JP's Underground Tracks of the Month
BBC Introducing Scotland's Ally McCrae gets the low down from Joseph JP Patterson, as he reveals his top three underground tracks.
3. Blizzard – Neckbreaker
My third track of the month comes from Blizzard, an MC based in Manchester. I have to be honest with you, I've known about this guy for a long time but I've never really followed his movement, well, until now. Being the battle rapper that he is, Blizzard's witty character comes across in his delivery, and that's what really caught my attention on Neckbreaker. He also produced the track, so he gets two thumbs up from me!
2. Kozzie – Yeah!
My second choice this month comes from one of the biggest MCs in grime right now, Kozzie. His new single, Yeah!, is produced by Birmingham's Preditah and we get to hear the south Londoner do what he does best, which is boasting about how great he is! (Laughs) But on a serious note, he's an interesting guy to listen to, just down to the way he attacks the beat alone.
1. TRACK OF THE MONTH: Sleepin' Giantz (Rodney P, Zed Bias & Fallacy) – Badungdeng
My number one pick of the month comes from the legendary Rodney P, Zed Bias and Fallacy – who are now known as the newly-formed group, Sleepin' Giantz. I came across Badungdeng when I was editing an interview with Rodney P for MTV UK (The Wrap Up), and my house skank just took over! (Laughs) Rodney P mentioned that their album will be a mix of D&B, house, dubstep and hip-hop, and I'm definitely looking forward to seeing what they do to the UK music scene later this year and beyond.
