Dave is the real deal. I’m old. A now-late 30’s hip hop head and I almost universally hate UK Hip Hop / Grime / Trap, but Dave is the whole freaking show. He’s properly special and as an MC there are few I’d put above him since I started listening to Rap.
Super late to the party but he’s the only UK rapper that I’ve ever felt could stand alongside someone like Nas (I know). I’m prone to speaking in hyperbole and I know the guy wraps every verse in layered metaphors but I’m all in.
Hoping that he stays conscious and doesn’t go full Stormzy.
First single in 3 years from Cas, featuring La Roux, directed by Ed Skrein. He only performs one verse on the song which is a bit disappointing but I'm happy that he's continued with the 80s synth sound featured on earlier tracks like 'Before This' and 'Pat's Earings.'
