Hypo ft. Suspect & Rich The Kid – ‘Buss It Down’

Hypo is one of the Kings of UK Rap. He is behind one of the founding crew’s Mashtown, and has now delivered us the visuals to his brand new epic single ‘Buss It Down’. It features two rappers from both sides of the pond: Suspect from South London and Rich The Kid from Queens, both respected rappers in their respective countries. The Beat Boss delivers the minimal trap production for this international link up, which brings together old school UK Rap flows with a trap sound that makes the track very flavoursome. Hypo is set to push the UK Rap sound to the point of no return. Look out for Mashtown’s album, also dropping this year featuring the original crew.

Abra Cadabra – ‘Stay’ ft. Danzey

North London artist Abra Cadabra hits us with another banger, ‘Stay’ featuring Danzey. The track’s beat is a lot smoother and melodic than what we’re used to from Abz, with his smooth, distinctive voice gliding over the beat, along with singer Danzey who provides a verse. Abra Cadabra is seen in a drop top Jeep cruising around his ends of Tottenham, representing the area he grew up in. The lyrics reflect the video well with him rapping, “I ain’t playin’ no games, no way, cos I’ve been trappin’ for the money all day,” whilst the video moves to a club which sees him, Danzey and his friends all having a good time and popping bottles.

Lancey Foux – Left Home

Following up from ‘Goat’, 21-year-old East London rapper Lancey Foux is making a name for himself with new track ‘Left Home’, produced by Nova. He’s been teasing this track since November, building up the anticipation and appetite for it with his fans. It’s an upbeat, infectious new track where Lancey talks about how he’s doing better and how he came home better than he left, amongst other things. This could very well be a big summer smash. Lancey has a lot of potential and is already turning the right heads…

Youngs Teflon – ‘Lifestyle’

One of the best UK rappers in the game, Youngs Teflon drops a brand new cold track ‘Lifestyle’ complete with some very colourful new visuals to boot. It’s a perfect summer track from the ever-creative and inventive artist, who flows about his lifestyle, women, music and more, even addressing why he has remained an independent artist: “They still wanna know why I ain’t got a deal, but the phone’s been booming yeah the line blown.” Tefs is seen with a nice swagger in bright shirts, gold chains and sunglasses in some shots that add to the flamboyance of his lyrics when he talks about money and stacking it up for his unborn children and mother, and bringing “it back to the gutter.”

Margs – Trenches

Margs is stating his position in this brand new lyric-heavy track ‘Trenches’, where he brings us some fully loaded punchlines. It’s an authoritative track with lines such as, “This rap game’s full of d******’s, that’s why I don’t wanna hear about gang. North South, East, West, everybody know about man.” The video matches the lyrics with some menacing looking friends of Margs – some clad with masks accompanying him at a pool club. We also see rapper Joe Black in the video too. He isn’t taking any prisoners with this track that’s for sure.

The Sounds of UK Rap

Skrapz – ‘Enemies’

Fresh from Anthony Joshua playing Skrapz’s ‘They Ain’t Ready’ as he headed into the ring to go on to beat Wladimir Klitschko, the Ice City Boys representative brings us a brand new track called ‘Enemies’. Rapping in his trademark flow, Skrapz’s lyrics reveal that he doesn’t “fuck with anybody that prevents progress.” He raps cold, real-life lyrics over a dark, trap production showing his ambition and drive, hence why he has a large fanbase and is thought of by many as one of the best in UK Rap.

Yungen – ‘Fools Gold’

Yungen brings us a laid-back, summery tune in ‘Fools Gold,’ where he discusses gold digging girls, how he’s not really just into looks, and how there has to be more to his woman than just a pretty face: “Snapchat she always sending me the whole filter, she got man coming home to no dinner. I’m like baby girl a wifey ain’t all about looks, so you best start learning to cook. I don’t want a pretty face with no brains get your head in your books.” He’s telling girls to dream bigger, be independent and do it for yourself. The visuals show Yungen and his girl in Central and South London in his car along with views of the London Wheel in the background.

 

Abra Cadabra ft. Sneakbo – ‘My Hood’

Abra Cadabra is joined by Sneakbo for ‘My Hood’. The dark track is joined by an equally sinister video that matches the mood and theme of the track. The video opens with an actor being asked to open a briefcase, where he pulls out two photos and is asked to get rid of the people in them. The men in the photos are Abra Cadabra and Sneakbo, and he clearly doesn’t get very far as we see him in the next shot bloodied and bruised. It shows off Sneakbo’s hard flow and strong lyrics stating his lifestyle, “I came a long way from a push bike, blacked out hoody I’m a hood guy, gas gang I was like Suge Knight, now I live it up every month book flights.” Abra brings his trademark delivery along with some hard lyrics, “When it comes to the beef then we dun talking.”

Dutch – ‘Speeding’

Hackney rapper Dutch brings us the inspirational and deeply emotional ‘Speeding’. Dutch brings his fans into his world and his struggles he has faced such as being able to give his family money in this introspective offering where he also talks about how Skepta’s ‘That’s Not Me’ made him realise that blowing your money on certain things wouldn’t help, so he went back to the drawing board. You can hear Dutch’s passion shine strongly in his delivery and lyrics over the melodic production from Michelin Shin.

Fekky – Billi

Fekky hits us with his brand new and brilliant video for ‘Billi’ after his return to Charlie Sloths’ infamous Fire In The Booth where he hit new heights with his lyricism and style. The new track is a taster of what to expect from his new album El Classico and shows Fekky with lots of swagger in a fur coat in the TV Toxic-directed visuals. The track is directed at his opponents and haters: “hating n****s everywhere they wanna lick man down.”

“Talking beef, f*****g punk look at you now.” Fekky goes in with straight, savage lyrics like the D Double E bar, “Head gets mangled and dangled,” and no nonsense delivery that should really show anyone going up against him, it isn’t worth it. Fekky delivers us with another straight up banger, and we can’t wait to hear more from his forthcoming album.

Stefflon Don – Real Ting Remix ft. Giggs

Stefflon Don reincarnates her ‘Real Ting’ track released last November by releasing a remix and getting UK Rap don Giggs to jump on the track to add extra flavour to the track. Steff adds an extra verse herself too, giving the track a burst of freshness. Plus there is a wicked video self-directed by Steff herself to go with it.

Danny Dorito x Stogey – Lyrical Skengs

E.B Records, a new independent record label has made a great start to the year with their second release dropping this week, only 3 weeks into the year. ‘Lyrical Skengs’ comes from Nottingham artist Danny Dorito and Eastbourne’s Stogey produced by label mates Audio Slugs for a wicked Grime track full of energy and organic flows and bars.

Ghetts ft Shakka – You Know My Ting

Grime legend Ghetts has created another hit track ‘You Know My Ting’ which will be going off in the clubs. Shakka lends his hand to the chorus adding a different element to the track singing about women. Whilst Ghetts spits bout peng tings, swag and more! What a banger..

New Gen – Money Haffi Mek (ft Stefflon Don & Abra Cadabra)

It’s a New Gen thing next. ‘Money Haffi Mek’ has two of the UK’s hottest and newest rappers on the track Stefflon Don and Abra Cadabra who spit hard bars throughout the track over a trap-led beat. It’s catchy, it’s about making money and it’s going to be an underground banger straight away. The New Gen album is out today as well!

Y.SJ (67) – Loose Screw 

67’s Y.SJ drops a more laid-back, slower track to what we’re normally used to from the 67 crew, and it works well. The beat produced by Carns Hill allows the rapper to show off his lyrical skills on his solo debut track. This will be the 3rd song off the forthcoming mixtape #KylieKendall.
