Pixies Tracks Of The Week @JorjaSmith @LethalBizzle @ThisIsAngel @LittleTorment @iamSaintP @TheReal_PK @Lyrical_Strally @StickyBloodUK

Jorja Smith – Blue Lights

There has been a vastly notable spread of impressive female vocalist emerging recently and Jorja Smith is one to add to them. The 18 year old singer released the visuals to her debut single ‘Blue Lights’ and has set the internet alight with this stunning track and her enthralling vocals. She sings in ‘Blue Lights’ about what she sees going on around her, sampling Dizzee Rascal’s ‘Sirens’ a song she describe as “the beginning of my journey,” she then tells the person she’s talking about to run.

Lethal Bizzle ft. JME & Face – BOX

Lethal Bizzle is back with another Diztortion production and enlists one of his old Fire Camp members Face & Boy Better Know’s JME for his hot new single BOX, which is set to top the charts. The video set in a boxing gym has a comical side and makes it fun to watch. It also matches the video’s energy and theme to the track. You can see this is going to be an anthem for the workouts, summertime and festivals.

Angel ft. Haile – Rudeboy

Angel is kicking off 2016 by reminding us he’s still a ‘Rudeboy’ with his brand new single featuring WSTRN’s Haile who lends him accompanying vocals to the hook. It’s great to see Angel back and fresh with a nice new banger that we are going to be hearing a lot of on the radio and clubs. He’s been in the States working with Grammy award winning producer Swizz Beats among others, and we’re likely to see his debut album drop this year too.

Little Torment – So Many Nights

We haven’t heard too much of the South London rapper Little Torment recently, so it’s good to see some new visuals from him. ‘So Many Nights’ comes from Fumez The Engineer’s forthcoming ‘The Mix-tape’ which drops on March 13th and sees other UK artists on it such as Cadet, MS Banks, Joe Black and many more. Torment takes a old skool sounding beat wrapped with a soulful melody in a studio video.

YGG – Don’t Talk Like That

YGG follow up their debut single ‘Okay’ with this banger ‘Don’t Like That’ with Empra on the production. The North West London Grime trio made up of Lyrical Strally, PK & Saint P drop some sizzling bars infused with wordplay. This track is harder than the previous one and will definitely be turning heads and get people skanking out on the dancefloor.

Sticky Blood ft. Snowy & Yxngz – Garn Again

Sticky Blood are the unstoppable duo from Sheffield who are literally putting out release after release and their newest one ‘Garn Again’ is a straight up riddim. With meaty punchlines from Snowy who gives nods to the Grime scenes Godfathers and Yxngz who offers an harmonious hook and slips into the role of an MC adding a verse at the end, it’s a R&G track you’ll not want to stop playing.

MTV The Wrap Up: UK Rap Rundown [News]

Last week The Wrap Up headed down to the Fedz movie premiere at the Genesis Cinema in East London. The independent British film based on a policeman who resigns from the force after suspicions of corruption, instead investigates a terrorist group who have released a virus. The film has recognizable faces including Dexter Fletcher and Ashley Walters and the soundtrack is pure UK hip hop featuring music from Squingy, K Koke, DVS, J Spades, Ex, Joe Black, Logic and many more. The afterparty saw live performances from the USG team also joining them were South London’s Sho Shallow and Ard Adz.

Speaking of USG, they were in the studio last night with StayFresh. This joining of the West Midlands grime collective with the North West London rap collective means we will be hearing something epic very soon. Despa from the Stayfresh crew last night tweeted “That studio session was h’immense big up @kkokeusg @SquingyUSG the rest of USG & all my @stayfreshtweets homies.”

Peak has been a bit quiet recently, I hope this is because he’s been hard at work in the studio creating something good for us. Last week he dropped a ‘Penthouse’ freestyle video showing why he has a lot of potential to go far. Make sure you check that out.

Peak also dropped a ‘Pound Cake’ freestyle for the Rap City Back2Rap freestyle series. They talk about everything from the music scene to women telling truths in their bars.

Another South London collective STP released the video ‘Bout To Blow’. This one comes from Mitch featuring Leaanneah Lauren and Windy Music’s Sho Shallow as they spit some inspirational bars and how they’ll keep going to reach their dreams. This track can be found on The STP 2 mixtape available for free download.

Moving over to North London, Islington we saw three artists from there drop a track a together.Face and Squeeks provided the bars for ‘They Think We Made It’ joined by Frostie who delivered the hook. The track is produced by Westy and Weezy Brown.

If you haven’t already make sure you go and buy Dru Blu’s street album ‘Double Or Nothing’. On a recent interview he explained the name behind it.

“Everyone knows me as Don Strapzy Don Dru Blu everyone calls me Donny anyway so D.O.N just gave it an acronym.. ‘Double Or Nothing’ that’s how we live anyway. We put everything into this so it’s either doubling it or man’s lost everything.”
