South London emcee Dimzy blazes in with the devilishly brilliant ‘Burn It’

South London emcee Dimzy ups the standard of British Hip Hop with the excellent visuals for his latest single called ‘Burn It‘.

Burn It‘ is the latest single to come from Dimzy, member of UK drill group 67. With a brilliantly shot video to match its energy and sound, ‘Burn It‘ oozes authenticity and swagger with slick visuals and ominous trap-influenced beats. The official video premiered at the end of August with GRM Daily and has already hit over 300,000 views. Dimzy is on top form here and the results show. his flow is so tight and lyrically each word is carefully constructed throughout. I’d love to see him on a track with US emcees Roc Marciano or Wiz Khalifa, this UK emcee is up there with the very best in the game.

Originally written in the summer of 2019, Dimzy came back to the track this year with a fresh mindset and updated the lyrics to what you hear today. Finding an instrumental from Swayybeats which matched the beat in the most perfect way, Dimzy was able to reconstruct the single, producing a clear vision for the song. With extra time to make sure this track is exactly what he wanted, the extra time and effort is noticeable.

Hailing from South London, Dimzy is one of the rising stars of the UK Drill scene. A member of popular drill group 67, he has collaborated with a huge variety of artists including Giggs, and has consistently been releasing new music since 2017. Garnering a massive following on social media, Dimzy draws his fans in with his authenticity and the energy that he puts into his lyrics and live shows, maintaining the original spirit of his early days in music. With 67, he has won Best Mixtape Award and was nominated for Best Newcomer at the MOBO Awards.

Dimzy clears away the competition here with this video and quality track with ‘Burn It’ and this is a track to play real loud in the car with the homies. An excellent beat to match the quality storytelling, this is one of the best Hip Hop tracks of 2020 without doubt.

Jay Rick$ brought poignantly sobering introspection into the realms of Gangster Rap with “Thug Ways”

Breaking Hip Hop artist Jay Rick$ has recently dropped their striking new single Thug Ways. Whatever your perceptions of Gangster Rap are, throw them out of the window before you hit play.

The compelling track holds up a mirror to our 21st-century reality where it’s all too clear that nothing has changed since N.W.A. used their aggression to create hit records. But that doesn’t mean that Jay Rick$’ track isn’t fresh. It drips with commercial potential. His transfixing ability to pull you right into the candidly revealing first-person perspective made Thug Ways one of the most grounding tracks I’ve heard this year.

The cutting minor notes around the rattle of the drumbeats are more than effective at setting the sobering tone. The sobering tone which will stick around long after the atmospheric track has faded to a close. We’re already stoked to hear what comes next.

You can check out the official music video to Thug Ways which dropped on July 2nd for yourselves by heading over to YouTube.

Indianapolis Rapper Jett Jones shines brightly with ”Headlights”

You love that special someone but don’t want to get messed around any further. You feel like a zombie when you see her and don’t know what to do. They are the one that you think you should be with but it just isn’t working out. You feel like a deer in her headlights and she isn’t stopping. Is it time to end things or try again?

Jett Jones is a well-traveled Hip Hop/Pop artist who has released a stack of singles lately. He is part of the new school waves of musicians that don’t bring out albums and this method seems to be working.

Headlights’‘ is song all about being stuck in the bright lights with the one that you care about. You haven’t had much luck with love and feel like this one isn’t going to work out. A sad story indeed and the video is very reflective too. This is an impressive artist who is riding on a massive wave and is on a huge tube currently.

Jett Jones is on a mission for global recognition and you can see why with this quality release. He has found a home now in Indiana after moving so much and he is firmly planted on many fans playlists all over the world.

To see this music video be sure to click on Jett’s Youtube page.

This is a single guys anthem right here. Kade Fresco & Lil Baby did things their way to get to the top and it wasn’t always so easy. They are enjoying single life and aren’t keen to change that and get sucked into the relationship life. These two talented rappers are going full tilt and aren’t stopping for anyone.

On My Own” is a quality Hip Hop track and my head can’t stop bouncing to the tight beat. These are two emcee’s at the top of their game as there is only straight up fire here. The story about doing things on your own and seeing so-called friends real intentions when the going gets tough is so real. You truly know who your real family is only after the bad times. When things are good, your phone is always busy and some people only want to be around you when you are up. Kade Fresco & Lil Baby make it very clear that they are too busy making money to answer the phone with petty business. They are on the flight all the way to the top via VIP and will not be dragged down.

Kade Fresco & Lil Baby make a great team and will always have the dance floor sweaty with their signature brand of tight flows and real lyrics. ”On My Own” should be on all of our Hip Hop playlists.
