Benny Banks x Joe Black – FuckBoys
Two of Islington’s finest rappers return with their brand new video ‘FuckBoys’ – taken from their forthcoming collaborative project BNB – proving their weight in the UK rap game. The brazen track sees the two trade verses with their standout voices, direct deliveries and impenitently real lyrics. The two combined have always posed as a threat to other UK rappers, and their tracks heard from their forthcoming project shows these two are definitely back on their A game and willing to fight for the crown.
Doc Brown – Corruptible
You might know Doc Brown as the stand-up comedy success who talks about being a failing rapper and is currently touring with Ricky Gervais, but actually, he’s really good (at rapping) and his new track ‘Corruptible’ proves it. He’s been spitting for a long time, and his re-entrance into UK hip-hop comes at a perfect time. This track is the first track to be heard off of his forthcoming album Stemma, and comes with a polished black and white visual to match.
C Biz – Super ft 6IXVI, License To Kill & Look At You
C Biz is on one hell of a roll this year, releasing a string of tracks, and in the past two weeks alone has dropped three tracks ‘Super ’ ft 6IXVI, ‘License To Kill,’ and ‘Look At You’ ft. Hurricane.
First up is ‘Super’ produced by The Forbes and shows the North West Londoner rapping over a trap-inspired beat featuring another rapper 6IXVI with both of them barring back to back over verses with bossy, saucy lyrics.
‘License To Kill’ produced by Impack, quite rightly samples Shirley Bassey’s ‘Goldfinger’ keeping in the James Bond theme, but with a trap twist. He delivers his lyrics with confidence and fineness.
‘Look At You’ is the latest to drop and features another £R member Hurricane. This one has is still a trap beat but more lively with the whole tone of the track more lighter than the others. It’s upbeat and C Biz and Hurricane talk about making money amongst other things and being at the top.
Sneakbo – Thank God
Sneakbo gives praise to the most high on new track ‘Thank God,’ which he opens with an interlude from a Tupac recording talking about trusting nobody. It’s a deep track about making it out the ends and how people don’t want to see him make it, and he can’t trust many. The beat has a bashment influence, but nowhere near as bold as what we’re used to. Sneakbo speaks more reflectively and openly about his life: “I thank God for my mum she the man, I give her anything her young boy can. Before it’s too late see I love you mum, daddy left a real woman and she raised a son. Can’t tell nobody bout the things I’ve done, see I’ve had a hard life it was drugs and guns.”
I’ve also got some brand new UK mixtapes for you to check out. First up is from Fredo who has released his brand new project Get Rich Or Get Recalled, which has some cold features from Blade Brown, Donae’O and Ratlin.
Bonkaz has dropped the sequel to his 2011 release Quality Control with Quality Control 2.0.. The project is produced by New Gen’s Soul and Bonkaz released the first video off of it ‘Cash Money’ ft. S Loud.
