November is over - what?! If like us you're shocked at how many fire releases dropped in such a short space of time, don't worry, we got you.
'Dim My Light’ – Scribz Riley ft. 6LACK
The ‘Woah’ sample by Snoh Aalegra completely lights up this track, in what already is an exquisite ballad by the Grammy Award-winning East Londoner and the Atlanta star
‘Off the Lead’ – Working On Dying and Lancey Foux
On an ethereal beat made by Working On Dying, the Philadelphia based production collective, Lancey Foux unleashes himself with a remarkable braggadocious verse.
‘Informa’ – Pa Salieu ft. M1llionz
Pa Salieu has finally announced his arrival onto the scene with the release of his debut album Send Them To Coventry. His rawness and originality is showcased throughout the whole project, but it is especially prominent in ‘Informa’. The chemistry with M1llionz on this track is left in no doubt, and the Birmingham rapper delivers a stellar verse once more this year. Pa Salieu is on the road to go straight to the top, and upon listening to Send Them To Coventry, there is no reason why he cannot get there.
'Yesterday' - Loyle Carner Well, what did we do to deserve this? Loyle Carner offers a glimmer of hope in an otherwise dreadfully awful year with his first drop of 2020. Spitting fire over an ice cold chopped sample produced by the iconic Madlib, it is an unexpected-yet-somehow-quite-expected collaboration that might not have seen the light of day because of sample clearance issues. Written over two years ago, he touches on identity, race and politics, and as masterfully as ever delivers something conscious and superb. This is his first release since the album “Not Waving, But Drowning” that charted No. 1 in the UK R&B chart early last year. The ending of the music video pans to a poster introducing “MadLoyle” hopefully this means an album or project under this title will be arriving soon...
'VV' - Digga D
One of South London’s top artists releases another single proving to everyone that he is elite with the word play. Following his previous release Assassins Creed last month Deptford’s DigDat comes back again with VV. This song starts with him mentioning VVs, which are very expensive diamonds proving the point that since his first big song Airforce he has made a lot of money. When listening to this song you have to press pause on multiple occasions, because his word play is so good. In one line he talks about “You better not Trippie or end up Redd”. That referencing the artist Trippie Redd. That is one of many examples of word play in the song. The main point of this song is that he has made a lot of money, and that he came from a life of struggle in the streets of south London. Like his previous songs it looks to be on its way to hitting a million views within a week, this is a big milestone as a not a lot of UK rap artists can hit a million views in such a short amount of time.
'Now Or Never' - Giggs
Giggs is back on the scene with new mixtape ‘Now Or Never’. The project contains numerous standout tracks including a lengthy feature from Dave on ‘Straight Murder’. Yet arguably ‘Buff Baddies’ is the track of the mixtape. The Trooh Hippi produced beat brings out Giggs at his best with slick flow and his renowned deep vocals. Be sure to check out the visuals for ‘Buff Baddies’ plus the mixtape ‘Now Or Never’.
