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.”

MTV The Wrap Up: UK Rap Rundown [News]

The MOBO’s returned to Glasgow for their 18th year and we had some commendable winners. On Saturday we saw a duo that have kept a lot of people talking this year and had huge achievements winning best newcomers, well done to Krept & Konan for their award it was truly deserved. The best male award went to the Godfather of Grime, Wiley who this year dropped an album and too many tracks to name showing his incredible work rate. Best hip hop/grime went to Tinie Tempah who will be releasing his ‘Demonstration’ album very soon.

Speaking of Krept & Konan last week they dropped the video to one of their bangers off the ‘Young Kingz’ mixtape. ‘Young N Reckless’ features North London emcee Chip. They recently performed a sold out show in the 02 Islington Academy and have another nearly sold out show coming up in December.

Chip returned to LA to continue work on his third studio album. The first day he was back he put on Instagram a picture of himself with Busta Rhymes. Maybe we can expect collaboration there. Chip’s always kept himself in the public eye, whether it’s freestyles, his tracks, collaborations or through other paths he knows how to keep his name relevant. On Friday he showed us his take on Drake’s ‘Pound Cake’ telling people this is he is still growing as an artist and there is more to come.

S.A.S took it down a completely different route to what we normally hear from them as we were introduced to a new track from them ‘Better Than This’. The two brothers Mega and Mayhem took it down a dubstep route with the beat for this track. What do you think?

Lady Lykez made a quick return after her track which tore up the airways ‘I Love My Butt’. ‘Rosa Parks’ is the newest one from the fiery emcee who recently flew to Atlanta to perform at the AC3 Festival representing the Best British talent. She shows off her more cultured side to a woman who inspires her and shows off her skippy flow for this edgy track.

P Money dropped a banger last week titled ‘Round The Clock’. A hip-hop beat overlaid with metal comes from Loadstar, with P’s familiar voice giving a warning, “If you want it you can get it / But be careful when you get it”. As usual he rides the beat effortlessly in true P Money style.
