Cut from the cloth of rappers that put authenticity above everything, Skrapz’s immersive conversational flow and compelling backstory have built his reputation as somewhat of a people’s champ; a rapper that we can believe in, and be inspired by. It’s not surprising that heavyweight champ Anthony Joshua was victorious in his bout against Wladmir Klitschko at Wembley Stadium, after walking to the ring blaring the North West Londoner’s ‘They Ain’t Ready’.
The streets have always supported Skrapz, his independent debut album ‘The End of the Beginning’ featured appearances from Nines, Giggs, Wretch 32 and Donae’O, and managed to climb to number 42 on the album charts in 2015. But the stakes have changed since then: with way more focus on UK Rap than ever before, and the Ice City Boys representative’s peers charting in the top ten with equally uncompromising albums, he’s filled with a new fire as he approaches his second album with a brand new team behind him.
This is a standing show.
