Unknown T, the rampant Homerton rap artist responsible for UK drill’s very most talked-about song “Homerton B”, entered the studio in 2016. Fast forward to right now and his various freestyles and facets has won him the assistance of DJs including Charlie Sloth and Tim Westwood. “Homerton B”, which was initially intended as a Crib Sessions freestyle for Westwood, was uploaded to T’s Insta and the chorus went viral instantaneously. Now at over 7 millions streams, the song is among UK drill’s biggest releases to date. Just recently assisting Nines on tour, Unknown T is now eager to jump on a record with Drake; talking about the future, the Homerton artist states he is without a doubt sitting on over a hundred tracks and rumour has it he may just drop his very first album later this yr. A rapper with aim, propelled by the misfortune he conquered in his youthful years, Unknown T’s realness and dark mood is heavily convincing.
London’s expanding drill scene continues to be the most exhilarating, unforeseeable part of underground sound in the country. Failing to take note for just a week can keep you behind, but ultimately there comes a point where the hype is way too excessive to overlook and Lewisham driller DigDat crossed boundaries a while before. He created a Superior top 20 entry back in November for the remix of “AirForce” with K-Trap and Krept & Konan which, to date, is the highest-charting UK drill record. In the beginning said to have been a passing, copycat fad of its Chicago relative, UK drill now rests on a throne of chart-legit streams and views. No other popular sub-genre music scene currently is gathering new faces at this kind of super speed rate, and DigDat is right at the face of that queue.
Regardless of the track “Nothing To Say”, drill artist SL has been very noticeable within the past 12 months. The previously mentioned record alone turned lots of heads– 3.1 million on Spotify and 3.3 million on YouTube, to remain exact– but that had not been all. “Genes” with Chip gave SL the first, really big jumping-off place in April last year. A presence on Kenny Allstar’s Block Diaries provided us an additional taste of the young emcee’s gifts towards the edge of the year and another backed up what we caught on drops like “Them Boys”, “Tropical” and “Gentleman”; and that’s to say nothing of some heavy-hitting collabs with the likes of P From Lee and Recky. Nevertheless, regardless of dropping a track called “Freestyle” and a mountain of demands for a Mad About Bars or Fire In The Booth session, SL’s holding off on that front. With any luck that transitions in 2019.
