Uk Rap Rundown
On Tuesday I went down to Music Is My Drug, a live music showcase which takes place weekly in east London. Blizzard and Lady Lykez were two rappers performing on the night; they received the biggest reception from the audience, who seemed to really take to them. Lykez came on before Blizzard who was last - they had brilliant stage presence and got people moving…
Dappy and his on-off girlfriend have been at it again on twitter; Dappy is currently on tour across the country and his partner seems to think he’s been having too much fun with his groupies.
“Why don’t you just f**k off with your groupies and seriously leave me alone. Ur sad as F**k…” she tweeted. She also threatened to ‘Do a Rob Kardashian’, then hacked his Twitter with some very crude and vulgar tweets.
S.A.S aka Mega and Mayhem dropped their new mixtape ‘Coming To America II’ last week along with the visuals to the track ‘Drug Flow’. Hosted By Big Mike, DJ Snips & DJ Allure, it was only right that they had a follow up to ‘Coming To America’ which really got them heard during their Dipset days.
As Ratlin geared up for the release of his mixtape ‘Crown Me’, putting out a video on Friday for the track ‘Crunch Time’ featuring his brother Shak Corelone. ‘Crown Me’ is out today and you can download it from GRM Daily.
Haze was joined by Sincere and Ghetts as he drops the visuals to ‘Where I’m From’ which is taken from his recently released mixtape ‘Loyalty, Honour, Respect’ and sees him take us on a tour of London.
SN1’s Giggs and Waka Flocka Flame took to the studio again whilst Waka was over in London for their second collaboration ‘Lemme Get Dat’. SB.TV popped down and got some visuals for the Bayoz Music produced track.
Joe Grind had something interesting for us this week as last night he released the inventive visual to ‘I’m The S**t!!!’ showing clips of his fans who filmed themselves for the video.
Yungen picks up a bottle and drowns his sorrows in ‘Off The Record’, produced by Steel Banglez. This is interesting material, as he raps about the bad times he’s been through for the first three minutes before singer Ari takes over for the remaining two minutes.
