MTV The Wrap Up: UK Rap Rundown [News]

There has been an influx of good videos and tracks out over the past week that are of a high standard of quality, which is great to see.

Ghetts’ name was everywhere last week after his ‘Rebel With A Cause’ album dropped and he made his official chart debut. The east London MC has been causing a stir with his campaign, with a pop up free gig in Barbican and his headline show at the 02 in London on Friday. Congratulations to Ghetts on this achievement; it’s been brilliant to see an independent artist who doesn’t have to compromise his music.

Political Peak’s EP ‘Life’s Peak’ was released on iTunes on March 4, which featured seven strong tracks from the Brixton bred rapper. ‘Walk Alone’ was the newest visual to be seen from it since it was released, where Peak asks you to take in the story before he begins the track, talking us some real life situations.

As we know Giggs is one of the most rated rappers in the UK who made a name for himself with his unique style of rap and raw, authentic lyrics. His album ‘When Will It Stop’ was released last year, and last week saw the release of his track ‘Tick Tock’ taken from there produced by Bayoz Muzik.

Colours Miyagi is regarded as one of the pioneers in the UK rap scene, releasing tracks that will stay classics for many. The Peckham rappers previously released mixtape ‘Where’s My Money Reloaded’ which was released last summer was well received. He keeps thing flowing with a new track ‘Through My Lens’, a street banger showcasing his effortless flow and storytelling ability.

Youngs Teflon is another one that is up there with the best of them and he is due to release his 20-track project at the end of the month titled ‘Renaissance’. He gives us a taster of what to expect from the forthcoming tape by releasing a video taken from there called ‘Throwback’.
