South-East London MC Enny unveils more of her inner wordsmith in her newest release. ‘For South,’ drawing on the musical influences of Lauryn Hill, Nas and J. Cole. The third track from The Silhouettes Project sees her deliver hard-hitting lyrics about retaining hope despite growing up in a place where the odds are stacked against you with an impressive, subtle dexterity.
“We weren’t meant to stay here but to grow and fly / Need a little push to get you out the hood? / You’re a superman, use your powers for good,” Enny sings, sprinkling Black Girl Magic into tongue twisting bars and metaphors.
Produced by Nix Northwest, the piano riff in ‘For South’ creates a gentle melody that carries Enny’s steady flow. The short but sweet track encloses a singular verse with hooks to open and close. Releasing new collaborations weekly, The Silhouettes Project is proving to build solid connections among its artists. As for Enny, from the ‘A Million Freestyle‘ on the iconic Jay-Z / DJ Premier instrumental to the debut single ‘He’s Not Into You’, she’s clearly coming into her own and beginning to peel back the layers of her sound.
