In May 2018 we were treated to Drey Cunningham’s latest drop Happy Time, he teamed up with fellow Rap artist Lil Lito and producer Tobiaas to create a hyped beat that I can guarantee will offer you a gritty, real, feverish offering of Grime fuelled by a mix of contemporary and old school beats. Whilst a few of the lyrics in the verses were a little questionable there’s no disputing that Drey & Lil Lito have a unique rhythmic edge behind their Rap bars.
I have no doubt that the Madagascan based artist Drey Cunningham can give all the NYC rappers a run for their money with Happy Time. He may be on the underground now, but he’s certainly poured the heat of Madagascar into his beats to create a track which would be perfect to whack on your summertime Hip Hop playlists. Whilst the lyricism may be a little harsh, the beat flows at the perfect tempo allowing you to slide into the beat and get wrapped up in the momentum of Drey’s vibe.
