The Sounds Of UK Rap

Hardy Caprio ft. Not3s – Together

Hardy Caprio and Not3s have joined forces for ‘Together’, with Not3s bringing a heavy, catchy hook. The track, produced by N2theA, allows Hardy to flow effortlessly over the rap beat talking about money and street life. The video – shot in an estate – shows how it hasn’t exactly gone to plan, as they had to shoot without Not3s. The guys made it lighthearted with a script running through it that definitely makes you chuckle and includes some fun dance moves too! The track is taken from Hardy Caprio’s recently released The Hollywood EP which you can buy now on iTunes.

Don Strapzy – Mustard

Lewisham rapper Don Strapzy returns to our screens with ‘Mustard’ – a track full of bars on bars. Intro’ing the track stating, “I never did it for the fame G, I can’t complain now I get loving from the ladies, but I never done it for that,” the OG rapper then goes on to talk about everything from rappers to trappers to the hood, South London, trust, women and much much more. He shows off his powerful, natural flow with strong delivery coupled with braggadocious lyrics, “It’s donny from the manor I’m the dogs bollocks.”

Pep ft. Big Sneakz – One Time

Pep takes the cinematic visuals for ‘One Time’ to the stunning location of the Dominican Republic. The stunning backdrop seamlessly flatters Pep’s individual flow alongside Big Sneakz’s catchy hook. Opening up with a meeting taking place between Pep and an associate then leads into the track that talks through Pep’s situations with women. Self-produced by Pep himself, he brings a summer vibe to the steelpan instrumental.

Dims x Tremz – Bang For My Bros

It’s a Northern link up next in ‘Bang For My Bro’s with two equally hard rappers: Dims from Manchester and Tremz from Liverpool. The video fits the ominous mood of the track, with men clad in balaclavas and masks setting the scene. The trap beat allows the two to apply their inimitable melodic style rap which Dims uses on the hook as well as in his verse and Tremz uses in his verse too. Dims has a strong, aggressive delivery, where he talks about street life. Tremz comes in second rapping, “Way back I been a rowdy yout, cause I never knew the other way, so don’t ask me what the f**k I do.” This is Northern talent at its finest.

Potter Payper x Luey Locs – Last 32

Potter Payper is one of the best UK rappers; his wordplay, lyrics and flow are just impeccable. At the moment he’s gearing up to release a brand new project titled ‘Real Back In Style’ which we are hugely looking forward to. His new banger ‘Last 32’ with Luey Locs shows the two barring about their lifestyles, which include chasing paper, expensive tastes in watches and cars, smoking and more which the video portrays perfectly showing off some flashy cars, nice creps, women and icey watches. Watch out for more from Potter Payper in the forthcoming months.

MTV The Wrap UK: UK Rap Rundown [News]


Last spring saw Coops release his debut mixtape ‘What Do You See’ and become Choice FM’s (now Capital Xtra) ‘breakthrough act 2013’, allowing him to open for Nas. This year he is set to release his ‘Lost Soul’ mixtape on June 2 and recently dropped its second single ‘Blessings’ which was co-signed by Vibe Magazine. He brings an old school feel to this hip-hop track that sounds like it could come straight out of New York as he showcases his immense lyrical ability, referencing J Cole  and Kendrick. The video shows the ‘gritty’ surroundings of his hometown in North London where he is from, giving the realities of his world.

East London lyricist Pepstar brings a hint of reggae to new track ‘OHYH’ as he brings it in with Sizzla’s ‘Solid As A Rock’ with the lyrics, ‘You can’t keep a good man down’ – this relating to the rest of the track with the theme of life challenges and how we respond to them. The harsh beat matches the stark black and white electric video rather well. Pepstar will be releasing his new EP on May 22 which is called ‘Dark Days Bright Nights’ which this track is set to be on. He is due to perform at the Houses of Parliament soon too… exciting times ahead for him.

Stormzy is an artist I’ve had my eye on, and last week he dropped his ‘Wicked Skeng Man’ freestyle which gained him fans in Skepta, Krept, JME and more. He has shown how diverse he can be with laid back tracks such as ‘All That Matterz’ and this one showing how his lyrical ability is first class.

Yellows is part of the Alwayz Recording crew, home to Chip, Paigey Cakey, G Money, Dotstar and more. His name has been a firm fixture in the underground scene for a little while and his work rate is strong, having already released two mixtapes, an EP and an online series. His latest release ‘Together’ features a verse from Shalo (also part of AR) and the title embodies the message of the track, about team work and supporting each other. This track really allows Yellows to show us his different flows as he starts off with a nice laid back one with the beat kicking in then switching it up showcasing his variety and skill.
