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.

MTV Wrap Up – The UK Rap Rundown [News]

To kick this week’s Rap Rundown off, lets talk gossip. Professor Green went on a bit of a Twitter rant last week, lashing out at his label, writing: “Why would your own record label hinder you? Answers on a postcard.” He then went on to say “Dignified silence is pointless. A rushed second single, the ‘Remedy’ video a month late and now similar problems with the ‘Avalon’ video unfold…”

Answering some people’s tweets, he added: “Just to reiterate something for the stupid, my problem isn’t that they take that money, it’s that there are people not working for it.” Obviously he was frustrated, but he did point out that “there are a lot of people who are amazing at their jobs @ EMI.” I think Pro G was just about to quit smoking and was rather stressed at the time, so maybe his label won’t take it to heart!

London has been buzzing with energy and major events since the Olympics began. On Saturday I went down to Puma Yard in Brick Lane to catch one of my favourite bands, Clement Marfo + The Frontline. They wowed the crowd yet again, bursting with energy and getting us all moshing. Professor Green headlined the gig; but we got a surprise as Usain Bolt turned up to DJ with Manny Norte. I also attended the RWD x Adidas party, which was at a secret location in Shoreditch. Performances there came from Wretch 32ScorcherBashy and more…

The USG team have kept the tracks coming strong, with Squingy releasing a track featuring Preecha entitled ‘Everyday’. Their youngest member Geko also released a net video for the track ‘Life Ain’t Easy’. It’s safe to say that the team are definitely putting in the work.

 With the Olympics closing ceremony taking place and the Paralympics due to start, Calibar showed some love for his hometown, giving us ‘It’s A London Thing’ featuring Splurgeboys. We also saw an SB.TV Warm Up Session from him over the ‘Stay Schemin’ beat, where he spat: “Excuse me for being late on this beat, I’ve been away for half a year, meeting after meeting just planning my career.”Squeeks talked about the developments in his music career when he dropped the visuals to ‘Changes’. Political Peak had a similar theme in mind as he talked progress and perseverance on his new track ‘Tables Turned’, which is the first track from his forthcoming mixtape ‘Dreams 2 Reality’ which will be available on September 1.The rapper everyone has been talking about, J Spades, has been in the studio with Tinchy Stryder and they have already shot the video to their new track titled ‘Lead Role’ – make sure you watch out for that one coming soon!
