The song’s we been banging through our speakers this week.
1.Kendrick & J Cole – The Remixes
Hip hop’s pioneers at the moment trade each other’s productions and give fans a double treat for Black Friday. J Cole made ‘Alright’ his own and hinted at a new project in february, while K.Dot took on ‘A Tale of 2 Citiez’ and literally bodied the already exciting track. The songs just make fans of both eager for this joint project the two have been talking about for near enough two years now.
2.Idris Elba – Murdah Loves John ft Wretch 32 and Tanika
After flexing his bars on Skepta’s ‘Shutdown’ remix earlier this year, Idris shows the world that he’s not letting up on the music front with his latest offering. This time Idris ushers in Wretch 32 and Tanika for ‘Murdah Loves John’. The slow and laid back production allows Tanika’s voice and Wretch’s lyricism to shine. Idris also performed well on the track and solidified music potentially could be an avenue he could work.[youtube id=”c6BS3Bkc7jQ” align=”center” mode=”normal” maxwidth=”1920″]
3. Samm Henshaw ft Bonkaz – Autonomy (Remix)
The already released ‘Autonomy’ from Samm’s ‘The Sound Experiment’ project released in September gets a re-do with rising rapper Bonkaz. The pair definitely collaborate for sound which fits so organically. Both make a truly engaging listen and push the listener into deeper thought and reflection. Bonkaz here truly demonstrates his diverse pallet as a lyricist.[youtube id=”vjS25LF-XPE” align=”center” mode=”normal” maxwidth=”1920″]
