Song of the Day: The Latest – DC

South London rapper DC today track, ‘The Latest’, pays homage to his rap hero J Cole. the Greenwich-born storyteller lifts the sample from ‘Chaining Day’ (Sly Slick & Wicked’s ‘Sho’nuff’), pairing the smooth, lush instrumentation with hard-won tales from life growing up in inner-city London.

Bursting onto the scene with his first freestyle ‘Gleamin’’ in 2015, the rapper quickly set the industry alight, matching dextrous wordplay with an ear for beats that has seen him win fans at the likes of Complex UK, CLASH, The Line of Best Fit, DUMMY, TRENCH, GUAP and more. DC has gone on to support J Hus on tour, graced the stage at this year’s Wireless festival and rounded out 2021 with his debut headline show which sold out in seconds and featured an appearance from collaborator Knucks.

‘The Latest’ is the first taste of music following DC’s last EP In The Loop which pushed the rapper to a new level with the singles amassing over 20 million streams on Spotify alone. Check out the video for ‘The Latest’ below…
