Pixies Tracks Of The Week @EdSheeran @Kreptplaydirty @konanplaydirty @JMEBBK @OfficialChip @Modestep

Ed Sheeran – Photograph

Ed Sheeran drops the video to “Photograph” off his most recent album X. Known for his different and creative videos, this one takes us through his past to present with clips from home videos of his life. The video matches the song perfectly, and also shows Ed playing instruments which is especially cool as we get to see him as a youth in his element.

Krept & Konan – Freak Of The Week ft. Jeremih

Krept & Konan are due to drop their album The Long Way Home in two months and this is the second track to be heard off of the new project after “Certified”. “Freak Of The Week” sees them collaborate with American singer Jeremiah over a DJ Mustard and ADP beat. The two South London rappers bring the heat in what will definitely be a summer banger.

JME ft. Giggs – Man Don’t Care

BBK’s JME released his brand new album Integrity which hit a very commendable no.12 on this weeks official album charts. The “Shut Your Mouth” MC released a video the same day as the album for the monster track “Man Don’t Care” featuring UK rap God Giggs and produced by well known grime producer Swift Beater. JME is as cheeky and witty as ever with his bars which he shows off impressively on this tune.

Chip – Feeling Myself ft. Kano & Wretch 32

Chip was given a challenge from KFC as part of their new campaign #PackedMoreIntoLunch where they are encouraging people to use an hour of their day in a productive way. He took new single “Feeling Myself” off his brand new EP Believe & Achieve – Episode 1 to shoot, edit and put out this music video in an hour and this was the result.

Modestep – Machines

Last but not least, Modestep the electronic/rock group two weeks before their album is released have dropped the video to “Machines” with zombie eyes and a very dark video to match the track. Their album London Road features Big Narstie, Flowdan, Frisco, Lay-Z, Discarda and production from the likes of Funtcase and Trolley Snatcha.

Pixies Tracks Of The Week @MajorB2DAL @Prez_T @pabbywabby @Wretch32 @Stormzy1 @ClubsandSpades1 @mrbennybanks @JoeBlackUK @Young_Spray @officialchip

Milli Major ft Prez T & Paper Pabs– Shut Down The Dance

‘Shut Down The Dance’ is like a hardcore grime rave tune and it will do what it says in the title when played in a rave/club! This is from Bloodline representative’s Milli Major, Prez T & Paper Pabs who are royalty in the Grime scene. This will be on Milli Major’s forthcoming EP ‘Bloods Thicker Than Water’ set for release 31st May and sees the finest talent on it from D Double E to Flirta D and producers such as Rude Kid and True Tiger.

The Stray Doggz ft Wretch 32 & Stormzy – Skank Out

To be honest I’d never heard of this producer duo before I got sent this track through and this is their debut single ‘Skank Out’ featuring two highly respected artists Wretch 32 & Stormzy. With the ‘woofs’ on the hook incorporated into the lyrics and two of the sickest MC’s at the moment on it, this trap led tune can only mean one thing, a straight up banger! It’s aggression and honesty makes me love it even more..

Clubs & Spades – Deal Or No Deal

‘Deal Or No Deal’ is the first track taken from newcomers Clubs & Spades forthcoming EP of the same name. They may be newcomers as a collective, but make no mistake each of them have been in the music game and had great careers in it already. They blend hip hop, punk and funk where the two producers use live instruments along with the MC’s rapping in their Northern accents which creates a unique sound. This track talks real life issues…

Benny Banks & Joe Black – Know Me From (remix)

Covering Stormzy’s hit track ‘Know Me From’, North London’s Benny Banks and Joe Black who have been in the rap game for quite some time now put their spin on it. They tackle the track with such finesse it’s like it was one of their own! They both are slick lyricists so we expect nothing but fire from them. The two have a joint mixtape dropping soon, which will show definitely bring a lot of heat to the music game this summer.

