MTV The Wrap Up: UK Rap Rundown [News]

Last week I was out in Los Angeles for the BET Awards with The Wrap Up’s editor. We were lucky enough to see Beyonce perform her first show on her North America Mrs Carter tour, before going to a BET kick-off party at Drai’s Nightclub on the rooftop of the W Hotel. We also attended an amazing BET after party hosted by Chris Brown, where we saw rapper Problem perform… 

We also spoke to many celebrities on the red carpet at the awards including Elijah Blake, Bridget Kelly, DJ Drama, French MontanaElephant Man, 2 Chainz and more as well as spotting Pharrell, Chris BrownKendrick Lemar and Jamie Foxx.

There have been a couple of notable mixtapes out this week. The first one comes from Church Road rapper Nines, who although is currently incarcerated, dropped ‘Gone Till November’ along with a video ‘Growing Up/ Back In The Day ’ on SB.TV’s channel. I’m pleased to see new material from the North West London rapper whose last mixtape ‘From Church Rd To Hollywood’ became an instant classic. Even if he is gone till November, this material is good enough to keep his fans satisfied until then, with personal and motivational tracks.

North London’s Young Spray has gained himself a high spot in the UK rap scene. Along with dropping strong projects consistently, his levels of hard content and lyricism have kept him a favourite in the UK rap game. ‘Hard To Kill Vol. 3’ is the latest offering and as ever, he delivers some hard hitting, powerful tracks just right for the streets.

Eurogang rappers Mega and Mayhem who make SAS have been keeping their flow of work consistent and last week dropped a slick video to track ‘I Am James Bond’ off their latest mixtape ‘Coming To America 2’.

Tinie Tempah has been abit quiet for a little while now and it’s been nearly three years since the release of his debut album ‘Disc-Overy’, meaning his fans will be pleased about the release of new material from his forthcoming album ‘Demonstration’. The East London rapper who has been doing extremely well worldwide is joined by 2 Chainz for the Diplo produced track called ‘Trampoline’.

Hailing from South London and in my opinion one of the best to come from there is DVS. He went back to BBC Radio 1Xtra to join Charlie Sloth for his Fire In The Booth freestyle show where he dropped some heavy weight bars, with subjects ranging from the roads to females. He is releasing a mixtape ‘London Boy, American Dreaming’ soon, so watch out for that.

Another favourite from South of the river in London is Sneakbo who has always managed to keep his work rate rolling. His latest summer club smash ‘Ring A Ling’ was released yesterday (July 7) and he has already given us a behind-the-scenes clip of his new video ‘I Don’t Trust Nobody’. Sneakbo again has come through with another strong certified street track.

MTV Wrap Up – UK Rap Rundown [News]

Spit TV brought to you by We Hustle TV re-launched last Sunday on Channel AKA – it began about ten years ago on Channel U, before the days of Youtube and Twitter. This is where the best emcess from the UK are invited to spit for around three minutes. Ras Kwame the host described it as ‘one take, one mic, one spit’. Link-Up TV released a behind-the-scenes video along with the visuals for the Eurogang and Frisco freestyles. Look forward to seeing the likes of Benny BanksJoe BlackGekoGriminalScrufizzerCoops and many more…

An array of some of the hottest UK grime and rap emcees come together for the remix of Lethal Bizzle’s ‘They Got It Wrong’ originally featuring WileyKrept & KonanKano and Squeeksjumped on the remix to make it an all-star cast.

Another remix to drop last week was Sneakbo’s ‘Ring A Ling’ which saw Wiley and Krept & Konan give the Brixton rapper some heavy-duty verses on his next summer club banger. Expect to see a video for this one soon, as the track is released in July.

Young Spray reminds people that Northstar are originals in new track ‘Pull Your Pants Up’. “Only saw So Solid’s before the North Star Chain, only knew PDC when North Chain came. I saw the best come and go; the rest are dumb and slow.” He also shows respect to GiggsBlade Brown and Asher D in the track.

Shak Corleone released the video to ‘Voice Of The Streets’ from his latest mixtape ‘Purgatory’. The Brixton rapper keeps it 100% road rap with the track featuring Lil Torment, Skore Beezy and Don Slice who all spit hard street bars.

PW is definitely a rapper who has a lot of heat surrounding him right now with a lot of co-signs from DappyCover Drive and The Saturdays. His latest release ‘From PW With Love’ was well received and last week saw him drop the visuals to featured track ‘Here With You’.

UK rap veteran Mike GLC was the next up on SB.TV for his 3rd Degree freestyle. He spits over some classic joints with his effortless flow, showing people how it’s done.

Benny Banks gave us the visuals to track ‘48 Freestyle 1&2’ off his new mixtape ‘Patiently Waiting Vol 2’ which is available to download for free. The two laid back instrumentals allow for Benny to drop his classic relaxed flows which he is known for.
