If you believe in Yeezus, chances are the anticipation for his new album, WAVES (formerly known as SWISH after he'd already changed his mind for the millionth time), is getting a little too much. This drop (ending with a quick clip of 'No More Parties In LA' Ft. Kendrick Lamar), should ease the pain a bit, seeing Ye go a little softer than his 'Black Skinhead' days for a chilled vibe closer to College Dropout.
Kano (Ft. Giggs) - 3 Wheel-ups
Kano goes hard with '3 Wheel-Ups'. Heavy hitting bars on a catchy riddim (produced by Swifta Beater), it promises big things from his upcoming album, Made In The Manor. With a video featuring trumpets, quad bikes and Courvoisier, '3 Wheel-Ups' is a welcome return to Kano's grime roots, without forgetting how far he's come.
Stormzy - One Take Freestyle
Stormzy is pretty much dominating the grime scene at the moment, and his insane freestyles are definitely what sets him apart. The first ever artist to get a freestyle in the charts, it's safe to say his rhyming skills are on par with some of the greats, and this surprise drop is no exception. Check out the video, featuring our favourite adidas fanatic spitting hot fire in the land of the rising sun.
Wretch 32 & Avelino - The 15th
Like summer came early, 'The 15th' brings Wretch 32 and Avelino together with Moelogo and Sneakbo for a track that's sure to brighten up the darkest winter day. With an almost tropical rythm, close your eyes and it might as well be June already.
Krept & Konan - Falling
One of the biggest (and most emotional) tracks to come from Krept and Konan's latest, The Long Way Home, 'Falling' has been asking for a music video for a long time. A relaxed track with real lyrics and an RnB rhythm, if you're ever making a mixtape for bae, don't miss this off.
Kendrick Lamar - Untitled 2
Very few people have a stage presence like King Kendrick. Performed on The Tonight Show over in the US, we want an official release of 'Untitled 2' right now. A jazz influenced rap mashup that would fit right in on To Pimp A Butterfly, his energy is crazy on Jimmy Fallon's stage. If you weren't already desperate for more from Compton's finest, you will be now.
Chip - Sonic Boom
Chip has lived up to his infamous reputation over the past few months, sparking beef with Bugzy Malone and reigniting his age-old clash with Tinie Tempah. Leaving the mainstream for a triumphant return to grime, he's released a fair few new tracks recently, and 'Sonic Boom' is among the best. Sampling 'Scholarships' by Drake/Future, the beat is fire, and while the lyrics aren't as deep as his best, 'Sonic Boom' doesn't disappoint.
Rihanna (Ft. Drake) - Work
A nice way to round off the month, Rihanna released 'Work'(Ft. Dake) on the 27th, in anticipation of her new album ANTI, which she released later that day. A completely new direction for Krept and Konan's favourite female artist, you'll have to head over to Tidal to listen to it though, where you can also grab ANTI for absolutely free using the code 'ANTI' at this link.
