Pixies Tracks Of The Week @izzieGibbs @donaeo @oppsnextdoor @LethalBizzle @ReekoSqueeze @YellowsUk

Izzie Gibbs ft. Donae’O – Chillin

Dice Recording artist Izzie Gibbs gives us another straight-fire riddim ‘Chillin’ produced by Maniac which features Donae’o on the hook. The track and visuals show how they like to Netflix and Chill with Izzie’s flow fast and manic and his lyrics a bit naughty. Izzie told SBTV, “Maniac blessed me with the fire riddim I knew it was SICK but when I sent it to Donae’O and he sent the chorus back in like 20 mins, that fully gassed me and I banged it out straight away.”

Tizzy Gang – Old School Roadman Jacket

Tizzy Gang’s Tre Mission and Merky Ace release the first visual off of their forthcoming mixtape, ‘Opps Next Door’. The record represents the transatlantic spread of grime with Tre Mission also being hailed as the first international grime emcee. Both emcees lay down greezy lyrics over a sinister beat that is sure to get a wheel up in every grime rave.

Lethal Bizzle ft. Skepta – I Win

 Although there has been a delay with Lethal Bizzle’s album ‘Lennox Rd,’ Bizzle is hitting us with an EP, ‘You’ll Never Make A Million From Grime,’ a title aimed at the haters. He gives us the first visual from the EP that features another grime king, Skepta who also produced the track along with adding a verse and hook. The two heavyweights of course have made a winning track and the video comes complete with some sick cars and bikes.

Reeko Squeeze ft. Donae’o – Beginning

A cold, cold tune track from Reeko Squeeze which features Donae’o who comes in first on the track with the hook which is a rather inspiring one talking about how he’s in it to win it! Reeko then comes in with some his inspirational bars and also mischievous lyrics about women. The visuals show both of them at night with views of London in the background.

Yellows – Cure Remix

North London rapper Yellows takes Fish Go Deep ‘The Cure & The Cause’ track remixing it for his track ‘Cure Remix.’ He talks about road life, stacking money and the video shows him and his girl arguing and her being at home trying to get hold of him and him locking calls off. This is a hard track with a very good remix of a house track that Yellows has absolutely killed. Props.

Pixies Tracks Of The Week @Adele @Bonkaz @YellowsUK @Young_Spray @OfficialGiggs @Novelist @KyleLettman

Adele – Hello

News came out that one of Britain’s finest singers Adele has completed her new album 25 and this week saw her release the video to her first single to be heard off of it “Hello”. The single was premiered on the breakfast show on Radio 1 along with an honest interview with Adele that reminded us why she is seen as a national treasure to us. The soulful singer has yet again captivated people with her voice, haunted with her lyrics and got people talking about the flip phone in her video. Watch it below.

Bonkaz – You Don’t Know

Bonkaz shows people he can have fun with his music too with his new track “You Don’t Know” which samples Dizzee Rascal’s “Bonkers”. Produced by Splurgeboys and Sonny Reeves, Annie Mac announced it as her ‘hottest record in the world’ on her Radio 1 show. This track is set to be another future anthem from Bonkaz, who we can see is going to be bringing us hits for a long time to come.

Yellows – Yella Belly 

Alwayz Recordings rapper from North London Yellows has just dropped the visuals to accompany his new freestyle “Yella Belly” which premiered on GRM Daily. Yellows talk real life issues in this new one, what he’s been going through personally and why he’s been quite for a bit musically. He rides the beat like a pro and his flow is naturally tight on it. This is real and why it’s one of my tracks of the week.

Young Spray & Giggs – Gangster For Certain

What a combination. When you hear these two names together you know this is going to be a banger. North London’s Young Spray joins forces with South London’s Giggs who are two of UK rap’s hardest; bring us the video for “Gangsters For Certain”. This is UK rap at it’s grittiest and is a street anthem that will be a classic for years to come.

Novelist – Endz

Lewisham Grime MC Novelist keeps coming with the bangers and “Endz” sees the 18-year-old take it back in time to the foundational roots. The video is nostalgic, looking like it was filmed on a handheld camera giving it a vintage feel, and the beat is minimal allowing Novelist to spray his bars about his hometown of Brockley.

Kyle Lettman – Crush 

Kyle Lettman that will get you feeling all hot under the collar when you press play on his sexy, brand new single “Crush” off his second EP Under Construction which will drop next month. “Crush” brings old school R&B vibes back that we all remember and love with some reggae influence, which kind of reminds us a bit of Sean Paul but more R&B. It will make you want to hit the dance floor as it’s filled with straight vibes bringing a basement feel.

MTV The Wrap Up – Rap Rundown [News]

 

She is the name on everyone’s lips right now, from industry experts, to music artists, to fans; Little Simz is killing it right now. Keeping the heat on her (which isn’t hard for her), the 20-year-old North London rapper drops the video to ‘The Hamptons’ which is another visual taken from her critically acclaimed E.D.G.E EP. The video truly captures the meaning and ethos of the track that is produced by Da-P (Soulection) and features cameos from singer Kali Uchis and Ricky Bricks from THC.

