Skeamer x Skore Beezy – Better Place

Skeamer and Skore Beezy take it to the streets of Clapham Junction, their respective hometowns, for ‘Better Place’ – a song dedicated to their friends lost to the roads. The mellow beat allows the two artists to open up and pay homage with Skeamer coming in first, “This shit gets deeper, Veli on my t-shirt, banging through my speaker.” It’s a deep, reflective track, but also one that looks to the future hoping for themselves and people around them to lead a better life, doing it for the friends they have lost. Skore Beezy raps, “Tryna do this shit for my dawg, get him a better place.” It’s emotional and it’s real.

 

Young Adz ft Dirtbike LB, Gabos, 9Goddy, K Trap & Abra Cadabra – Free Gutta Part II

It’s been 7 months since we heard the ‘3 Gutta Remix’ from South London artist Young Adz which featured Dirtbike, LB, Gabos, 9 Goddy and Domez, and now the ‘Free Gutta Part II’ has been released with two additional rappers K Trap and Abra Cadabra. They take it to the hood again for the dark visuals matched with menacing bars over an ominous, trap beat. Young Adz flows on his verse, “Kidnap kidnap, kidnap crew, don’t know about you but me and LB made the news,” whilst still handling the hook which the track ends on. It’s still one for the streets no doubt, with all the rappers trading cold bars.

 

Belly Squad – Like That

Belly Squad are the London trio from East and South London that are mixing UK rap with Afrobeat melodies so well that they are due to make a huge impact this year. Their raw sound can be found on their brand new track ‘Like That.’ It’s infectious and showcases their African and Caribbean heritage. The production has irresistible production along with catchy lyrics that inherit their London hometowns, “I told her don’t worry I’m a nice guy, chilling in the ends chicks wave when I pass by, yea she heard that I’m a fly guy, hitters in the Germans beep beep when they drive by.” ‘Like That’ can be found also on Belly Squad’s recently released ‘Banana’ E.P.

 

Pakman – Verified

Pakman has been going in hard this year with a few releases already under his belt in 2017. The video opens up on a shot of him walking through Hillside Garden Park in South West London, his hometown, to getting in a Mercedes showing a juxtaposition of his life which is also portrayed through his lyrics. “It’s deeper than rap, it’s real life. I’m the same little yout you saw in Hillside, difference is now I blow a bag when I feel like, so I ain’t signing shit unless the deals right.” His flow is laid-back but his delivery is strong as he spits real-life bars over a melancholy beat produced by 5ive Beatz.

 

Suspect & Youngs Teflon – WDYK

Two of South London’s hardest UK rap artists Suspect & Youngs Teflon unite for ‘WDYK’ an abbreviation for ‘What Do You Know.’ The two bring their coldest bars over a trap-heavy beat for a street banger. Suspect handles the catchy hook with ease and also comes in for the first verse, “Only the realest with us, these n****s they talk, but none of these n***s are stuff, might bring out the chalk, line these n****s all up.” Tefs comes in next, “What do they mean, we going gold in 2017, now I got dirty money and clean, it was all a dream, now it’s as real as the fiends.” Both their lyrics are flamboyant, which match the clean video complete with icy watches and cars. Suspect has also dropped his mixtape ‘Loading’ with features from Giggs, Gunna Dee and more.

 

Congratulation to Nines on the release of his album ‘One Foot Out’ which landed at No.4 on the national album charts in the UK with a reported 1.5 millions streams in 24 hours on Spotify and Apple Music. Nines also revealed in a vlog that he has a joint album on the way with Ice City Boyz comrade Skrapz which fans will definitely be excited about! Apparently it’s already been recorded, so we can expect that soon.

The Sounds of UK Rap: @ClueOfficial @ArdAdz @OfficialGiggs @Sneakbo @S_Wavey @SkeamberOJB @SkoreBeezy

Skeamer x Skore Beezy

Two of the OJB crew (Official Junction Crew) – that’s Clapham Junction for those of you who don’t know – link up for ‘Balance’. An Afrobeats-influenced instrumental sets the tone for their track, with the whole hood out with drinks in their hand for the video. Skeamer comes in first with lyrics about where he’s from, his upbringing and his struggle: “They wanna know my story, they want the beef they want the war they want the glory.”

Skore Beezy then steps up with strong, elevating bars coupled with his solid, passionate and perfectly executed delivery. The two then go back-to-back with their bars after the hook, complementing each other’s flows extremely well. This is how you make a collaborative UK Rap track.

