New Music Video: Been Hustlin’ – Guvna B

Blazing straight on to Spotify’s New Music Friday playlist, Apple Music’s Best of the Week and DJ Target’s #UKUnsigned record of the day, GUVNA B releases his new single ‘Been Hustlin’, the second track taken from his forthcoming album.

Centering on life lessons and rebelling against the status quo, ‘Been Hustlin’ is ultimately an insight into GUVNA B and the impressive journey the musician has been on. The double MOBO award-winning rap and grime star lays down energetic and inspiring lyricism with his signature delivery across the melodic rap instrumental, while cheeky samples of Only Fools and Horses draw reference to the ultimate hustler, Del Boy.

Having previously released the UK’s highest charting ‘clean’ Rap album in 2015 and subsequently achieving an Amazon bestseller for his debut book release ‘Unpopular Culture’ in 2017, GUVNA B has long since been acknowledged for both his exemplary music and audacious application to his craft. He’s played the O2 Arena, Wembley Stadium and toured through North America, Australasia, Africa and Europe. He has worked with Destiny Child’s Michelle Williams, Matt Redman, Martin Smith, Hillsong and Nick Brewer, and platforms such as BBC, Sky News, and MTV have recognised his courage and success at making a positive impact through his music.

The accompanied video is an insight to the songs inspiration. GUVNA B explained: “My dad was a proper hard worker right up until he died. I feel like I took on that trait but I was working towards the wrong things and buying lots of things just so I could stunt. This single is about me finding out what’s really important in life”.

Yet even with such poignant meaning running deep, GUVNA B displays his sharp wit and cheeky personality. Check out the new video below from black Del Boy himself.


Song of the Day: Smother Me – Olivia Nelson

After accumulating over five million streams featuring on Soulection Jarreau Vandal’s ‘Someone That You Love’, OLIVIA NELSON dominates today’s hotspot with gospel-led, soulful track – ‘Smother Me’.

Premiered by DJ Target on BBC Radio 1Xtra as ‘UK unsigned’, the sensual track, which mixes the perfect blend of smooth vocals, passionate lyrics, and pumping bass lines shows the 21-year-old London singer/songwriter power as not only a skilled artist and songwriter, but a powerhouse vocalist whose range and control over carefully crafted production by Jarreau Vandal.

With a debut EP due out early summer, March will see the release of the next instalment from Olivia, as well as shows at London’s Hackney Oslo and Omera.

This is some powerful stuff…I highly recommend you check out ‘Smother Me’ before you sign out.

New Music Video: On Remand – K Koke (ft. Dappy)

Ahead of his ‘FFF Prison’ EP release, with features from Angel, Maverick Sabre, Big French and Dappy, K KOKE dropped the video for latest single ‘On Remand’ on Friday.

Featuring Dappy, this UK hip-hop contender lays bare the emotions he went through when he was wrongly accused of a crime he didn’t commit, and raps about how his life was turned upside down.

Check out the visuals for ‘On Remand’.

New Music Video: Revvin’ – Ocean Wisdom (ft. Dizzee Rascal)

OCEAN WISDOM releases his album along with the video to ‘Revvin’, featuring one of the UK’s biggest stars Dizzee Rascal.

The record is one of the many golden finds from the album, showing off the rappers warp speed flow and double-time delivery, which is one of his many unique eccentricities. Joined by the Boy In Da Corner, Dizzee Rascal, who described OCEAN WISDOM during their studio session as a “mental lyricist, one of the best I’ve heard period”, brings his own flavour and vibe to the track adding his own quick-time flows and savage bars that leave you in awe of the talent coming from one tune. Following its radio premiere with DJ Target on his BBC Radio 1Xtra show, ‘Revvin’ tipped the BBC website as the most listened to track from his shows throughout the week and was subsequently chosen as the DJ’s Record Of The Week on the station.

As the second visual to drop from the album, the bar is raised by OCEAN WISDOM on his own work as nostalgia, energy and raw venom spin out of the scenes. Filmed at night surrounded by their own crews, the rappers are clearly at ease and in the moment as they drip with effortless swag to deliver a dope video that captures the essence of ‘Revvin’. Both wrap their flows around the beat perfectly, bringing an old skool vibe and blowing up the beat for one of the biggest tracks on the album.

Released on the 23rd February, ‘Wizville’ is the pinnacle of OCEAN WISDOM’s work so far. His unswayable integrity and confidence towards his music has awarded him with the kudos that it takes to confirm artists such as Dizzee Rascal, Method Man, P Money, Rodney P, Roots Manuva & Chester P and productions from Rude Kid, Pete Cannon, Mystry and more, across the 20 impressive records that make up this important offering. Whilst unique blends of genre-merging flows weave in to thought-provoking lyricism to create a tapestry of moods, emotions and sonic nirvana.

Having built an impressive following in his own unique way, away from the tried and tested routes of fellow rappers, the raw poetic and unfiltered rapper signed to High Focus Records in 2014, (the label that has spearheaded the UK hop-hop movement for the last eight years, including ‘Rag’n’Bone Man’s’ first projects that set him firmly on course for superstardom), and regularly tips a million streams on tracks uploaded to his Spotify account as well as his YouTube hits netting over 15 million views.

Through his versatility and unparalleled lyrical creativity, stage presence and flow, OCEAN WISDOM delivers major impressions in each aspect of his artistry, from performing to main-stage crowds of over 10,000 people to dethroning Eminem as the ‘fastest rapper’, after managing to fit an impressive 4.45 words per second into his track ‘Walkin’ compared to Eminem’s 4.31 words per second in ‘Rap God’, as documented by UniLad. This article would go on to become viral, drawing praise for Wizzy as well as being commented on by some of the industry’s forerunners such as The Game, D12 and Akon.

New Music Video: Woah – Kritz93 (ft.E. Mak)


KRITZ93, E.Mak and Sunny Kale – the producer behind Stormzy’s hit ‘100 Bags’ – cooked up a straight-talking banger entitled ‘Woah’. Taking a unapologetically raw street approach, this brand new hot collab is already tearing up the underground grime scene.

Gaining initial exposure from DJ Target, who cherry picked the record as his ‘Targo Embargo’ in early January, KRITZ93 took to the BBC Radio 1Xtra airwaves to introduce himself and his record to the nation and it has since been hot on the selection lists across Kiss Fresh, Radar Radio, Westside FM.

A newcomer to the game, KRITZ93 spent the entirety of 2017 recording and releasing music, freestyles and videos online, building a respectable stock of well-received and supported music. He was also found collaborating and featuring on a selection of tracks, which included ‘G’s Dem’ for DJ P Montana’s Rah Boy – Vol 1 mixtape. Teaming up with E. Mak on the record, who’s profile has recently soared from his release ‘Yo!’, the pair chopped it up over a hybrid of melodic genres and vowed to jump back in to the studio together quickly, resulting in the creation of ‘Woah’…check out the video.
