Second in line is Sound of Rum who is ripping up the UK hip-hop scene with Kate Tempest’s mind melting lyrics which split your ear drums with piercing delivery. These are the type of hyperbolic compliments being thrown around the hip-hop water cooler. I must admit her lyrics are incredible with context that can rival the Poet Laureate’s and in that respect she deserves all this praise; however for me in general it is the accompaniment to Kate’s lyrics that are generally languid. Apart from their single Slow Slow, I feel like Kate has let herself down. On the other hand their live performance is meant to be outstanding.
So the stagnant ageing waters which is the American Rap scene has just been doused with chlorine, put your fucking trunks on! Oh yeah, did I mention they skateboard!
