LIGHTS teams up with Levelle London for his latest single, ‘Came Up’. Laid-back soul and jazz tones meet a familiar sample for hip-hop fans and the honest and genuine lyrics from the East London emcee, that has a history of striking a chord through his music.
Presenting the video via GRM Daily, LIGHTS, formerly known as ‘Lightnin’, shrouds the record with sun-filled, good-time vibes as he kicks back in the Dominican to tell his tale. Enlisting the harmonious talents of Levelle London, the hook and ad-libs make for the perfect recipe against the truth and real-talk from the man himself.
Taken from the upcoming EP of the same name, due for release in early next month, the record is the first to come from LIGHTS since his well received mixtape ‘I Ain’t Signed But I’m Nice’, which preceded a sold out headline show. However where some fail to make an impression upon their re-emergence, LIGHTS has walked straight back into his role as an honest, reflective and genuine emcee with a talent for making relatable music.
The upcomer has been a fixture in the scene since the early days of UK’s Grime and Rap. Coming up under East London’s legendary Nasty crew, which also housed the likes of Ghetts, Kano and D Double E, LIGHTS found solo success with Channel U classic ‘Hard Life’ ft Taley Riley thanks to his ability to capture the pain and frustrations of a young generation. He is now part of an independent label called “NO Stars” which includes the likes of fellow emcee and renowned producer, Pepstar.
