808INK – Q’d Up

Big up to Ivan from Boom Bap festival for putting me on to these guys. Out of London, they mix up new school US Rap styles, especially the production from 808 Charmer, with a more UK edged flow from rapper Mumblez Black Ink. Lots of UK acts have jumped on this sound, but most sound too lazy with it. Mumblez still carries plenty of energy almost touching on Grime at times. I’ve just downloaded their album Billy’s Home so gonna check that later. They already have a couple of new tracks up on their Soundcloud that aren’t on it though, including Peach which you can hear below.
