#AR15 #ConcreteJungle is being kept under close guard and apart from two tracks, ‘Trapping Aint Dead’ and ‘Out In The Jungle’, that have made it to the internet, the project remains largely under wraps but amid the intrigue and suspense, from the teasers that have dropped so far and the feature list of over 50 acts that are involved, it is already high in the stakes of being the biggest release in UK Rap this year.
‘Helpless’ is the third track to be heard from the 16 track mix-tape and features a massive line-up including Devlin, Wretch 32 and So Solid Crew veteran Swiss describing their tough road to success through their bars. Rebecca Garton's hook ties everything together with some really smooth vocals and S.O.S on production makes ‘Helpless’ timeless, the finger picking guitar reminds us of an old 90's track we've just been reunited with...It's safe to say 'Helpless’ is a solid follow up to ‘Trapping Aint Dead’ and ‘Out in the Jungle’.
Featuring the Section Boyz, ‘Trapping Aint Dead’ hit the 1Xtra playlist, MTV playlist, picked up support across the United States and Europe and has received nearly a million hits online within it’s first two months of release, which is a respectable achievement for any introductory single.
Alwayz Recordings has built a legacy which has helped to oversee the rise to fame for Chip, Wretch 32 and Paigey Cakey along with numerous other acts. In collaboration with GB Records, the two labels have joined together to create a mix-tape built on a foundation that understands the roots and reality of many emcees, commanding a respect that has enabled its founders to place unexpected emcees together to create a project of exciting, interesting and huge proportions. It's normal these days to see a collaboration between artists in the scene...But a collaboration between record labels is a breath of fresh air.
‘Concrete Jungle’ is due for release in August and features the most enviable line up of collaborations, genres and exclusive tracks from 53 UK rappers and emcees including: Skepta, Bashy, Kano, Devlin, Wretch 32, Chip, Swiss, Blade Brown, Snap Capone, Tempa T, Frisco, DVS, Yungen, Sneakbo, Ghetts, Stormzy, Section Boyz, Corleone, Young Ads, Ratlin, Chunks, Prince, Young Spray, Big chess, G-Money , Ramsey GB, Lil Torment, Squeeks, Dubz, Biggs, Fuzay, Loick Essien, Young Teflon, Avelino, Stanna Man, Kyze, Cbiz, J Avalanche, 6ix, Colours Miyagi, Skraps, Bonkaz, Gunna D & Calibar.
