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.

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…

North London rapper Chip was happy last week as mixtape site DatPiff gave his ‘London Boy’ mixtape a gold certification. He tweeted “#LondonBoy GOOOLD on @datpiff. That’s sick to know 100,000 people on one website checked out my music. Thanks to everyone for supporting.” The mixtape, which featured Grand Hustle members T.I , B.o.B and Iggy Azalea, has put Chip in an extremely good position for the future…

Sway got everyone talking last week as he dropped the video to his latest track ‘Still Sway and Kane’. Sampling Dr Dre’s ‘Still Dre’, he definitely impressed a lot of people with the track, which featured Kano and Tigger da Author.

Sho Shallow and Ard Adz have kept the consistency flowing as they released another video last week from their ‘#Ghetto’ EP, which is out soon. ‘Windy’ shows the two rapping about certain sacrifices.

Chiba dropped an old school Fekky freestyle, proving why he is one of the hottest rappers around with some timeless bars.

It was his 21st birthday last week which is cause for a huge celebration, but as well as that Yungen decided to drop a net video entitled ‘21’. This guy doesn’t seem to rest, even on his birthday.

There have been two mixtapes last week that caught my attention….

North west London’s Naf Skrilla has been a name on a lot of people’s lips for over 10 years now. After much anticipation he has released his latest mixtape ‘Doely’ as a free offering, with 22 solid tracks. Riddled with stories, this tape will keep the streets on their toes as he brings back raw and authentic rap.

S.A.S dropped the B Side to their ‘Coming To America II’ mixtape with guest features from Nicki MinajItsNateBigzMclean and more. Hosted by Big Mike, DJ Allure and DJ Snips, the 13-track tape shows why Mega and Mayhem have been a staple part of the UK rap game for years and will continue to be.

On Tuesday I went down to Music Is My Drug, a live music showcase which takes place weekly in east London. Blizzard and Lady Lykez were two rappers performing on the night; they received the biggest reception from the audience, who seemed to really take to them. Lykez came on before Blizzard who was last – they had brilliant stage presence and got people moving…

Dappy and his on-off girlfriend have been at it again on twitter; Dappy is currently on tour across the country and his partner seems to think he’s been having too much fun with his groupies.

“Why don’t you just f**k off with your groupies and seriously leave me alone. Ur sad as F**k…” she tweeted. She also threatened to ‘Do a Rob Kardashian’, then hacked his Twitter with some very crude and vulgar tweets.

S.A.S aka Mega and Mayhem dropped their new mixtape ‘Coming To America II’ last week along with the visuals to the track ‘Drug Flow’. Hosted By Big Mike, DJ Snips & DJ Allure, it was only right that they had a follow up to ‘Coming To America’ which really got them heard during their Dipset days.

As Ratlin geared up for the release of his mixtape ‘Crown Me’, putting out a video on Friday for the track ‘Crunch Time’ featuring his brother Shak Corelone. ‘Crown Me’ is out today and you can download it from GRM Daily.

Haze was joined by Sincere and Ghetts as he drops the visuals to ‘Where I’m From’ which is taken from his recently released mixtape ‘Loyalty, Honour, Respect’ and sees him take us on a tour of London.

SN1’s Giggs and Waka Flocka Flame took to the studio again whilst Waka was over in London for their second collaboration ‘Lemme Get Dat’. SB.TV popped down and got some visuals for the Bayoz Music produced track.

Joe Grind had something interesting for us this week as last night he released the inventive visual to ‘I’m The S**t!!!’ showing clips of his fans who filmed themselves for the video.

Yungen picks up a bottle and drowns his sorrows in ‘Off The Record’, produced by Steel Banglez. This is interesting material, as he raps about the bad times he’s been through for the first three minutes before singer Ari takes over for the remaining two minutes.

S.A.S – Drug Flow [Music Video]

Heavyweight UK artists SAS release the video for Drug Flow, the second track from their highly anticipated mixtape Coming to America II. Produced by The Last Skeptik, Drug Flow follows on from the first single from the tape, Suave Life Remix. The catchy sample of A$AP Rocky’s Peso worked into the hook of Drug Flow provides a keen transatlantic narrative.
