MTV The Wrap Up: UK Rap Rundown [News]

There has been an influx of good videos and tracks out over the past week that are of a high standard of quality, which is great to see.

Ghetts’ name was everywhere last week after his ‘Rebel With A Cause’ album dropped and he made his official chart debut. The east London MC has been causing a stir with his campaign, with a pop up free gig in Barbican and his headline show at the 02 in London on Friday. Congratulations to Ghetts on this achievement; it’s been brilliant to see an independent artist who doesn’t have to compromise his music.

Political Peak’s EP ‘Life’s Peak’ was released on iTunes on March 4, which featured seven strong tracks from the Brixton bred rapper. ‘Walk Alone’ was the newest visual to be seen from it since it was released, where Peak asks you to take in the story before he begins the track, talking us some real life situations.

As we know Giggs is one of the most rated rappers in the UK who made a name for himself with his unique style of rap and raw, authentic lyrics. His album ‘When Will It Stop’ was released last year, and last week saw the release of his track ‘Tick Tock’ taken from there produced by Bayoz Muzik.

Colours Miyagi is regarded as one of the pioneers in the UK rap scene, releasing tracks that will stay classics for many. The Peckham rappers previously released mixtape ‘Where’s My Money Reloaded’ which was released last summer was well received. He keeps thing flowing with a new track ‘Through My Lens’, a street banger showcasing his effortless flow and storytelling ability.

Youngs Teflon is another one that is up there with the best of them and he is due to release his 20-track project at the end of the month titled ‘Renaissance’. He gives us a taster of what to expect from the forthcoming tape by releasing a video taken from there called ‘Throwback’.

Friday night some of The Wrap Up team headed down to Plan B in Brixton for Grime veteran’s Footsie’s launch party for his ‘King Original 3’ project. The night saw P Money, Big Narstie, Jammer, Big Shizz, and D Double E all touch the mic for a brilliant night. If you missed it, you certainly missed out.

Talking of Newham Generals, D Double E went to the 1Xtra studio for his Fire In The Booth. He shows his versatility in content and flow, going for a laid-back beat talking relationship and break ups to a darker beat for some war talk. Make sure you check it out and understand why he is one of the best.

Political Peak gave us a little bit more of a teaser of what to expect from his ‘Life’s Peak’ EP. The highly-rated Brixton rapper gets us on his vibe and wanting to be ‘Living Life’ more on his wavy track, mixing in some classic DJ Luck and MC Neat’s ‘A Little Bit Of Luck’ at the end.

This video caused a stir last week when it was released, and for a reason too. The official remix video to ‘Don’t Waste My Time’ from unstoppable duo Krept & Konan featuring Chip, French Montana, Wretch 32, Chinx Drugz and Fekky dropped, which saw the two in New York and Thornton Heath in South London. This is going to be a classic for years to come.

Lastly English Frank is keeping his run of videos going by releasing another video from his forthcoming project ‘Frankenstein’, out March 24. ‘Defining Moment’ sees the South London MC team up with Aydoe Soul for this hard-hitting, thought provoking and candid track.

DVS has taken over this week again releasing two videos from his mixtape ‘London Boy American Dreaming’ which went to No.1 in the iTunes hip-hop charts and No.4 in the overall iTunes charts. DVS is one of the UK’s most acclaimed UK rappers, and this mixtape is set to become a classic.

‘The Intro’ was the first video released last week where he tells stories of his life, thoughts and dreams. For the second video release of last week he turned it up and dropped a more upbeat track featuring king of the clubs Sneakbo and Disturbing London’s G FrSH for a motivational talking track with all of them providing a solid verse each.

I’m really looking forward to the release of Peak’s EP ‘Life’s Peak’, which is out on March 4 via iTunes. He shows us what we are due to expect from it as he put out the video to ‘About That Life’ which is the first track to be heard from the project and sees Peak at his finest, doing what he does best, hitting us with some truthful, hard-hitting bars.

The Triple Darkness collective showcase UK hip-hop at its best with intense verses from Black Prophet, Tesia’a Ghost, Ray Vendetta, Ringz of Saturn, Iron Braydz, Cyrus Malachi and Solar Black for their new cut ‘Reanimation’ with perfect visuals to match the dark track. Triple Darkness aim to encourage the youth of today with their lyrics, so listen and learn.

Negash Ali is really one to watch out for this year, with Capital Xtra naming him their ‘New Breakthrough Act’. He has opened for NasDamian MarleyWiz Khalifa and more. He’s due to release his EP ‘The African Dream’ this month on February 17 and recently hit us with the visuals for his lead single ‘Fire In The Sky’.

Cashtastic’s highly-anticipated EP ‘Alarm Clock’ was released yesterday on iTunes and ahead of that to keep people looking forward to it, he released the video to the remix of ‘In The Party’ where he is joined by Stylo G to give it that dancehall feel. Make sure you get ‘Alarm Clock’ now!

Bigz is bringing the sunshine to winter as he lifts us up with new track ‘The Ride Continues’ filled with soul as J Warner sings the hook giving his own version of ‘Gin And Juice’ and Giggs hits us with a nice, laid-back verse with effortless swag. Loving this track.
