The Sounds Of UK Rap ft. @mrBennyBanks @JoeBlackUK @docbrown88 @Ciz_ER @Sneakbo @Fredo @Bonkaz

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.

Pixies Tracks Of The Week @AYO_BEATZ @wearesosmusic @ImRichardRawson ‏@bignarstie @TremzAYLAAH @cadenza @BellySquad

Ayo Beatx x SOS Music ft. Red Cafe & Chip – Abu Dabbin Remix

Ayo Beatz and SOS Music dropped movie worthy visuals for the ‘Abu Dabbin Remix’ getting Brooklyn lyricist Red Cafe and London’s Chip to spray some seriously weighty bars for the worldwide link up. It’s a high energy track that is the perfect sound to lead you into the forthcoming Summer months.

Fazer – I Woke Up

Producer/rapper Fazer is back in the game with a brand new single ‘I Woke Up’ which sees him lay his soul bare detailing the lows he faced in his lengthy music career. It’s self-produced and draws on elements of trap along with soulful strings. It’s great to see Fazer back doing what he clearly loves and re-connecting with the music.

Tremz & Big Narstie – BD Gang

Tremz drops the lead single ‘BD Gang’ from his mixtape ‘Lifestyle Of A Pirate’ which features his label mate and grime legend Big Narstie. Produced by Show N Prove over a circus themed beat, the two artists go bar for bar with Narstie taking on a scouse accent for his bars and Tremz keeping it authentic with his powerful scouse accent.

Cadenza – Till We Do It ft Prynce Mini & Bugle

Cadenza is the West London producer known for mixing a variety of sounds fusing the sounds of London with Jamaica. This is taken from his recently released ‘Hijack’ EP and features a very sick UK rapper Prynce Mini and Jamaican artist Bugle. The camera follows Mini around the streets as he provides us with punchlines over a menacing beat.

Belly Squad – Morning

Belly Squad drop a video titled ‘Morning’ from their recently released debut EP ‘Banana’. Mixing afrobeats with rap, bringing us a party vibe to their music, this track is no different and shows the three members in a house party setting.

Pixies Tracks Of The Week @OfficialChip @OfficialKozzie @Jaykae_Invasion @Disclosure

Chip – Run Out Riddim & Hat Trick

Chip continues his assault on Manchester’s Bugzy Malone following up from “Light Work” dropping two more tracks “Run Out Riddim” and “Hat Trick” dropping bars with diss after diss targeted at the Manchester-rapper. He also dropped the Light Work EP which includes the three disses and the other original diss track for Bugzy “Pepper Riddim”. We should expect a response soon.

Kozzie – RIP Part 1 & Part 2

It’s definitely war season in grime as the legendary Lord Of The Mics returns for it’s seventh series. Kozzie and Jaykae are clashing each other, and before the live show on Wednesday (September 20), Kozzie sends two dub for the Birmingham MC, letting him know what he’s in for and firing warning shots. I wonder if we’ll see anymore in the few days in the lead up to the clash?

Jaykae – Blankets Bedtime

Invasion Alert’s Jaykae swiftly replied to Kozzie’s dub this week with one of his own “Blankets Bedtime” showing Kozzie he hasn’t taken his send lying down, and is not scared of the Lewisham based MC. These two have built such a huge tension ahead of their live clash, it’s certainly going to be very interesting and entertaining to watch on the night!

Disclosure – Jaded

Ahead of the release of their album Carcacal later this month, Disclosure reveal a brand new video “Jaded”. This is the latest video in a four part installment, picking up from “Omen” ft. Grammy winner, Sam Smith following protagonist Maria who steers her way across a dystopian civilization. It features Sam Smith, the Lawrence brothers who vocal the track and the Disclosure brothers.
