Skepta – SHUTDOWN.

Following his surprise appearance alongside Kanye West at the Brit awards last week, Skepta uses the spotlight to showcase his latest track, SHUTDOWN. Featuring an opening from Drake, the song acts as a reminder that Skepta has been big in the scene for a good ten years. It’s a very relevant point right now after he was featured as one of Pigeons and Planes‘ 15 UK MCs to look out for in 2015. I’ve been knowing who Skepta was since before 2005 LOL.

Wati Heru & Kashaka – BKWYA Video.

Wati Heru appeared on LilyMercer.co.uk a few times back in 2013, once with the memorable video for Mawb on Site, and today he returns with a new video for BKWYA. Rapping over an instrumental by his go-to producer, Kashaka, Wati Heru‘s verses stand out as much as the video, directed by Tanner W. Jarman. Check out the video and stay tuned for the duo’s upcoming EP, DYSTOPIA FM due for release on March 13th

EarthGang – Torba EP.

In the brief time I’ve been listening to EarthGang, they’ve impressed me more than most new names on the scene. Though I don’t like to compare artists, it’s hard to deny that their sound is reminiscent of their fellow ATLians, Outkast. Not because they sound like them exactly, but because their soulful and eccentric style stands out amongst their city’s distinctive Trap scene.

If you’re new Torba EP to EarthGang, you need to immediately click play on their latest EP, Torba and see why Mac Miller, Childish Major and OG Maco all co-signed them. The EP features only seven songs, one for each day of the week.

Money Makin’ Nique & Matik Estrada – Jack Tripper.

Money Makin’ Nique and Matik Estrada have both released stunning songs with Childish Major in the last year but today they jump on the same song! Though production duties on Jack Tripper were handled by DJ Fu and Syk Sense of The FAM, not Major, it’s fair to say he influenced the collaboration, having moved to Nique‘s hometown of ATL after growning up with Estrada in South Carolina.
