Simi Crowns – Ones To Watch

The Lagos-born and Dublin-based emcee, Simi Crowns is back with some new material. This track amply gets the wheels in motion for what is sure to be an excellent debut album due for release sometime this year.

Stormzy – Scary

Stormzy unleashes another track in anticipation of his debut album. There’s even a hint at the start of the video that the project is coming soon. He was also announced recently to perform at Longitude this July.

Big Grams – Run For Your Life

I definitely slept on this collaborative project from Outkast’s Big Boi and Phantogram. This track perfectly encapsulates the tone of the unique album. The double video from Adult Swim is also worth a watch for anyone who is a fan of abstract visuals to go with their music.

Geto Boys – Mind Playing Tricks On Me

A classic from Scarface and co. to go with this week’s top five. Stellar production and epic storytelling. What more could you ask for?

aboveDat – Addicted

Stevie G and Ian Ring unite for this new project released through the Soul Jamz record label. A soulful, funk driven track with vocals from Christiana Underwood.
