MTV The Wrap Up: UK Rap Rundown [News]

Last week I attended Lil Nasty’s ‘Nasty Piece Of Work’ EP launch at Silk Club in Camden. The EP itself will be available to buy on iTunes on December 16. Lil Nasty, Flirta D and Jammer performed for us on the night.

On the subject of grime last week saw a few of the Lord Of The Mics hype sessions being released including the ‘headline’ clash between Lil Nasty and Maxsta. We also saw Grimmy and Grim Sickers, D2 and Eyez, Proton and Realz, Lil Choppa and Zeo’s hype sessions. More should be dropping next week.

Two of the finest South London rising rappers Dru Blu and Fekky came together for a collaboration on Dru Blu’s recent album ‘Double Or Nothing’.  Last week they released the video to this banger which sees Dru delivering some of his hardest bars and Fekky’s classic ad libs.

I talked about the release of Murda’s mixtape ‘A Brick From The Block’ a few weeks ago so if you missed that and want to see what he’s about go and get that now. Last week he also dropped a video from the tape titled ‘Murda’ where he talks through his experiences for this street track.

Next up we have more artists from South London, an area that’s always been strong in the UK rap game. Brixton’s DVS, Syikes and Naja (Mr Sozah) headed down to Westwood’s crib to showcase some new fiery hot bars for this outstanding freestyle.

More fire from Brixton this one called the ‘A Town Line Up’ and sees C1z (A Money and Lil Trev), Sneakbo, Lil Shak, Ribbz, Mr Sozah, Crazy, Feel Fr33 and more. The ten minute track sees them all spitting some hardcore bars on this ten minute long track. Make sure you go and check out this talent from Angel Town.

Musically he’s been quiet for a little while now not having released any tracks of his own. Last week Ex from USG took to Twitter to release two unheard tracks on his Soundcloud ‘Stack It To The Loft’ and ‘Wonderin’. We will probably see these two tracks on his forthcoming mixtape ‘The Ex Files’ which should be out this month.
