representing the Best British talent. She shows off her more cultured side to a woman who inspires her and shows off her skippy flow for this edgy track.

P Money dropped a banger last week titled ‘Round The Clock’. A hip-hop beat overlaid with metal comes from Loadstar, with P’s familiar voice giving a warning, “If you want it you can get it / But be careful when you get it”. As usual he rides the beat effortlessly in true P Money style.
