Last week The Wrap Up went to support the MTV Brand New nominees party at the Drury Club in London. Wretch 32 performed on the night with hits ‘Don’t Go’, ‘Blackout’ and more really getting the crowd really in the mood to party...
Kano is back and it’s good to hear new music from the talented MC after we’ve seen him acting in the second series of Top Boy. ‘Puppets and Strings’ looks at his career over the years, music industry and more, it’s clear he had a lot he wanted to tell people and get off his chest. The 6-minute track has a slow start but picks up and the last verse really shows off Kano’s lyrical skills.
Peak is someone who in the last part of this year has been keeping his name buzzing releasing freestyles, clever move as the ‘Str88 Ham’ mixtape will be out January from him, Syikes, FA and Kerz. He dropped a Rated freestyle for GRM Daily last week and really impressed with his bars getting people ready for what’s to come.
Fem Fel recently dropped an EP ‘Left Of Centre’ after being quiet for a little while. The South London rapper takes it down a dubby route on the production that is quite dark with his flow riding the beat. The visuals are quite trippy and match the track near perfect.
Logic released the video to ‘More True Talk’ produced by Last Resort off the album of the same name. The conscious rapper talks us through a number of issues on this track and shows off different flows on this truthful track. If you like hearing hip-hop that stands for something with thoughtful bars check this out.
Skore Beezy released a video covering Wretch 32’s ‘Forgiveness’ in memory of Veli a friend and talented rapper who sadly passed away, and to mark the release of his mixtape ‘Beezy In Da Trap’. We hear verses from both Skore Beezy and Veli both are hugely talented rappers and Skore is one to watch out for in 2014, I can predict big things for him, download the mixtape now and you’ll understand why I say this.
