Uk Rap Rundown
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.
