RapFix handpicks a few UK hip-hop and grime gems for the week. Artists include Paigey Cakey, Mike GLC, and DVS.
Paigey Cakey – “Same Way”
Now settled into the seasoned nest of Alwayz Recordings (Chip), Paigey Cakey has the support to really fly. The pint-sized MC will release her new EP, The Next Paige, in November, with the first track being something all the haters can swivel on, “Same Way.”
Mike GLC – “Flying High”
Mike GLC has had possibly the worst year of his life, after being unfairly set up by The Sun, but the rapper hasn’t let any of the drama distract him from his music grind (slackers, take note). The title of his new track, “Flying High,” would probably suggest that he ain’t worried about nothin’, but his lyrical content digs deeper than you’d expect.
DVS Feat. Syikes – “Versace” (Freestyle)
Just when you thought you heard all of the “Versace” freestyles possible, DVS comes through with a hood version of the Migos club banger. As expected, the Brixton-bred rapper spits flossy rhymes whilst rocking flossy Versace threads in the video (standard!) The track also features fellow Brixtonite, Syikes. DVS’ London Boy, American Dreaming mixtape drops next month.
Blacks & Footsie Feat. Little Dee – “Lunatic”
Despite the poor visuals, Blacks, Footsie, and Little Dee’s new grime number, “Lunatic,” is a good’un. Bars for days!
