Ghetts and Kojey Radical Team For Powerful Collaboration Black Rose

Thursday, 30 August 2018 Written by Helen Payne

Ghetts and Kojey Radical have released a video for their collaboration Black Rose.

Ghetts, one of grime’s flagship MCs, takes the reins for the verses as he answers a question posed by his daughter: why aren’t there any dolls in the shop that look like she does?  His anthemic bars form a social commentary that explores intersectional feminism in a society that marginalises rather than encourages love and self-worth. It’s personal, complex, and powerful.

Meanwhile, Kojey Radical takes a softer, more restrained approach while he sings “I can’t cry those tears for you again” over a subtle guitar line. The video for Black Rose is shot completely in monotone, and packs a punch: “Baby, you keep doing you. Don’t let the world ruin you.”

Black Rose is the first single to be taken from Ghetts' new album ‘Ghetto Gospel: The New Testament’, due for release on September 14 through GIIG / Caroline International.

Noname - Room 25 (Album Review)
Mon 17 Sep 2018
You get the impression Noname still doesn't realise how immensely likeable she is – both as an artist and a human. There was much about the Chicago rapper's 2016 mixtape 'Telefone' that was impressive in a conventional sense, whether it was her smooth, jazz-inflected flows, impeccable taste in neo-soul production or ability to create crystal-clear imagery. But what listeners connected with most was her magnetic personality. More specifically, they bought into her compassionate worldview and propensity to derive hope from the bleakest of topics or circumstances.

Brockhampton - Iridescence (Album Review)
Wed 26 Sep 2018
With their inclusive ethos, motivational lyricism and taste for avant-garde pop production, Brockhampton have proved over the past year and half that they're the hip hop collective OFWGKTA should have been. That comparison might seem trite from an artistic perspective, but it fits because of the impact both groups have had on a predominantly young audience. But where OFWGKTA had a misanthropic streak, Brockhampton's messaging is more wholesome and empowering.
