BBK ’til the death.

Boy Betta Know Records has had a big year. Drake signed on to the label, Skepta’s Konnichiwa had the best chart performance of any grime album and his own career has skyrocketed to new heights with global fame and a plethora of endorsements. However, stateside, little is known about the other artists on BBK. Shorty is one of them, the rapper has an album coming out soon called Moesh Music and it’s packed with exciting features. Artists such as Jammer, JME, Solo 45, Frisco, Face and Kadiata will all be on the project. Moesh Music will be out at the end of the week and you can find it right here.

Stormzy drops off a new song titled “Brotherhood”

Stormzy takes to Beats 1 to drop off a brand new song called “Brotherhood.” The UK rapper called the song a banger and I think that title is very appropriate. He’s been on a world tour with Adidas and he recently celebrated his birthday at a rented out amusement park, this is the first single we’ve gotten from him in a while. Hopefully a project from Stormzy is on the way but until then check out “Brotherhood” below.

Skepta- “Konnichiwa” (Album Stream)

Skepta’s debut album “Konnichiwa” is finally upon us and it bangs. The U.K. artist really puts Grime on the map with this one. “Numbers” with Pharrell Williams is a standout not because of Pharrell but because of the beat. Don’t miss out and stream this below.

Stormzy drops off an aggressive new track titled “Scary”

Coming straight for your neck.

All I wanna hear is grime. American hip hop/ rap can take a backseat because Stormzy, Skepta and a plethora of other UK artists are the future. The other day Stormzy hit the inter webs with a tough new song/video titled “Scary.” The UK spitter always comes correct with the aggressive bars that sound like he might snap at any second and turn words to actions. Check it out for yourself below.

Mark your calendars for May 1st. That’s when Skepta’s long awaited album Konnichiwa is slated for release. Below you can check out the tracklist. To my dismay there’s not sign of Drake on the listing. I wanted a remix of “Ladies Hit Squad” with a crazy Drake line. Oh well, looks like we’ll have to wait for anything new from Drizzy and Skep. Konnichiwa has been on my radar for awhile and it’s shaping up to be one of the best albums of the year.
