Pixies Tracks Of The Week @TheBugzyMalone @Skepta @Fluxpavilion @Gfrsh @HarryShotta

Bugzy Malone – Watch Your Mouth

Manchester grime MC Bugzy Malone has been putting in the work with his presence and buzz being more prominent as of late, especially with his lyrical beef with Chip helping to excel his popularity. He dropped the first visual “Watch Your Mouth”, produced by Rude Kid, shot in his hometown from his forthcoming EP Walk With Me out July 26. The video depicts the grittiness of the track where he is giving a warning to people to watch themselves. Could it be a pre war track warming up for Lord of The Mics 7?

Skepta – Lukey World

Last week the death of Lukey Maxwell who was fatally stabbed, hit a lot of North London Grime MC’s in a bad way inlcuding Chip, Paper Pabs and more. His close friend Skepta paid homage and respect by recording a track”Lukey World” dedicated to him. Skepta honours him by reflecting to the world on his friend’s strength, kindness and music he was due to release.

Flux Pavilion – Who Wants To Rock ft. Riff Raff

Flux Pavilion the label co boss of Circus Records performed live at EDC New York, showcasing his new track “Who Want To Rock” ft legendary Riff Raff who gives the track a trap element with his insane, mic wrecking lyrics. Although the beat keeps a more electronic UK feel. It’s safe to assume that this track will be on Flux’s forthcoming album, and if this track is anything to go by, we can expect big things.

G Frsh ft Stormzy & Tinie Tempah – Sometimes

G Frsh drops the visuals for the very powerful “Sometimes”. The Berlin shot track is filled with emotion and self-confession, showing us a softer side to the three rappers and giving us a closer look into their minds. We hear G Frsh, Tinie Tempah and Stormzy trade bars regarding feelings after a relationship break down.

Harry Shotta – Animal

Charlie Sloth took to the radio to premiere D&B/Jungle MC Harry Shotta’s brilliant new track “Animal”. It has now been reported that it has now broken the World Record for the most words in a track, previously held by Eminem on “Rap God”. The lyrical beasts fast-paced flow went over the previous record by over 200 words. The track has blown up and is currently in the top 10 UK hip hop charts. Watch the visuals below.

MTV The Wrap Up: UK Rap Rundown [News]

Last Tuesday I headed down to Brixton Electric to Naughty Boy’s ‘Hotel Cabana’ tour. Many special guests joined him on the night showcasing a wealth of UK talent including Play Dirty’s Krept & Konan and Yungen and Wretch 32.

Us lot from The Wrap Up also went to Eskimo Dance on Saturday night and I don’t think I’ve missed one of these since the legendary night has made a comeback. It was a great night with good performances from Ghetts, D Double E, Footsie, OG’s, BBK, Flirta D and many more. If you love grime make sure you head to one next year.

Franko Fraize is an artist who makes really original music with heart. His sound is totally British and he appeals to the modern day generation painting a picture of life and culture here in the UK. His new track ‘Treasures’ is about love but not in a cheesy way, he delves into the subject in a way that we can all relate to. The Last Skeptic produced the track and he is also working with Mike Skinner and Pete Cannon.

Calibar returns with another release enlisting fellow North Londoner Wizzy Wow who takes care of the production and hook for him on new track ‘Animal’. The track is definitely one for the clubs but still hip hop as Calibar serves up punch lines with the bass. We hear his next track is with Ghetts be sure to keep an eye and ear out for that.

I never would have put Jaja Soze and Scrufizzer together on a track, but the outcome is a good one and I like the fact as a young MC Scrufizzer is thinking out the box and reaching out to different people. The track titles ‘Decisions’ also features another rapper called Faithy and sees the three spitting positive and reflective lyrics over an upbeat production.

South London’s Pak-Man has a new project dropping very soon, a mixtape called ‘Grams 2 Grands’ which I hear is set to be special. In the lead up to this he put out the visuals to ‘Beatboss Freestyle’ which will be on the tape. I’m looking forward to hearing what else he has to offer.

Young Mad B’s album was released this week, ‘MV3 Stress Relief’ which is the third installment in The Malbum chronicles. The album is an earnest look at his life and experiences in music and fatherhood. It couples the struggle with determination over some relaxed beats.
