Young Spray – Rat-At-At-At ft. Roadside Gs

If you know him, then you know he’s one of the realest, but Automatic Spray looks set to return to the frontline of Gangsta rap, and has shown no signs of slowing down, following up on Nowadays, as he links up with the Roadside Gs.

Rat-At-At-At is a mix of nostalgia, with the addition of Smiley & Phantom (of the Roadside G’s collective), and a more modern take on the aggressive sound that both could be considered pioneers in, which is obvious from how effortless they flow, not only in regards to production, but the content itself. combining the Rap & Grime styles. It’s gritty, greazy and far from weak, all the factors that have had Young Spray recognised as one of the hardest out, and the change of flows courtesy of Roadside G’s help switch things up. This track will really be appreciated more so in a live setting, with it’s charged-up feel..he could come through and make an impact for sure, and it seems he’s thinking as such, with the recent material, as he’s not far from his own headline show.


Also, if it’s your thing, check out his #JailRap series, while many can argue the nature of it, or the correlation between music and crime and all that shit that is for another conversation, he has been using his own platforms to showcase those unable to at the moment. Again, if you know Spray, then it makes sense, as it’s really him trying to give those in negative situations a positive difference. Here’s the latest of the series thus far..

Calley – No Days Off ft. Young Spray & Shef

Calley, better known as Calibars, has always been praised for his lyricism, however at a time where there was not much light shone on Rap, his style and music struggled to fully connect with audiences. Sometimes, the artist might just be too good with the words and it goes over people’s heads, which was the case a lot of times with him. So now in a new space and a new name, Calley looks to realign himself with the best, and he’s taking no days off..

No Days Off is the motive, regardless of the hustle, the grind doesn’t stop, and after his return with last month’s Doner Rap, Calley’s new track is sentiment to just that (featuring Mr RTM himself..Young Spray and up and comer Shef), as he looks to keep his foot on the pedal. While Doner Rap was straight bars to digest, No Days Off is more of a structured track, with it’s melodic hook and choice of features. Calley himself is rapping with that signature flow that we’ve come to appreciate from him, and though Doner Rap might have been more captivating, this flow blends well with the distinct tone of Young Spray, who matches Calley with a strong verse, as both ‘certi’ rappers further complimented with newcomer Shef, who really holds the track together with his catchy chorus.

Definitely pleased to hear more from Calibars Calley, and if Trap rap sandwiched in metaphors and punchlines is your thing then definitely stay tuned to one of London’s most underrated.

Young Spray – Nowadays

After the real returned with his Invisible Tears album, Young Spray is definitely taking shit seriously, kicking off the new year with this new track, Nowadays..

Everyone knows that today anyone can wear a mask and be whoever they want to be over a hard-hitting beat, but the real always prevails, and that’s where Young Spray steps in. One of the original gangsta rappers, Spray brings you more than just hard bars and gangsta content, from a more realistic perspective, there’s gems within, “yeah you need water to live, but trust me blood is the thickest”.

“No banter nah, guns kickin’ like Cantona”

Nowadays is a good take on the current climate of rap, with Spray standing tall against the frauds. Maybe because I’m familiar with what he brings to the game, I would want to hear more of the evolution, but a lot of the new listeners need to know as he looks to reinstate his position as one of the hardest, and this does a bit of both. “UK Rap..I’m the one they used to thank ya’na, cool runnings..but no Sanka darg, You’re more Dhalsim..man a Blanka darg, ya girls pissed cos I blanked her darg..”. There’s definitely more to his rap than just the aggressive drawl that he raps with, and while his rep might overshadow his raps, this year you can expect Mr RTM to make sure that changes.
