The Sounds Of UK Rap: @tweet_mist @MicRighteous @reekzmb @scribz6ix7even @SKEAMEROJB @ClueOfficial

Mist – ‘Ain’t The Same’

Birmingham rapper Mist really killed it with the video for his new track, ‘Ain’t The Same’. Filmed in Dubai, it shows Mist living life on a boat, being given gold chains by a Sheikh, driving sports cars, and generally living it up. It’s really setting the levels in all senses – production wise (s/o Steel Banglez), the video, and of course Mist’s bars. Mist has built up his credentials this past year and is stepping it up with every release. His ability to connect and tell his life through his bars is what has gained him many fans.

Ice City Boyz – ‘All Out’

Church Road’s Ice City Boyz have followed up ‘Pressure’ with brand new cut ‘All Out’. Each and every one of them goes in hard over the dark production, with twinkling keys prowling over the beat. They take it to the streets for the video, which shows them with bottles, and getting harassed by the feds. This is six minutes of straight heat from the crew, who are set to do some serious damage in the UK Rap scene.

Mic Righteous – ‘Honour Mic’

In the lead up to the release of his Dreamland album, Margate rapper Mic Righteous delivers another stellar visual from it. ‘Honour Mic’ shows Mic in a pensive frame of mind, delivering real bars with a passionate delivery, something he’s well known for. The haunting hip-hop beat allows him to flow with power and intelligence – taking us through different subject matters such as other rappers and the music industry. “Do what you can I do what I like, too many begs on too many hypes, too many threats when nobody dies, not enough fist fights too many knives, too many skets telling too many lies, too many too many times.” Mic kills it with his flow, switching it up from fast-paced bars to more relaxed ones, letting his passion shine through.

Reekz MB ft. LD – ‘No Face’

Reekz MB is joined by 67’s LD for hard new street banger ‘No Face’. The track fits them both perfectly because if you’re a fan of UK rap you will know they both cover their faces, with LD wearing a silver mask, and Reekz covering his with a black one.

The two masked, South London rappers discuss the police, beef, grinding and more. The video shows them with a whole crew out on the block at night. We even see some nuns running around, misbehaving with masks on and blowing up a car. Reekz shows off his wordplay with bars such as, “Man a turn thriller, Jackson, man hit him up like Pac did.” LD brings his hard flow to the end of the track: “I raise my mash on the streets and I’ve kicked mans head in with Reeks. I don’t know about peace, I’m a real chef, I pepper my beef.” These two know how to make a banger together.

Skeamer & Clue – ‘Run Up’

This is a heavy track straight out of South London courtesy of Skeamer and Clue who are representing the OJB crew. The streets at night are the perfect setting for this underground banger, where they both talk about the realities of their life, pagans, beef, and trapping. The ominous beat with its chime lurking throughout gives it a sinister and menacing feel, which gives way for their bars to match. Skeamer spits, “Love me or hate me, there still gonna rate me, death to the two face, death to the pagans, you can’t beef with the mandem.” Whilst Clue goes in, “Came to the block with Skeams, duck man down might burst them, I put n****s in check, check my scoreboard, deep in the trap you can tell it’s a trap when you walk on the floorboards.” The duo definitely need to keep making tracks together as this is straight fire!

The Sounds Of UK Rap @corleonegb @SectionBoyz_ @Official6ix7 @CadelOfficial @MDargg @SkoreBeezy @SKEAMEROJB @UncleFumez

I’m here to bring you some of the latest tracks and news from the world of UK Rap from the past two weeks. We’ve got some big tracks to talk about this week and a huge mixtape that I’ve mentioned in a previous column.

Section Boyz – ‘Dig Dat’

Section Boyz are undeniably the hottest UK rap crew right now. After their national #Sectioned Tour where they brought out Skepta and Drake at their London show, they are keeping things moving with a new track ‘Dig Dat’. The video captures the special moment, commemorating it. The production from Nana Rouges is crisp with a marching beat, setting the pace for each six of Section’s distinctive bars. It’s a clear indication of where Section Boyz are headed with their energy and bars, and that’s straight to the top.

Section Boyz have more tour dates at the beginning of April in Dublin, London, Edinburgh and Glasgow as well as some festivals including Wireless. Get your tickets here.

Corleone feat. Young Adz & Chelski Lauren – ‘On The Boss’

GB Records are home to some of the hardest UK rappers including Skeng, who also dropped a track with C Biz ‘In Ma City’ and Uncle Chunks. Let’s talk about one of their other artists Corleone, who dropped a brand new joint ‘On The Boss.’ It features D Block Europe artist Young Adz, who gives a different component to the track, and Chelski Lauren, whose vocals gives the hook smoothness. Corleone’s laid-back flow complements the production’s relaxed beat, and the track’s title pretty much explains what it’s about. “I’ve got sharper as I’ve grown, earnt my masters on the roads, I’ve nurtured all these youngers, I’m a father to the shows.”

67 (LD & Dimzy) – ’67k What Where!?’

In September 2015, 67 released their mixtape In Skengs We Trust – a strong 20-track mixtape that is available to buy on iTunes. We’ve received the visuals to match one of the tracks, ’67k What Where!?’, from two of the crew, LD & Dimzy. The two provide us with strong, hard bars and effortless flows over a looming, twinkling beat produced by a producer responsible for some of the best UK rap tunes, Carns Hill. It’s combined with a solid hook, capturing the track’s title. “Who are these youts, who are these braes, 67k what where, you can get left right there.” These guys are one to watch, take note.

Cadell feat. Giggs – ‘Coming Through’

The sound on Cadell’s new track is pretty hard to define. It’s a mixture of Grime and Rap, and definitely hard. With Giggs’ distinctive voice on the hook and a verse to match, he gives the track a laid-back element on the hook, switching it up on his verse. This combined with Cadell’s skippy flow makes the track a straight up banger. ‘Coming Through’ has some funny visuals to match and it’s certainly something different.

M Dargg, Skore Beezy & Skeamer – ‘Kobe’

Straight out of South London, M Dargg, Skore Beezy and Skeamer bring you the visuals to their collaborative track ‘Kobe’. A key-led intro brings the track into a rolling percussive beat, allowing M Dargg to ride it with his bars followed by Skore Beezy, whose flow is undeniably tight; last but not least, Skeamer provides the hook. ‘Kobe’ is a hood anthem and is one for the streets. A cold beat with colder lyrics, Beezy spits “swerve on man with 2 wheels, serve on bats with a few deals, birds in packs with 2 seals, how you swerve on yats with 2 bills.” Check it out below.

Fumez The Engineer

Fumez The Engineer is one of the most highly regarded studio engineers in the UK scene and his mixtape, where he collaborates with some of the biggest names in UK Rap and Grime, has made a lot of noise. Over the past couple of weeks he’s dropped more studio videos from the project. We’ve seen Cadet’s ‘Grime God’ drop, along with Joe Black’s ‘Back To The Music,’ Trapz’s ‘100%’, Benny Banks’ ‘Murder Freestyle’, and Ms Banks’ ‘Amazing.’ The mixtape itself was also released and made available to stream.
