“Trapstar” is the arrestingly slick latest single to be dropped by up and coming London-based Trap artist Ricky Racks. The beats may be modern and offer plenty of contemporary appeal. But the Rap verses and the lyrics bring back the most missed elements of Old School Hip Hop.
Ricky Racks’ verses practically drip venom and hold a stark mirror up to society in true Grime fashion. Combine that with the fact that it’s practically impossible not to get caught up in the smooth flow, and you’ve got a Trap hit.
With the playful and light beats creating the perfect contrasting platform for Ricky Racks to lay down their vitriolic verses, Trap tracks don’t come much more authentic than this. Get him on your radar.