Young Spray ft Wretch 32 & Chip – Proud

North London MC’s Young Spray, Wretch 32 and Chip join together for new track ‘Proud’ which is a introspective track of how they grew up. It’s shows Wretch & Young Spray’s journey as they spit while Chip handles the hook, where they look back at their hard lives growing up, where they are at now and what it took to get there. It’s personable, heartfelt and deep and the kind of rap I like.

Pixies Tracks Of The Week @OfficialChip @NewhamGenerals @CadellOfficial @IsaiahDreads @Scrufizzer @Saskilla @DJCameo

All my tracks seem to be Grime ones this week, and I can assure you they are all worthy to be included. From the cheeky ‘Feeling Myself’ to war track ‘Hotline’ and feel good one ‘Foolish’ this is why I can say safely say all Grime isn’t the same, so don’t put it in a box again!

Chip ft Kano & Wretch 32– Feeling Myself

I have to start with this one ‘Feeling Myself’ from Chip as it’s a proper feel good, funky track that is a production you would associate more with a hip hop tune than a Grime one, but it sure sounds good. It features quick witted, sizzling and cheeky bars from Kano and Wretch 32 as the three show different can be good. This will be on Chip’s forthcoming EP ‘Believe & Achieve – Episode 1’ out on May 4th.

Newham Generals – Soundboi Killa

The Newham Generals have done it again with this future classic ‘Soundboi Killa’ produced by the bass don Toddla T. When you hear these three names you know it can only mean one thing…it’s Grime, with reggae influences, plenty of bass with computer game sounds. The best duo in Grime kill it and control the mic like the dons they are. Their EP ‘N To The Gs’ will be out very soon too!

Cadell – Hotline

Woahhhhh so it’s sending season, and Cadell really caught my attention with this one I had to add it as one of my tracks of the week. The East London MC goes in for a whole host of MC’s such as Stormzy, Maxsta, Jammer, Elf Kid, Stelf, Mez and more in this one shot taken video called ‘Hotline’. Mez has sent a reply which I’ve put the video to called ‘#64 Bars Of Air Pie’.

Isaiah Dreads ft C4 – Foolish

Let’s take it back now to some more bouncy, happier vibes with the 17-year old Grime MC from Dorset Isaiah Dreads. We heard the track on Soundcloud which seems to have gained co-signs from DJ’s Target, Cameo, Phil Taggart, Huw Stevens, Mistajam and more who have all pressed play on it. Produced by the go-to producer Preditah and featuring his brother C4, this is a more uplifting, melodic track showing off Isaiah’s fast paced flow.

Gunplay ft Rick Ross & Scrufizzer, Saskilla and Maxsta – Aiight

Last but certainly not least, a US to UK remix here with Gunplay ft Rick Ross’ track ‘Aiight’ being given a Grime remix with three very hard lyricists Scrufizzer, Saskilla and Maxsta all going in over the remix which Darq E Freaker provided for them. S/O DJ Cameo for putting this one together, I look forward to seeing more of this from them.

Krept & Konan (@kreptplaydirty @konanplaydirty) – Dont Waste My Time (REMIX) FT Chip (@officialchip), French Montana, Wretch 32 (@Wretch32), Chinx Drugz & Fekky (@FekkyOfficial) [Audio]

The Don’t Waste My Time official remix was premiered at Krept & Konans gig on the 28th December for their fans to hear first and it got the reaction it deserved. Now it has been unleashed to the public to hear and this really is what you call an allstar line up with some of the UK’s hardest rappers on it Chip, Wretch 32 and Fekky and from the US French Montana and Chinx Drugz.

MTV The Wrap Up: UK Rap Rundown [News]

The MOBO’s returned to Glasgow for their 18th year and we had some commendable winners. On Saturday we saw a duo that have kept a lot of people talking this year and had huge achievements winning best newcomers, well done to Krept & Konan for their award it was truly deserved. The best male award went to the Godfather of Grime, Wiley who this year dropped an album and too many tracks to name showing his incredible work rate. Best hip hop/grime went to Tinie Tempah who will be releasing his ‘Demonstration’ album very soon.

