Free Music: Ruff Sqwad - ‘2012 Ep’
It has been an exciting time for the free EP. With leading UK acts such as Tinie Tempah, Dizzee Rascal and Kano dropping us (at times, album worthy) free EPs over the past few months, it seems like we’ll have a lot of great music to look forward to as other artists follow suit...
So when Ruff Sqwad came on the The Wrap Up’s EP radar, we had to give it a listen. The EP, simply called '2012 EP', comes after the success of 'Mario Balotelli'. The gang have dropped 12 tracks, offering features from JME, D Double E and G Tank.
The sound has Tinchy Stryder written all over it, in fact, it vaguely takes me back to 'Catch 22'. But nobody likes change, and it seems like they’ve stuck to a formula that they know works. So, regardless of the fact that it may sound a little 2010/11, it’s a sturdy offering scattered with beats that will make you bop your head and lyrics that will make you rewind from time to time.
It’s definitely worth a listen, as the EP is just a warm up for their LP, ‘Guns N Roses Volume 3’ which is due out later this year.
