Bonkaz – You Don’t Know
Bonkaz shows people he can have fun with his music too with his new track “You Don’t Know” which samples Dizzee Rascal’s “Bonkers”. Produced by Splurgeboys and Sonny Reeves, Annie Mac announced it as her ‘hottest record in the world’ on her Radio 1 show. This track is set to be another future anthem from Bonkaz, who we can see is going to be bringing us hits for a long time to come.
Yellows – Yella Belly
Alwayz Recordings rapper from North London Yellows has just dropped the visuals to accompany his new freestyle “Yella Belly” which premiered on GRM Daily. Yellows talk real life issues in this new one, what he’s been going through personally and why he’s been quite for a bit musically. He rides the beat like a pro and his flow is naturally tight on it. This is real and why it’s one of my tracks of the week.
Young Spray & Giggs – Gangster For Certain
What a combination. When you hear these two names together you know this is going to be a banger. North London’s Young Spray joins forces with South London’s Giggs who are two of UK rap’s hardest; bring us the video for “Gangsters For Certain”. This is UK rap at it’s grittiest and is a street anthem that will be a classic for years to come.
Novelist – Endz
Lewisham Grime MC Novelist keeps coming with the bangers and “Endz” sees the 18-year-old take it back in time to the foundational roots. The video is nostalgic, looking like it was filmed on a handheld camera giving it a vintage feel, and the beat is minimal allowing Novelist to spray his bars about his hometown of Brockley.
Kyle Lettman – Crush
Kyle Lettman that will get you feeling all hot under the collar when you press play on his sexy, brand new single “Crush” off his second EP Under Construction which will drop next month. “Crush” brings old school R&B vibes back that we all remember and love with some reggae influence, which kind of reminds us a bit of Sean Paul but more R&B. It will make you want to hit the dance floor as it’s filled with straight vibes bringing a basement feel.
