Pixies Tracks Of The Week @stefflondon @Skepta @officialdpower @bignarstie @BigTobzsf

Stefflon Don – 16 Shots

Stefflon Don drops another visual off her recently released highly-rated mixtape ‘Real Ting’. She heads to Jamaica to save her mother in the video self-directed by the Don herself alongside Luke Biggins. ’16 Shots’ showcases her Jamaican roots with a dancehall-style beat and patois tinged lyrics.

Skepta – No Security 

Skepta dropped this track last year on Halloween and now we get the slick new video to match the greazy track along with a brand new verse too. Skepta fires shots at his enemies whilst taking on different outfit changes and different visual shots going between him and his crew dancing in a room with plaques on the wall, Skeppy on a table with men clad in suits and much more. Check it out for yourself.

D Power ft. Footsie – Shelly

D Power and Footsie, two Grime scene veterans join for a track trading bars about being two of the scenes top spitters. D Power says, “‘Shelly’ is about having the hardest lyrics and being able to last ANY clash, but also having bars that can buss up a club! That’s our aim for this track right here.” Produced also by Footsie, the two take to derelict settings for the video which you can watch below.

Big Narstie – They Don’t Know ft. Xaviour

Brixton emcee Big Narstie shows off his softer side on his brand new single ‘They Don’t Know’ ft. Xaviour taken from his forthcoming album release this Summer. Grime’s unofficial king of comedy shows he really can get deep and bear his soul to us, which is different to the man we normally see also demonstrating his lyrical talent.

Big Tobz ft. Cadet, TE dness, Not3s – Addison Lee Remix

Not3s track ‘Addison Lee’ was so popular that three wicked rappers have decided to come together for a remix, continuing the heat on this track. Big Tobz, Cadet and TE dness join to throw down some fire, mischievous lyrics, mashing up this huge new remix.

Nines ft. J Hus – High Roller

North West London rapper Nines who recently has signed a deal with XL Records has just released the track listing for his long-awaited album ‘One Foot Out’, and I couldn’t be happier having been a fan of Nines for years. He dropped the tracklisting on his Instagram, which included some hot features such as Akala, Tiggs Da Author and more.

Before this though Nines unleashed his first visual taken from the album and the first single ‘High Roller’ ft. J Hus. It gives a glimpse into the lives of the artists from where they have come from to where they are now and are headed; from riding behind the wheels of flash cars to estates and fancy flats and dark streets, and getting fitted for suits.

Clue – Game Over

Clue’s work rate is mad and second to none right now, as he keeps dropping video after video. The distinctive-voiced, South London rapper has a message for anyone going up against him this year, it will be ‘Game Over.’ This is another one for the streets and sees him going hard over a sinister beat produced by 5ive & Mazza, fitting his menacing lyrics perfectly, “Don’t watch me watch the man on your shoulder. Keep your name out my mouth like an ulcer.” Clue’s flow is now perfected and he’s ready to take the UK Rap world by charge with his rawness and ability to tell real life stories through his lyrics. His forthcoming E.P ‘Return Of The Ghost’ (out in May) will hopefully catapult him into success which he deserves.

SeeJay100 ft. TE DNESS – Pretty Girls

SeeJay100 has been making quite a name for himself in the UK Rap scene with his run of bangers and working with the likes of highly-rated MC’s such as Cadet, Big Tobz, Bonkaz and Stormzy. Now he joins forces with one of the hottest underground rappers of the moment TE DNESS for ‘Pretty Girls.’ It’s a sharp, infectious track coupled with a catchy hook, with the two rappers spitting their way through about their love for females. This is just the start of 2017 for Seejay100 though as he already has his new single to follow up this track with, and I believe that he will be marking a mark this year.

Dave & J Hus – Samantha

Both these artists are representing the underground scene tremendously right now, and this collaboration proves why they are the UK’s brightest artists about at the moment. ‘Samantha’ shows off Dave’s skills not only as a lyrical don, but also on the keys on this melodic track produced by Jae5. The introduction to the video changes from cups of tea, to books, lights, a church, and to an estate, leaving the aesthesis to contrast yet coincide at the same time. It’s a cocky track from Dave and J Hus, but why shouldn’t it be? Dave raps, “We sent your man to the shop, what do you mean? He ain’t ever made it rain, your man is a fraud, your boyfriend’s living a lie, you’re kind of like Rachel Zane.” He’s definitely mixing gentlemen with gangster.

A2 – Lowest Key

Taken from his ‘More Sleep 2’ EP out on Dec 16, A2 keeps things popping with his brand new visuals to ‘Lowest Key’ taking us on quite a trippy journey as we enter into his world. As you press play you move between a hotel room, a train journey and him walking at night with bright lights ahead. The track itself is mysterious and moody and this is reflected in the dark visuals. The vibe is laid-back and hazy and switches between A2 signing and rapping, “You say you’re into energies and planets, I’m still tryna find a balance, and you think the solar systems got the answers. I can rule the world it ain’t a challenge, trust me baby I can manage.” The lyrics like the video leave us in a kind of meditative, surreal state.

