Though the likes of P Money are now known internationally, an overwhelming majority of the sound’s rising artists have close ties to London’s underground scene. Before P flies his P Money presents banner in Room Two this Friday, he’s taken the opportunity to round up some of the most exciting talents in the new wave of MCs coming up in the capital right now.
Illegal Tender – Little Dee
One of the most underrated MCs. This track is packed with punchlines that would be easy for an average listener to miss, combined with a catchy flow and spacious beat from Audio Slugs.
Dream – Capo Lee
One of my favourite artists, with consistent releases. Whenever introducing someone to Capo Lee, Dream would be the track I’d choose. Sounds of the streets at its best.
Blatant Truth – Big Zuu
Fast rising grime MC. He’s surrounded by righteous thoughts and opinions. I feel like Zuu is one to watch.
The Convo Pt. 1 – R.A
I’ve been a big fan of R.A since I was 17. He was and is a legend for many south Londoners, including myself. You could even say that he invented the drill style MCing in the last 10 years, without even knowing it.
Know Better – Headie One
A new artist hailing from Tottenham that I’ve come across recently. Definitely one to look out for!
