MTV The Wrap Up: UK Rap Rundown [News]

Last week was a bit quieter than usual as many people were working quietly behind the scenes for new forthcoming projects for example Peak’s new EP ‘Life’s Peak’ and Colours Miyagi ‘Sunshine & Rain’.

We saw a few video’s drop from the USG team last week and they also announced a new EP ‘Untouchable Street Generals’ will be being released on 31st March, a warm up before their full album.

Geko released his mixtape two weeks ago ‘Thoro In The South. The Manchester MC kept the buzz of this release going by dropping a video taken from the project of the same name. With no features from USG apart from one with Lefty, Geko shows his presence as an artist in his own right.

Squingy put out the video to ‘Like Me’ featuring Sky which looks like it was shot on a nice summer’s day in London. The content of the track helps you understand his and USG’s journey in music a bit better as he talks you through some of it, especially the struggle.

Part 2 of Essex rapper Potter Payper’s freestyle studio video was released to the public last week. He is very highly rated in the game right now, and will be a problem once he is released from prison. He released his first mixtape in Summer 2013 ‘Training Day’ which really caused a stir, check that out if you haven’t heard of him yet.

Brotherhood took to Link Up TV for their first Behind Barz freestyle and what a deep one it was. The sibling duo from Ipswich get serious as they discuss racism, enlightening people on their views. The pair are due to release their mixtape ‘Love Life Hate The World’ on March 9th, and from their impressive lyrics here it’s set to be a good one.

Lastly the list of the 2014 BOTB list was released last week and instead of gathering a panel to give the final list of the ten, the public were asked to vote on Twitter and the numbers were counted. The list should be revealed this week and I’m looking forward to seeing the shortlist and the discussions that come with it.