Pixies Tracks Of The Week @RudeKidMusic @JCLARKE_GHETTS @ScorchersLife @splurgeboys @Fusion_IAS @Snow667 @BIGG61XXX

Rude Kid x Ghetts – Peng Tings

The dynamic duo of Grime producer Rude Kid and one of the best MC’s out of the UK join again for collaborative track ‘Peng Tings.’ Delivering a string-led bassline, with handclaps and an underlying vocals that takes ‘Peng Tings’ back to Ghetts banger ‘Sing For Me’ fused with their collaborative and recent track ‘One Take.’

Scorcher & Rocket – Maikon

This is the video track to be seen off of Scorcher and Splurgeboys new collaborative forthcoming EP. Splurgeboy’s Tee provides the production, whilst Rocket takes place on the mic along with Scorcher and they go back to back on verses.

Big 6ix ft. TE dness – Are You Mad

The 6 Figure Music camp dropped the audio to this over a month ago, and now we get the visuals to follow which are more like a movie. ‘Are You Mad’ brings a ghostly, trap beat with the two spitting fire street bars paired with solid, fierce deliveries.

Fusion ft. AJ Tracey & PK – Rudeboy RMX

East London Grime MC Fusion freshens up his track ‘Rudeboy’ with a remix featuring two hard London lyricists AJ Tracey and PK from YGG. The three go in hard over a beat produced by Fusion and Shizz McNaughty.

Snowy – Durt

 Nottingham’s Snowy delivers us a brand new cold track on his Soundcloud produced by Boogie Pro. ‘Durt’ sees him deliver some ferocious bars over a Asian influenced production that will get you skanking out when you hear it drop.

K Koke feat. Stefflon Don – ‘I’m Back Again’

North West London rapper K Koke made his return known to the UK rap game with his new track ‘I’m Back Again’, featuring a hook from one of the UK’s brightest talents, Stefflon Don. Despite his career being held back due to unfortunate circumstances, this talented lyricist is making sure nothing will stop him achieving his goals, and this track definitely reinforces that message. It’s a follow-up to the teaser track ‘Living Isn’t Found’ from Koke, which dropped a few days before, talking through social, political and personal issues. These two tracks definitely show us that he has had a lot to think about and is in a reflective state of mind, which will make his comeback stronger, as he is presenting issues that people can relate to. ‘I’m Back Again’ though is more personal for him as he raps about issues holding his music career back: “No nights off, I’m grinding like I’m supposed to fam, sliding from the sirens tryna find us in their police van.”

Kojey Radical – ‘Footsteps’

Kojey Radical delivers a stunning new visual for his track ‘Footsteps’, from his recently released EP 23 Winters. The dark video shows Kojey battling demons as he talks us through personal struggles, “I was out here trying to make a penny out this hardship,” whilst we see him with a bottle of Hennessey and clips of him in an emotional state. His delivery is also emotionally charged and full of passion as he talks us through a story of the music industry, his parents, and the struggles he sees around him personally. Kojey says of the track, “‘Footsteps’ is a visual depiction of what it’s like to battle with self-doubt within an industry designed to pigeon-hole and categorise. A struggle that becomes more apparent as I grow as an artist and as a thinker.” It’s a great blend of poetry and rap.

Big 6ix ft TE dness – ‘Are You Mad’

Big 6ix enlists another 6 Figure Music artist TE dness for ‘Are You Mad’, where the two spit fire over a hard, trap beat. Big 6ix has worked as an engineer on tracks for the likes of C Biz and Stormzy, and both artists have a reputation in the scene for delivering quality music. ‘Are You Mad’ brings a lulling, almost ghostly beat as the introduction, which turns into an ominous, trap beat as Big 6ix delivers confident, street bars with a solid, fierce delivery as he spits on the hook, “the realist is back, was a King in the trap, just to be a King in this rap, bruv are you made, Imma put this ting on the map.” TE dness switches his verse up with unique delivery, which stands out and shows TE is a step above the rest.

Adian Coker – ‘Krispy’

Adian Coker released his Connect EP on May 20th, but before it dropped he teased us with three out of the six tracks: ‘Aim’ ft Bluey Robinson, ‘Iyamide’s Son,’ and ‘Nothing New’. Now he brings us the visuals for ‘Krispy’. It’s a beast of a tune, with a heavy-footed bass that charges through the song, leading you to bop your head in time with the fast pace. Adian prowls through the track seemingly indifferent to his own ingenious lyrics, eloquent raps, and intelligent wordplay, proving he is in a lane of his own.

Don Strapzy – ‘War Ready’

South London artist Don Strapzy has been hitting us hard with a lot of music recently. His latest track and video, ‘War Ready’, features Strapzy coming for his title and is ready to do whatever it takes. He shows us some of his of his slick wordplay and hard hitting bars coupled with a strong delivery that matches the track’s theme. The visuals show Strapzy filmed behind bars and also some clips in the gym. He talks us through some personal real-life issues and his career, “I’m in the jungle look mr Jungle Book and I’m Shere Khan.”
