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.

Stefflon Don – 16 Shots

Stefflon Don drops another visual off her recently released highly-rated mixtape ‘Real Ting’. She heads to Jamaica to save her mother in the video self-directed by the Don herself alongside Luke Biggins. ’16 Shots’ showcases her Jamaican roots with a dancehall-style beat and patois tinged lyrics.

Skepta – No Security 

Skepta dropped this track last year on Halloween and now we get the slick new video to match the greazy track along with a brand new verse too. Skepta fires shots at his enemies whilst taking on different outfit changes and different visual shots going between him and his crew dancing in a room with plaques on the wall, Skeppy on a table with men clad in suits and much more. Check it out for yourself.

D Power ft. Footsie – Shelly

D Power and Footsie, two Grime scene veterans join for a track trading bars about being two of the scenes top spitters. D Power says, “‘Shelly’ is about having the hardest lyrics and being able to last ANY clash, but also having bars that can buss up a club! That’s our aim for this track right here.” Produced also by Footsie, the two take to derelict settings for the video which you can watch below.

Big Narstie – They Don’t Know ft. Xaviour

Brixton emcee Big Narstie shows off his softer side on his brand new single ‘They Don’t Know’ ft. Xaviour taken from his forthcoming album release this Summer. Grime’s unofficial king of comedy shows he really can get deep and bear his soul to us, which is different to the man we normally see also demonstrating his lyrical talent.

Big Tobz ft. Cadet, TE dness, Not3s – Addison Lee Remix

Not3s track ‘Addison Lee’ was so popular that three wicked rappers have decided to come together for a remix, continuing the heat on this track. Big Tobz, Cadet and TE dness join to throw down some fire, mischievous lyrics, mashing up this huge new remix.

Pixies Tracks Of The Week @bignarstie @DoubleSmusician @SafoneMadone @Jammz @TODDLAT

Big Narstie – BDL Skank

Big Narstie drops the video to his future Grime anthem ‘BDL Skank’ where he gets things tropical. Watch the lively video where Narstie himself shows you how to do the dance. Big Narstie also launched his ‘Base Invaders’ game on Friday where it headed straight to No.1 in the app charts.

Double S – Yana Darg

Double S represents Grime in a perfect way capturing it’s spirit and true form, and his new track ‘Yana Darg’ is an example of this. Produced by The Heavytrackerz, Double S spits over a thundering beat like an experienced mic controller that he is.

Safone – Heard Of

Safone goes in hard with his new track ‘Heard Of’ where we see him at a car impound. His skippy flow complements the pace of the beat well, as he talks about how he has Grime that “No one else ain’t heard of…”

Jammz ft Scott Garcia – It’s A London Thing

Scott Garcia released ‘It’s A London Thing’ back in 1997 with MC Styles, and has sampled it for his tune of the same name with Jammz. The bass heavy production lends way for Jammz to spit his commentary about London, whilst the video gives a outlook of some different scenarios.

Toddla T Meets Andrea Martin ft. Silkki Wonda – Always

Toddla T warms up our autumn with this bittersweet brand new track, now with the accompanying video for “Always”. To launch his Steeze label, he teams up with Andrea Martin an R&B icon who is responsible for writing many R&B classics such as En Vogue’s ‘Don’t Let Go’ and Silkki Wonda who brings the patois, making this a chilled out reggae tune.

The Heavytrackerz ft. Lay z – Freak You

Lay Z has gone all sentimental on us for Valentines Day proiving there is a softer side to him. Teaming up with The Heavytrackerz who have laid down a smooth beat, sampling Usher’s ‘Nice and Slow’ for Lay Z to lace his soulful and gripping vocals on allowing the vibrations of the slow bass to be heard. It’s something completely different from the Boy Better Know Grime MC, but we definitely approve! This is only available via Red Bull at the moment, but will be available tomorrow to share….listen by clicking here

Skepta ft. A$AP Nast & D Double E – Ladies Hit Squad

Another one for Valentines Day, this time from the tracksuit mafia. ‘Ladies Hit Squad’ premiered on the radio on OVO Sound and then the video dropped in full effect today. The dreamy production is produced by Skepta himself, and features a verse from Grime legend D Double E and the hook is courtesy of A$AP Nast. The Grime ladies and men will definitely be banging out this tune and it’s sure to be a hit.