Speaking of Krept & Konan last week they dropped the video to one of their bangers off the ‘Young Kingz’ mixtape. ‘Young N Reckless’ features North London emcee Chip. They recently performed a sold out show in the 02 Islington Academy and have another nearly sold out show coming up in December.

Chip returned to LA to continue work on his third studio album. The first day he was back he put on Instagram a picture of himself with Busta Rhymes. Maybe we can expect collaboration there. Chip’s always kept himself in the public eye, whether it’s freestyles, his tracks, collaborations or through other paths he knows how to keep his name relevant. On Friday he showed us his take on Drake’s ‘Pound Cake’ telling people this is he is still growing as an artist and there is more to come.

S.A.S took it down a completely different route to what we normally hear from them as we were introduced to a new track from them ‘Better Than This’. The two brothers Mega and Mayhem took it down a dubstep route with the beat for this track. What do you think?

Lady Lykez made a quick return after her track which tore up the airways ‘I Love My Butt’. ‘Rosa Parks’ is the newest one from the fiery emcee who recently flew to Atlanta to perform at the AC3 Festival representing the Best British talent. She shows off her more cultured side to a woman who inspires her and shows off her skippy flow for this edgy track.

P Money dropped a banger last week titled ‘Round The Clock’. A hip-hop beat overlaid with metal comes from Loadstar, with P’s familiar voice giving a warning, “If you want it you can get it / But be careful when you get it”. As usual he rides the beat effortlessly in true P Money style.

Yellows ft Fuze BW – AP [Music Video]

Here’s a new one from the Alwayz Recording team home to rapper Chip. This one is from Yellows featuring Fuze BW titled AP and uses the instrumental from Vybz Kartel Weed Smokers Riddim. We can expect to hear more from the team soon.

MTV The Wrap Up: UK Rap Rundown [News]

I flew out to Ayia Napa in Cyprus on Monday afternoon for the Summer Love Festival presented by DJ Cameo. Held on Makronissos Beach on Tuesday, some of the biggest names in music performed including Tinie TempahG FrSHAngel, Fekky, Dot RottenScrufizzer and more. The festival was a great success and it’s always nice to attend one on the beach in the sun! I also hit the afterparty at Club Ice where Ms Dynamite performed…

Sneakbo has kept the visuals coming from his ‘Certified’ EP and yet again has come with a hard beat from Rvssian on ‘Trust Nobody’. He also proves why he is one of the finest rappers at the moment in the UK as he spits some honest and harsh truths.

Young Don released the first video to be taken from his forthcoming mixtape ‘The Weather Man 2’ over two weeks ago. The tape will be hosted by DJ Khaled who is quite a talked about man at the moment after his marriage proposal to Nicki Minaj. For this track Young Don is joined by rapper Smiler and singer Starboy Nathan in this classy visual where they are seen on a private jet sipping champagne for this nicely flowing track.

This week sees another remix of Migos’ ‘Versace’. This time it’s from a West London artist who is one to watch in the UK rap game. Shizzle shows why on this track reaffirming his status with clever wordplay and a relaxed flow.

Ghetts really shows a different side to him after his short hiatus from making music, slowing things down but still oozing passion for this spoken word introduction to his forthcoming project ‘Rebel With A Cause’. Mr J. Clarke takes us on a reflective journey of his life in this mature and poetical piece called ‘Definition Of A Rebel’.

Chip’s been floating around releasing a few freestyles and net video’s but nothing too serious. It’s good to hear he’s fully back on track and working on a new album in LA. Yesterday saw him put out the audio to new track ‘Holy Water’ which sees him looking back on his life, career and decisions he has made and also the future. His lyrical ability is as strong as ever in this track.

Chip x Naughty Boy – La La La (Remix) [Music Video]

Wow. Chip schools rappers on how to do a remix properly as he absolutely kills Naughty Boy‘s No.1 hit La La La with clever lyricism and flow.