Sneakbo and S Wavey

South London rappers Sneakbo and S Wavey give us one for the streets in their collaborative new track ‘Aigons’. The pair drop some heavy-duty bars over a powerful, marching, beat with Sneakbo repeatedly saying “gang” on the intro and outro, beginning his verse by talking about some real life situations, “Look at the life I’m living, went for the love of the money, I’m sinning. ain’t digging no L’s, I ain’t getting no sleep and winning from the beginning.” It’s directed at people who think he’s changed because of his fame, but this track proves he’s still bringing the heat to the underground as well as commercial landscape.

Giggs

The Landlord himself dropped the video to one of the more ‘party’ tracks from his latest album. The visuals certainly fit the track’s vibe with it being filmed at his own private party, with a bunch of women to keep himself – and Donae’o who features on the track – entertained. Giggs and Donae’o take over London’s arthouse North London cinema Screen On The Green, with Giggs at the entrance running the door and guests such as female rapper Stefflon Don. These two definitely know how to party and put together a very cheeky, rave-ready anthem.

Giggs announced his headline show at the 02 Forum Kentish Town on Friday 11th Nov and you can get tickets here

Clue

The first track we heard from Giggs’ Landlord album was ‘Whippin Excursion’ in July, which has since become a big anthem. South London’s Clue decided to take on the instrumental and re-fix it for ‘Gripping N Swerving’, spitting straight fire of his own, with fresh bars, and a fresh hook, whilst keeping Giggs’ adlibs present throughout the track.

It features Reepz (part of OJB) who comes through on his verse with a fierce and passionate execution that ends the track nicely. Clue’s own delivery and essence is laid-back with heated bars: “You ain’t a ganster, you just a gangsters version. My n****s wicked and bad, 67 man lurking, for a monkey I would tell my little n**** burst it.” Giggs gave the track his approval too, so if the Landlord did, it’s pretty certain that everyone else will follow suit!

Ard Adz

Ard Adz has a special way of bringing emotion to his words, like a true artist reaching out to his listeners. He brings an uplifting message for his new one ‘Worry Less, Smile More’ spitting thought-provoking bars over a harmonious, key-led beat and vocal hook. Adz talks us through some honest thoughts he has, coupled with his journey in life and what he wishes for the future, “sinning but I’m winning this s**t isn’t funny though, pray for me. If I told you that I’m coming would you wait for me? I hope the angels tell the Lord to hold the gates for me. I been on my grind but aint made it out this hood yet, my sons getting older can’t be following my footsteps.”

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.

.@Ratlin, @SkoreGoodfellaz, @Shak_Corleone & @MattMilla45 – Ain’t On Nuttin (G-Mix) [Music Video]

I know what you’re probably all thinking, another Ain’t On Nuttin remix, originally the track from Yungen ft Sneakbo on his Project Black & Red. This remix has to be the hardest remix I’ve heard with Ratlin, Skore Beezy, Shak Corelone & Matt Milla all giving a verse to this street anthem making it more grittier than before. Everyone went innnnn on this and it’s very difficult for me to say whose verse was the best, but personally (I’ll say it again personally) Skore Beezy killed it for me, although they all went in hard…

MTV The Wrap Up: UK Rap Rundown [News]

Last week The Wrap Up went to support the MTV Brand New nominees party at the Drury Club in London. Wretch 32 performed on the night with hits ‘Don’t Go’, ‘Blackout’ and more really getting the crowd really in the mood to party…

Kano
 is back and it’s good to hear new music from the talented MC after we’ve seen him acting in the second series of Top Boy. ‘Puppets and Strings’ looks at his career over the years, music industry and more, it’s clear he had a lot he wanted to tell people and get off his chest. The 6-minute track has a slow start but picks up and the last verse really shows off Kano’s lyrical skills.

Peak is someone who in the last part of this year has been keeping his name buzzing releasing freestyles, clever move as the ‘Str88 Ham’ mixtape will be out January from him, Syikes, FA andKerz. He dropped a Rated freestyle for GRM Daily last week and really impressed with his bars getting people ready for what’s to come.

Fem Fel recently dropped an EP ‘Left Of Centre’ after being quiet for a little while. The South London rapper takes it down a dubby route on the production that is quite dark for track ‘Massive’ with his flow riding the beat. The visuals are quite trippy and match the track near perfect.

Logic
 released the video to ‘More True Talk’ produced by Last Resort off the album of the same name. The conscious rapper talks us through a number of issues on this track and shows off different flows on this truthful track. If you like hearing hip-hop that stands for something with thoughtful bars check this out.

Skore Beezy released a video covering Wretch 32’s ‘Forgiveness’ in memory of Veli a friend and talented rapper who sadly passed away, and to mark the release of his mixtape ‘Beezy In Da Trap’. We hear verses from both Skore Beezy and Veli both are hugely talented rappers and Skore is one to watch out for in 2014, I can predict big things for him, download the mixtape now and you’ll understand why I say this.