Rax – Money Bee ft. Zino Brown, Dee Pee & Bonkaz

South London lyricist Rax premiered his brand new track ‘Money Bee’ on Pigeons & Planes this week after taking a short hiatus from music. His new one sees a strong return from him, and is taken from his forthcoming project ‘Just For You’ that will showcase Rax’s diversity musically and his lyrical ability. ‘Money Bee’ features Zino Brown, Dee Pee from Section Boyz and Rax who are some of the best MC’s around right now. It’s full of tough bars combined with an eerie beat.

President T & Jammer – Best In Britain

Wooooaaahhhh this is hard! President T has made a HUGE comeback with latest release ‘Greatest To Ever Touch Down’ and now has announced news of his album ‘Stranger Returns’ which should be dropping this year. ‘Best In Britain’ a hype track, samples Grime classic ‘Rhythm & Gash’ and is produced by one of the best Zeph Ellis. It has braggadocio bars from President T & Jammer who can do it because they some of the best…

P Money, Big Narstie & Example ft. Takura – Access Denied

Huge riddim from P Money, Big Narsite and Example who go back to back with some heavy duty bars with all three showcasing their different flows and lyrics. With a hook from Takura and the production from Darq E Freaker this is one of the best tracks I’ve heard from this year.

Kurupt FM presents Champagne Steam Rooms – Koko 04/02/16 @KuruptFM

West London stand up! Or should I say Camden stand Up?

Kurupt FM the pirate radio station crew known for their comedy show on BBC Three People Just Do Nothing with its second series complete last year, took to Koko for their headline showChampagne Steamrooms. With shows up and down the country, they returned to their home of London on Thursday evening to a sold out show.

IMG_1601

Foundation (Sticky & Scott Garcia) kicked off the night, warming up things nicely with a rotation of some of the most banging Garage tunes known to mankind and host DR. Psycho bringing the energy to the half full crowd who had turned up nice and early, getting their positions ready for the main act.

Big Narstie the bass controller was up next and got the crowd bubbling nicely with his hyped bars. He performed tracks such as ‘Gas The Pipe’ and new track ‘When The Bassline Drops’ ft. Craig David. The DJ also dropped classic tracks such as ‘Rhythm N Gash’ by Rebound X.

IMG_1597

Chabuddy G appeared on the screen on stage, and then popped up on the balcony to the left looking dapper in an all-white suit and obviously a bottle of champagne in his hand. He announced that there was going to be a special guest, making everyone wonder who, then introducing himself as the special guest. Only Kurupt could get away with this! DJ Steves was another funny arrival as he swung down from the ceiling above the stage, quite comically on a broken harness. Steves took to his spot behind the decks and began dropping some heavy duty Garage tunes and the whole crowd started to rave.

The Dancehall set in the middle gave a nice, relaxed feeling after the Garage tunes and skanking out (yes by me too), and allowed our weary feet to rest a bit. Decoy did a good job of curating the set with Damian Marley’s ‘Welcome To Jamrock’ playing and the crowd chanting “Welcome To Camden” with what seemed like every single person in the crowd getting involved.

IMG_1615

The highlights of the night were when the special guests started to arrive on the stage. Garage favourites DJ Luck & MC Neat appeared first performing classic tune ‘With A Little Bit Of Luck’. Grime Gods Newham Generals were next with timeless track ‘Hard’. After Grindah’s own attempt at performing ‘Shut Up’, Stormzy came to take the weight off his shoulders and bring the energy bouncing about on stage.

The boys ended the night with everyone from the night who performed joining them on stage for a crowded performance of ‘Get Out The Way’, packed full of energy and vibes.

IMG_1606

Kurupt FM have proved again that even though they are every bit comical, they need to be taken seriously. They have risen through the ranks and portrayed a culture to places unseen before. They aren’t just doing it for themselves; they are doing it for everyone involved.

