A.M. SNiPER flashes back into the limelight with Hype, the first single from his forthcoming debut album.
The British-Cypriot rapper is renowned for teaming up with some of the biggest names in music across both the UK and US scenes from his base in Ayia Napa (the original hotspot and mainstay for UK Garage, Grime and Urban music in Europe), hosting and collaborating with a bonafide plethora of stars including Chris Brown, Tyga, Rick Ross, Wiley, JME, Julian Marley, Dj Jaguar Skills and Memphis Bleek.
For his latest banger, A.M. joins forces with one of hiphop’s undisputed underground kings, New Orleans rapper Curren$y, long-term friend and collaborator of Wiz Khalifa. The track boasts a late-night jam that oozes understated class.
A.M. SNiPER’s musical prowess stems as far back as the early 2000s, where as a budding teenager in the UK Garage pioneers’ So Solid Crew, he produced a third of their sophomore album. This finesse and adept appreciation of authenticity and culture is reflected on the new single. The track samples A Tribe Called Quest’s Butter with vocal cuts from the late Phife Dawg and pays tribute to similar icons – Bob Marley for instance – two artists concerned with the art and the vision rather than the hype.
Hype will be available on iTunes from 24th June…but for now, check out the visual to the single.
