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.

Skeamer x Skore Beezy – Better Place

Skeamer and Skore Beezy take it to the streets of Clapham Junction, their respective hometowns, for ‘Better Place’ – a song dedicated to their friends lost to the roads. The mellow beat allows the two artists to open up and pay homage with Skeamer coming in first, “This shit gets deeper, Veli on my t-shirt, banging through my speaker.” It’s a deep, reflective track, but also one that looks to the future hoping for themselves and people around them to lead a better life, doing it for the friends they have lost. Skore Beezy raps, “Tryna do this shit for my dawg, get him a better place.” It’s emotional and it’s real.

 

Young Adz ft Dirtbike LB, Gabos, 9Goddy, K Trap & Abra Cadabra – Free Gutta Part II

It’s been 7 months since we heard the ‘3 Gutta Remix’ from South London artist Young Adz which featured Dirtbike, LB, Gabos, 9 Goddy and Domez, and now the ‘Free Gutta Part II’ has been released with two additional rappers K Trap and Abra Cadabra. They take it to the hood again for the dark visuals matched with menacing bars over an ominous, trap beat. Young Adz flows on his verse, “Kidnap kidnap, kidnap crew, don’t know about you but me and LB made the news,” whilst still handling the hook which the track ends on. It’s still one for the streets no doubt, with all the rappers trading cold bars.

 

Belly Squad – Like That

Belly Squad are the London trio from East and South London that are mixing UK rap with Afrobeat melodies so well that they are due to make a huge impact this year. Their raw sound can be found on their brand new track ‘Like That.’ It’s infectious and showcases their African and Caribbean heritage. The production has irresistible production along with catchy lyrics that inherit their London hometowns, “I told her don’t worry I’m a nice guy, chilling in the ends chicks wave when I pass by, yea she heard that I’m a fly guy, hitters in the Germans beep beep when they drive by.” ‘Like That’ can be found also on Belly Squad’s recently released ‘Banana’ E.P.

 

Pakman – Verified

Pakman has been going in hard this year with a few releases already under his belt in 2017. The video opens up on a shot of him walking through Hillside Garden Park in South West London, his hometown, to getting in a Mercedes showing a juxtaposition of his life which is also portrayed through his lyrics. “It’s deeper than rap, it’s real life. I’m the same little yout you saw in Hillside, difference is now I blow a bag when I feel like, so I ain’t signing shit unless the deals right.” His flow is laid-back but his delivery is strong as he spits real-life bars over a melancholy beat produced by 5ive Beatz.

 

Suspect & Youngs Teflon – WDYK

Two of South London’s hardest UK rap artists Suspect & Youngs Teflon unite for ‘WDYK’ an abbreviation for ‘What Do You Know.’ The two bring their coldest bars over a trap-heavy beat for a street banger. Suspect handles the catchy hook with ease and also comes in for the first verse, “Only the realest with us, these n****s they talk, but none of these n***s are stuff, might bring out the chalk, line these n****s all up.” Tefs comes in next, “What do they mean, we going gold in 2017, now I got dirty money and clean, it was all a dream, now it’s as real as the fiends.” Both their lyrics are flamboyant, which match the clean video complete with icy watches and cars. Suspect has also dropped his mixtape ‘Loading’ with features from Giggs, Gunna Dee and more.

 

Congratulation to Nines on the release of his album ‘One Foot Out’ which landed at No.4 on the national album charts in the UK with a reported 1.5 millions streams in 24 hours on Spotify and Apple Music. Nines also revealed in a vlog that he has a joint album on the way with Ice City Boyz comrade Skrapz which fans will definitely be excited about! Apparently it’s already been recorded, so we can expect that soon.