Yellows and Paigey Cakey both from the Alwayz Recording camp joined forces for Yellows new track ‘Cake’. The two MC’s play on the meaning of the word cake, from the sweet food, to money, to a women’s soft disposition over a bassy, lively beat, with the pairs vocals complementing each other from Yellows deep tone to Paigey’s sweet one. This track will be on Yellows’ forthcoming mixtape ‘No Ego’ watch out for that one!

Black The Ripper’s new track introduced us to his forthcoming project too, ‘Outlaw Volume 2 ‘which is due to be released at the end of August. In true Samson style we see the lyricist spit some realness about his thoughts from the music business to life in general in ‘I Don’t Feel Nothin’, “Industry don’t like me, but I ain’t here to make mates”. On the hook providing us with vocals is Tayong.

South London’s Youngs Teflons has shown a lot of other people up who have attempted to remix Drake’s 0-100, as last week he released a video putting his own spin on it. He has some serious wordplay on this track and an effortless, natural flow that really proves why he is one of the most rated lyricists about. Listen to these clever bars properly and take in what Tefs is saying.

Dot Rotten released his anticipated mixtape ‘Interview’ full of diverse but brilliant tracks from start to finish. With various and varied artists featuring such as Abel Miller, Lady Leshurr, Stylo G and more, the tracks cover numerous subjects from the music industry, label issues which he sets straight, women and more. Dot has again created a work of art which you can download over at minarmydownloads.com.

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.

Yellows (@Yellowsuk) ft Shalo – Together [Music Video]

Yellows shows off his diverse lyrical ability, showcasing his different flows and delivery.

MTV The Wrap Up: UK Rap Rundown [News]

This week is all about the Lord Of The Mics release and all last week we saw it being talked about everywhere on the social networks and blogs and sites supporting the movement started by Ratty and Jammer…

The press launch party also took place last week, which saw press being invited down to watch the clashes before the release and everyone talking about their opinions of who won. Some of the opinions were quite definite, others were hard to tell. Now its out, I’m sure a lot of you have watched it, what do you think?

The Allstars track was also unleashed on radio and on Soundcloud for us to hear and featured Jammer, Maxsta, Big Shizz, Blizzard, Lil Nasty, Realz, D2, Lil Choppa and Zeo. Check it out now!

Goldie 1’s name has been popping up this year quite a lot on the rap circuit and I definitely like his style, he’s brought something different to the table. A very trappy style which features two of my favourites who are just getting bigger and better and have had an incredible year Sho Shallow and Ard Adz and also a strong verse from Ayo Beatz.

Two South London rappers join forces for this new club banger which sees Ghost from Squeeze 4 Ps collaborate with SN1’s Giggs. The two deliver some hard bars over a dark instrumental. Look out for more to come from Ghost next year.

One of Grime’s hardest duo’s the Newham Generals last week dropped another video this one entitled ‘Passion.’ The track was premiered on Mistajam’s show on 1Xtra recently with the video being released soon after last week and shows the General’s passion for Grime still.

Alwayz Recording artist Yellows brought out his ‘Yellows Pages 2’ EP and we should be expecting more visuals from it very very soon. The mixtape sees collaborations from Sneakbo, Paigey Cakey, Fuze BW and more. Make sure you go and get that now.

MTV The Wrap Up: UK Rap Rundown [News]

This week The Wrap Up team were invited down to the Rascals ‘Class 90’ album launch. The first song off it to be released produced by Show N Prove and featuring Big Narstie ‘My Different’ has been getting a lot of love and he was there to perform it live with them. Squeeks, Manga, Maxsta and more also performed tracks live they were featured on on the album…

Wretch 32 had everyone talking last week as GRM Daily resumed it’s Daily Duppy for it’s 3rd series and Wretch showed everyone how it was done. It’s going to make it hard for the other rappers now as he showed what a fine lyricist he is and why he is classed as one of the UK’s greats of our time.

This rapper is one that everyone needs to be aware of and is perhaps overlooked by some, but things are changing. Mynature from South London has got people taking notice this year with his releases and ‘The Massacre’ has hit the nail on the head for me showcasing his machine gun flow. Mynature will be causing waves in 2014 with his forthcoming album, watch this space.

Alwayz Recording artist Yellows has been gearing up for the release of his 19 track mixtape ‘Yellows Pages 2’ which features AR artists Fuze BW, Paigey Cakey, G Money plus Sneakbo, Mark Asari and more released 10th December. The video ‘Coz I Can’ featuring Stacky was released last week, see who you can spot in the there.

Murda releases his mixtape ‘A Brick From The Block’ mixtape in a few days (29th November) and gives us a little taster of what to expect by dropping a video via Toxic TV ‘Out Here’ featuring Bellzey. They are both rappers to look out for, and I look forward to hearing the mixtape to see what it has to offer.
