Teenage Rap Talent Brodie Unveils New Single, ‘Diamonds’

Hotly tipped BRODIE returns, closing the year with his latest single, ‘Diamonds’, which is taken from his forthcoming debut EP set to be released in the New Year.

The captivating bass-heavy rap track sees the North Londoner in braggadocios mode, as he waxes lyrically about the life and times of a rising rap stalwart, who is intent on taking his talents to the very top of the UK rap music landscape.

Speaking about the inspiration behind ‘Diamonds’, Brodie says, “My inspiration for writing ‘Diamonds’ was my desire to be a star in UK rap. I was seeing people blow up around that time and it just fuelled me to write ‘Diamonds’, as it made me feel like I can do it too. You can hear the hunger and passion in the track and I think that’s what makes it powerful. Being a rap artist is all I’ve ever wanted, and I was almost speaking all the things I wanted into existence”.

Already garnering early support from tastemakers such as GRM Daily, Link Up TV, and SBTV, t Brodie is fast proving to be one to watch for 2020. With his infectious flow, lyrical prowess, melodic raps, and singing abilities, which he barely scratched the surface of, on previous singles like ‘Rain On Em’ and ‘Rest & Pray’, this 17-year-old is definitely setting himself apart from the rest of the pack, in a pretty big way….
