The Sounds of UK Rap @BiggHypes @AbraCadabra @lanceyfouxx @YoungsTeflon @MargsMT

Hypo ft. Suspect & Rich The Kid – ‘Buss It Down’

Hypo is one of the Kings of UK Rap. He is behind one of the founding crew’s Mashtown, and has now delivered us the visuals to his brand new epic single ‘Buss It Down’. It features two rappers from both sides of the pond: Suspect from South London and Rich The Kid from Queens, both respected rappers in their respective countries. The Beat Boss delivers the minimal trap production for this international link up, which brings together old school UK Rap flows with a trap sound that makes the track very flavoursome. Hypo is set to push the UK Rap sound to the point of no return. Look out for Mashtown’s album, also dropping this year featuring the original crew.

Abra Cadabra – ‘Stay’ ft. Danzey

North London artist Abra Cadabra hits us with another banger, ‘Stay’ featuring Danzey. The track’s beat is a lot smoother and melodic than what we’re used to from Abz, with his smooth, distinctive voice gliding over the beat, along with singer Danzey who provides a verse. Abra Cadabra is seen in a drop top Jeep cruising around his ends of Tottenham, representing the area he grew up in. The lyrics reflect the video well with him rapping, “I ain’t playin’ no games, no way, cos I’ve been trappin’ for the money all day,” whilst the video moves to a club which sees him, Danzey and his friends all having a good time and popping bottles.

Lancey Foux – Left Home

Following up from ‘Goat’, 21-year-old East London rapper Lancey Foux is making a name for himself with new track ‘Left Home’, produced by Nova. He’s been teasing this track since November, building up the anticipation and appetite for it with his fans. It’s an upbeat, infectious new track where Lancey talks about how he’s doing better and how he came home better than he left, amongst other things. This could very well be a big summer smash. Lancey has a lot of potential and is already turning the right heads…

Youngs Teflon – ‘Lifestyle’

One of the best UK rappers in the game, Youngs Teflon drops a brand new cold track ‘Lifestyle’ complete with some very colourful new visuals to boot. It’s a perfect summer track from the ever-creative and inventive artist, who flows about his lifestyle, women, music and more, even addressing why he has remained an independent artist: “They still wanna know why I ain’t got a deal, but the phone’s been booming yeah the line blown.” Tefs is seen with a nice swagger in bright shirts, gold chains and sunglasses in some shots that add to the flamboyance of his lyrics when he talks about money and stacking it up for his unborn children and mother, and bringing “it back to the gutter.”

Margs – Trenches

Margs is stating his position in this brand new lyric-heavy track ‘Trenches’, where he brings us some fully loaded punchlines. It’s an authoritative track with lines such as, “This rap game’s full of d******’s, that’s why I don’t wanna hear about gang. North South, East, West, everybody know about man.” The video matches the lyrics with some menacing looking friends of Margs – some clad with masks accompanying him at a pool club. We also see rapper Joe Black in the video too. He isn’t taking any prisoners with this track that’s for sure.

MTV The Wrap Up: UK Rap Rundown [News]

There were quite a few video and track releases last week. Let’s start with Political Peak, whose buzz has been massive already this year. ‘Get Lean’ is his latest video and the visuals are really slick, which sees Peak walking round South London rapping. This is only the beginning for the young rapper and shows off his ability…

People’s Army representative Logic asks a lot of questions in ‘Question Everything’, a song that made me re-evaluate a lot of things in life that we just accept as the truth. It’s a very deep track from the conscious rapper who makes us realise we are not as smart as we think sometimes.

MashTown’s Margs compares himself to football player ‘Rooney’ in his new track, showing off some of his skills on the pitch in the video too. It’s a clever track which sees him using skillful lyricism.

Carns Hill, one of UK rap’s finest producers, brought out the second installment to ‘OT’ – ‘OT2’. He released the video to the intro which sees Blade BrownYoungs Teflon and Mental K spitting some real life street bars in this hustler’s anthem. You can get the 18 track mixtape ‘OT2’ from iTunes now.

Rapper Fuze had some fantastic news last week after his track ‘Too Much Swagger’ dropped featuring Sneakbo, which is an extremely catchy track that would fit perfectly in a club. He then signed to Alwayz Recordings, the independent label responsible for some of the UK’s biggest talents such as Wretch 32 and Chip. I can guarantee there will be much more to expect from this rising rapper.

Rap duo Krept & Konan released with the video to their track ‘Numb (I Can’t Feel My Face)’ produced by Rymez (‘Heatwave’). This is definitely going to do well as a summer club anthem.

Ratlin’s ‘Crown Me’ mixtape was one that got a lot of people talking. ‘Back On My Bulls**t’ is one of the strongest tracks on the tape and Ratlin released the video featuring a hook from singer Vee.

Mic Righteous gave an outstanding and passionate performance on SB.TV’s new #3rdDegree series, and Mic is the first one on there. The Margate rapper stuns with this performance, but it’s no surprise as he always does.

S.A.S Mega and Mayhem along with two thirds of EurogangBigz and Skrilla Kid Villain took to Tim Westwood’s crib and absolutely killed the freestyle session. I think this is one of the best I have seen this year…

MTV Wrap Up: UK Rap Rundown [News]

Winter is officially here! The clocks have turned back and the weather last week was unbelievably cold. Myself and The Wrap Up’s editor Maz braved the cold on Monday for Clement Marfo + The Frontline’s show in Camden, where they were supported by Charlee Drew and Josh Kumra. The collective are known for their rowdy shows and this was one of the rowdiest I have been to yet! The audience got soaked as usual by Clements water throwing antics and there was a big moshpit before Clement tore off the ‘no stage diving’ sign and jumped off the stage…

On Wednesday night I was invited to Tzar’s listening party for his new joint project with VersA Beatz, ‘XO.VS’ at a luxury penthouse in Westminster. We were treated to drinks and a spectacular view as everyone including rappers BigzSmilerMega and Mayhem sat down and listened to the full-length project, which is an ode to the high life and true love for luxury possessions. The two are already working on a follow up to the project, so watch out for that.

Benny Banks warmed up for Pusha T last week, and although I wasn’t there, he performed his new track ‘Trouble’ which is currently floating about online.

The video to K. Koke’s first official single was released – and what a moment it was. The video was more like a mini movie, a tale of struggle which showed Koke’s ability to appeal to a more varied audience but without losing his authenticity. Rappers can learn a lesson from this, as he shows you don’t have to compromise who you are.

Steel Banglez got the first play of his new track ‘Wafey’ on DJ Target’s show last week; of course it featured Cashtastic who works with the East London producer on a lot of his own tracks. We also hear some bars from Margs.

Young Don and Fekky had a few releases last week. Young Don released the video to his collaboration with Fekky called ‘ Gwup Boyz’  from ‘The Weather Man’. The 13-track mixtape was released last week and features UK rap peers such as J Spades, SqueeksArd AdzSho Shallow and more. Fekky also dropped the video to ‘No Worries’ featuring Slic Vic – look out for it.

Political Peak released the video to ‘Times Have Changed’ featuring Tayong off his ‘Dreams 2 Reality’ mixtape that also came out last week. The 19-track free download includes features from DVSJaja Soze and Exo and is definitely worth a listen.

Until next Monday!
