MTV The Wrap Up: UK Rap Rundown [News]

Fire In The Booth has really been on fire last week where we heard two epic freestyles. First up was from OGz representative P Money who is set to clash Big H in the forthcoming clash series Lord Of The Mics, who he aimed some exclusive, fresh war bars at. The beats were courtesy of Swifta Beater and Preditah.

One of the UK’s most famed rappers Tinie Tempah was the second one this week to go on the show showing why he climbed to the top and that he can really spit flames silencing a lot of people and getting some stuff off of his chest. He used a few instrumentals including Pusha T’s ‘Numbers On The Boards’, Drake’s ‘Pound Cake’ and Krept & Konan’s ‘Don’t Waste My Time’.  Make sure you check both of these out.

It was good to hear a new track from Manchester lyricist Rio who collaborated with producer Rymez who is behind a few of Wiley’s hit records and talented singer/songwriter L Marshall who always does justice to a track. I’m really feeling this on so make sure you go and have a listen to ‘Hideout’.

An East London rising rapper Shockers is joined by two heavyweights in the scene Ghetts and Joe Black who collaborate with him on ‘Bally On’ a track off his recently released mixtape ‘Shocktown’ which featured other respected names such as Squeeks and Young Marv. With these co-signs it will help strengthen his name in the scene.

D Dark has been around for a little while now and this year I think he’s really going to turn a lot of heads as I can see him experimenting more and a lot more hunger. Take note of his new one ‘F*** About’ which will lead him into his forthcoming big single due to drop soon.

For me Mynature is one of the most honest and best lyricists in the UK at present. His first track of the year ‘Spin Em’ cements this as he shows off his incredible flow, switching it up midway to an old skool jungle one effortlessly and back again. His content is very real and thought provoking, with a confidence on this tune that one that no other rapper can touch him.

MTV The Wrap Up: UK Rap Rundown [News]

There was very sad news last week that the young and talented emcee Depzman aged 18 was killed outside a nightclub in Birmingham. He was at the venue because of an event honouring another knife victim Kyle Sheehan who was stabbed to death last year.

A lot of people were stunned and deeply saddened by the news about the murder of the Invasion Crew MC with Skepta saying “So full of life, so hype, he could never be in a room and you not know he’s there, SICK MC, overly loved and looked out for his people Heavy black heartHeavy black heartHeavy black heart” and fellow Invasion Crew member Jaykae “I can’t stop crying I jus wanna wake up and wish this is all a dream I love you so much ‪@DepzmanInvasion.” Two men have reportedly handed themselves in to the police. RIP.

There were two fantastic Fire In The Booth’s that came out last week. The first one comes from one of the most on fire emcee’s in the game right now, Lady Lykez. She goes in so hard, showcasing her multi-dimensional flow and lyrics proving why she is one to keep an eye on.

The second one came from The Movement consisting of Ghetts, Scorcher, Wretch 32 and Mercston who reunited after years. Unfortunately there was no Devlin to be seen but it was good to see them back together again after six years. They took it old school with their bars and flow think Wretch in Combination Chain Gang.

GekoUSG’s youngest in charge released his first official single ‘Heartless’ last week, which went to no.12 in the iTunes chart. He dropped the video the next day and it landed on respected American hip-hop site HipHopDX, proving that good UK rap can be embraced by the US. ‘Heartless’ is a love story but not quite a nice one as it tells the story of the woman with a broken heart.

Squeeks kept things moving last week as he released the video to ‘My Scars’ produced by Westy, taken off his recently released huge 40-track mixtape ‘Presidental Musiq’. Squeeks shows off his gentle side in this one for his main squeeze.

Speaking of Squeeks since his falling out with Benny Banks that became public knowledge, there may be a collaboration between him and K Koke on the cards after he tweeted “RT IF YOU WANA SEE ME DO A TUNE WITH ‪@KokeUSG”.
