MTV The Wrap Up: UK Rap Rundown [News]

I went to check out Big Narstie’s BDL Tour at the Purple Turtle in Camden last Monday which saw Grime’s finest grace the stage including Big H who was clearly hyped and confident about his clash on LOTM6 with P Money, Big Shizz, Sox, Jammer, Meridian Dan, JME, Footsie, Chronik and Flirta D who got the most reloads of the night.

Let’s talk releases now and I’m going to begin it with my track of the week that I can’t get enough of. This is a brand new one from 23 year old North Londoner Coops titled ‘Chillin’ and has an old skool, boom bap vibe to it, that’s soulful and laid back, with Coops delivering an effortless, chilled flow to match the tracks title and beat. This one will be on his forthcoming mixtape ‘Lost Soul’ and we should expect more videos to be dropping from that.

Youngs Teflon went into No.1 on the iTunes hip hop chart with his latest project ‘The Renaissance’ mixape. Last week saw him keeping the project alive by releasing a video taken from their ‘My Pattern Intro’, the second visual to be released from it, produced by Carns Hill who laid down a hard beat for Tefs to showcase his lyrical style.

South London’s Pak-Man takes it trappy for his new one produced by Cee Figz which is an absolute banger and that could easily be heard in any club. He is joined by Goldie 1 who provides a catchy hook. The tune all in all is a decent one and has got a lot of hits on the video, and hopefully will do well for Pak-Man in the lead up to his new release ‘Legendary’ out soon.

Last but not least Stormzy released a new visual last night which I was really looking forward to, and we know he smashes any cover he does, this one was no different as he coveredBeyonce’s ‘Flawless’ this time around before a new video release on Thursday. Watch it and take in his bars and remember we said to watch out for him, as I predict big things ahead. He also has an EP out soon.
