Lady Leshurr – #UNLESHED 3 (Humble Freestyle)

The leading female rapper’s coronation clearly continues, as she flips Kendrick’s leading single for the third instalment in her #Unleshed series.

I’m always full of praise for the Birmingham rapper, because she did what many couldn’t, and without conforming. At one point she was overlooked for a variety of reasons, nobody considered her a front runner amongst the women, let alone in general, and while so many of her competition faded away or gave up, she kept going. There was a large period where she was only the female rapper putting music out, and not to knock anyone else’s strife, but in reality she outworked the guys, and connected with an audience that paid her attention whilst so many of us did not. Now enjoying the fruits of that labour, she has only gone on to work even harder as she looks to continue the success, and so she flips the K.Dot single with her own style, full of that wit and charm with which she has captivated millions, she boasts more, with that evident confidence and rightfully so, as she basically levels with Kendrick with tricky flows of her own. She gets a little personal too towards the end, amongst the jokes, she shares more of her feelings, giving more insight into what to possibly expect from the upcoming (highly anticipated) EP.

Saskilla – Godson 1.5 EP

“Ooh Ahh Saskilla”

The Greenborough legend (word to Tinie Tempah), Saskilla could be considered a pioneer, when we look back at the classic and definitive Grime anthems, Gash By The Hour is definitely in there. Since, he has given us sound upon sound, style upon style, to most recently, where has working heavily behind the scenes to push the culture forward. He’s definitely playing his part in laying the foundation.

And so he returns to the forefront, with Godson 1.5

The 5 track EP, providing an insight into Saskilla’s evolution as an artist. In an effort to further establish the British perspective, he kicks things off with something very British and relevant to the scene, JD Bag. It’s a great mural of past and present as spins through the production, bringing you up to date. A standout track possibly, Nuttin Like Us, featuring Lady Leshurr & Big Narstie, it has the feel of the ol’ days, but it’s a very current track, with all three delivering on their verses. In regards to his work behind the scenes, the next track is evidence of that, as he enlists the features of Maybach Music Group’s Gunplay and the Bawse himself, Rick Ross, for the DJ Cameo exclusive, also featuring Scruffizzer. Solomons Temple, a track that will definitely go off live, before finishing up with Fam, with verses from Canadian Tre Mission and the legend, Wiley.

Saskilla hasn’t missed a beat when it comes to the music, as ever a component of Grime, he’s certainly someone who has his finger on the pulse, as he looks to elevate the sound higher.
