KANYE WEST – I LOVE IT

Kanye West dropped a brand new track on Friday, and as usual there’s a whole lot to unpack.  Before we get to the track itself, let’s give it some context.  ‘I Love It’ made it’s debut at the first annual [and seemingly disastrous] Pornhub Awards, at which West was co-Creative Director.  The new job, we…

EMINEM – KAMIKAZE

Eminem surprised us all this week with the unexpected release of his tenth studio album ‘Kamikaze’, a follow-up to December 2017’s ‘Revival’.

MICK JENKINS – WHAT AM I TO DO

MEZ – ONE FLOW

Self-professed ‘big lyricist’/’antagonist’ Mez drops new single ‘One Flow’, his first since February’s ‘TYRONE EP‘.  The General Courts-produced cut also gets a visual filmed by Bipolar Spider in the legendary basement at Jammer’s family home for its official video, the historical epicentre of the Grime scene.  Stream below via YouTube.

SLOWTHAI – DRUG DEALER

Piece by piece, Slowthai’s discography is getting pretty exciting. New track ‘Drug Dealer’ latest sees him tell his characteristic tales of a broken Britain over a dark, horror flick string arrangement. In our opinion, the frequent comparison of the Northampton MC to Dizzee Rascal are unwarranted. Although in a league entirely of his own, there…