Pixies Tracks Of The Week @ChaseandStatus @BigFris @Skrapzisback @CraigDavid @bignarstie @Bonkaz @scrufizzer

Chase & Status ft. Frisco – Funny

After announcing their London Bars series which will be released on their label MTA Records, Chase & Status dropped the first track from the series titled “Funny” featuring Boy Better Know’s Frisco. The beat is grimy and Frisco spits fluidly over it. At the end of the video we see Giggs calling the producers, is this them showing us he’s next? It’s a warm up for their fourth studio album, and will see some of the UK’s best MCs working with them on the project.

Skrapz – They Ain’t Ready

Church Road-rapper Skrapz has been doing his thing for a while dropping mixtapes such as “’80s Baby” and “Skrapz Is Back”. He’s warming us up with this brand new track “They Aint Ready” which is on his mixtape out November 13th “The End Of The Beginning” and will see features for high-profile rappers such as Wretch 32, Giggs and his Ice City Boyz comrade Nines.

Craig David x Big Narstie – When The Bassline Drops

Kurupt FM seemed to have kindled a musical bond between Craig David and Big Narstie when they went on 1Xtra for their Sixty Minutes Live session. The two clearly hit it off and went straight into the studio to record a track together. Their both legends in their own right in different areas of dance music and their new tune “When The Bassline Drops” is an absolute banger. It’s got an old skool garage vibe filled with Craig’s smooth vocals and Narstie’s heavy lyricism.

Bonkaz – You Don’t Know

Bonkaz relives the Grime culture he grew up in on his new track “You Don’t Know, sampling one of Grime’s most influential MC’s Dizzee Rascal’s track “Bonkaz”. He pays homage to Kano, More Fire Crew and Channel U amongst others. The video shows a more fun and light-hearted side to the Croydon-born MC and he couldn’t have picked a better-named tune to sample!

Scrufizzer – Rapid Freestyle

Scrufizzer is one of Grime’s fastest flowing lyricist and is impeccable at it. He takes on Rapid’s instrumental to drop nothing but hard bars, repping his ends West London too.

Lady Lykez (@LadyLykez) – Nobody Can [Audio + Music Video]

The scene definitely needed a shake up and Lady Lykez has certainly caused a commotion with Nobody Can a track about being boxed in as a ‘female’ MC category and taking shots at males in the scene saying she can do what they can and do it better from Wretch 32 to Stormzy, P Money, Big Narstie and more. I hope one of them are brave enough to speak up…

MTV The Wrap Up: UK Rap Rundown [News]

This week The Wrap Up team were invited down to the Rascals ‘Class 90’ album launch. The first song off it to be released produced by Show N Prove and featuring Big Narstie ‘My Different’ has been getting a lot of love and he was there to perform it live with them. Squeeks, Manga, Maxsta and more also performed tracks live they were featured on on the album…

Wretch 32 had everyone talking last week as GRM Daily resumed it’s Daily Duppy for it’s 3rd series and Wretch showed everyone how it was done. It’s going to make it hard for the other rappers now as he showed what a fine lyricist he is and why he is classed as one of the UK’s greats of our time.

This rapper is one that everyone needs to be aware of and is perhaps overlooked by some, but things are changing. Mynature from South London has got people taking notice this year with his releases and ‘The Massacre’ has hit the nail on the head for me showcasing his machine gun flow. Mynature will be causing waves in 2014 with his forthcoming album, watch this space.

Alwayz Recording artist Yellows has been gearing up for the release of his 19 track mixtape ‘Yellows Pages 2’ which features AR artists Fuze BW, Paigey Cakey, G Money plus Sneakbo, Mark Asari and more released 10th December. The video ‘Coz I Can’ featuring Stacky was released last week, see who you can spot in the there.

Murda releases his mixtape ‘A Brick From The Block’ mixtape in a few days (29th November) and gives us a little taster of what to expect by dropping a video via Toxic TV ‘Out Here’ featuring Bellzey. They are both rappers to look out for, and I look forward to hearing the mixtape to see what it has to offer.
