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.

Rappers branching out from the rap game into fashion, art and other fields is no new thing but it’s becoming more and more of a trend these days. A$AP Rocky recently dropped off an interesting short film called Money Man, the film debuted two new songs from Rocky and the rest of the mob with a feature from UK heavyweight Skepta. Check out the film below, it’s an eery fusion of the movie City of God, television series The Wire and the rap game.

Skepta, Makonnen and Céon team up on “Coming Soon”

This is… interesting. Not used to hearing Skepta go in over a beat like this or rap like this. Somewhere in between MADEINTYO and Lil Yachty. After the first few listens I’m not super into it but it seems like one of those songs that will grow on me as the summer progresses. We’ll have to see. For now, take a listen to “Coming Soon” below and let us know how you feel about it.

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.
