You know the drill!

#GW20 Groundworks Cypher 2020: Unknown T, Digga D, M1llionz, KO, Teeway, DA, Tugz, V9 & more

Let's kick things off with this pirate radio-style epic cypher. There haven't been many of these in drill as far as I know and I would love to hear more because this is a MAZZA. Lots of youngsters involved too.

M24 - Is It

Unknown T - WW2

Unknown P - Daily Duppy - Big up Felix, big up Monty, how many nights did we spend in the bando reading Emily Bronte

Ghetts feat Stormzy & Ghetto — Skengman - Stormz goes in hard on this one. Not sure why Ghetts felt the need to bring back the Ghetto moniker though.

Chip - 10 Commandments - Chip sends for Stormzy for the third time without reply. I don't see how he can get away with staying quiet.

Russ Millions x Buni - Plugged In W/Fumez The Engineer

CB - No Lies Freestyle

#OFB Lowkey X RV X Dezzie X Kush X Bradz - Which One?

Fizzler - AHA MHMM

Looking forward to the Ghetts album, between Skengman above and this:
Ghetts - No Mercy ft. Pa Salieu & Backroad Gee

vcrash, Wednesday, 3 February 2021 21:27 (five months ago) link

Feeling it. I love how worked up Backroad Gee gets. Him and Pa work really well together.


Chip - 100K (ft. MoStack) - Chip is on a great run of form right now. MoStack coming with all the flows.

FKA twigs, Headie One, Fred again.. - Don't Judge Me - Headie trying something a bit different with a conscious one. I was hoping to hear FKA Twigs doing a bit of drill but it wasn't to be.

M1LLIONZ - BADNIS - M1llionz's Twitter handle is LAGGA BARSE, which I can't help but feel is a poor choice.

Kwengface x PS Hitsquad - Petrol Station - PS says 'Brexit, I'm like a Tory' for some reason :(

this isn't from the UK but let's pretend it is. the commonwealth!!

from montreal:

sean gramophone, Thursday, 18 February 2021 15:34 (five months ago) link

Feeling it! Commonwealth drillers are welcome here. I didn't know you got English speakers in Montreal though.

Headie One - Siberia ft. Burna Boy - here's another Commonwealth citizen getting in on the fun.

Digga D x AJ Tracey - Bringing It Back

Ay Em - Jon Snow (ft. BackRoad Gee) - wavy drill

Jordan - Daily Duppy - Mancunian drill. Jordan's better than Aitch, don't @ me

OFB - Daily Duppy - all about the second beat on this one.

one of the wild things about having kids is they tell you about new music.

this is going around. i like it! 15 and 17 yo!

Li'l Brexit (Tracer Hand), Monday, 22 February 2021 23:02 (five months ago) link

i’ve also been introduced to central cee. this is from last year but it’s new to me. great sample, great flow.

Li'l Brexit (Tracer Hand), Monday, 22 February 2021 23:04 (five months ago) link

lyrics kinda eh - maybe he can up his game - but i still like it when it comes on

Li'l Brexit (Tracer Hand), Monday, 22 February 2021 23:08 (five months ago) link

Saw this new Jada album of minute-long shorties in my Bandcamp feed earlier today, and am really enjoying it so far--
more of a leftfield boom-bappy ting, maybe somewhere btw MIKE and Dean Blunt if I had to pigeonhole it
(had also previously cherrypicked a couple tracks from his 2020 EP blitz [prod. redLee] as JADASEA):

Kangol In The Light (Craig D.), Monday, 22 February 2021 23:24 (five months ago) link

Lads this new Ghetts album is pretty great, probably deserves its own thread except at the moment all I have to say is this is pretty great, Little Bo Peep is stunning

The Scampo Fell to Earth (Noodle Vague), Friday, 26 February 2021 08:55 (five months ago) link

i listened to it once the other day and it sounded fine but didn't really understand the rave reviews it's been getting? will have to get it another try

ufo, Friday, 26 February 2021 09:06 (five months ago) link

That last track is so strong and covers so much ground it maybe elevates the whole experience

The Scampo Fell to Earth (Noodle Vague), Friday, 26 February 2021 09:27 (five months ago) link

Love Skengman!

'89 Sunday lunch, pint, fag, plate full of munch
Fist full of rings, pricey punch
It ain’t Pimms o'clock when a bloke gets slumped
Out in cunch
'91 had a big old bando
Two Guard dogs, Dave and his Rambo
He's in the can like Rubicon mango

That explains that then. I don't follow US rap at all. That's a good one though.

Russ Millions x Tion Wayne - Body - The first drill song to go number one in the UK

Little Simz - Woman ft. Cleo Sol - Little Simz is back with a new album out soon. This one was posted in the Sault thread but it's good enough to get posted in here as well.

Arrdee - Plugged In W/Fumez The Engineer - Fumez has been carrying the drill scene with his vids this year, and young Arrdee's making a bit of a name for himself. I like how he says that he would say fuck the opps but he doesn't have any opps because everyone loves him.

(3x3) E1 X DRILLA X ZT #AFG​ - Plugged In W/Fumez

P.S Hitsquad - Big Steppa

that Little Simz track - "Woman" - is fantastic. But I would say that, it's very Missy.

Krept & Konan present: “Olé (We Are England '21)” x S1lva x M1llionz x Morrisson - Not sure if the FA or Southgate would want to be associated with this. Better than Three Lions though.

Dave - Clash (ft. Stormzy) - Here's a new one from Dave ahead of his forthcoming second album. Features an indirect at Chip from Stormz.
