Frisco brings back the BBK collective on this gorgeous grime posse cut "Red Flag"
You can always count on BBK to drop a grime banger. All solid mc's in their own right, is great to see them over production by up and coming producer Trooh Hippi.
But who had the best verse? Well let's go one by one.
After a great hook by Frisco, Skepta starts his verse perfectly and let's off one of the most greezy bars of the year
"I hope you trust in your friendships
Gonna need a full clip, something' extended
No, I am not your father
If I gotta put him in care, better know that's something' intensive"
Jammer further proves why he's an underrated spitter in grime. He rarely delivers a bad feature and can drop gems with an energetic flow
"Doin' this ting from the start, send them man shells like Mario Kart
Them man are gassed like when Mario starts
Tell him I'm Wario's darg
The beef is vegan, the Haribo's aren't"
Jme for me gives the most standout verse on the record. Mixing wordplay and personality that makes his verses so catchy
"Bad boy crep, manna got bareBedroom full up of SKAir (Trust)But I don't wear them out, not 'cause I don't wanna wear them out
But I don't wanna wear them out, ya get me?"
Frisco for me is the most consistent BBK mc on posse cuts, always giving a top 3 verse. Plus when he enters that "Frisco flow" few can stop him
"Man can't ring me and ask where I know his girl from, man better hang up and redial
BBK 'til I'm old and senile (Come on)
Big money sound, got the pounds on speed dial (Oh, yeah)"
Shorty is usually a strong opener or closing verse and while I wasn't the biggest fan on this record, he's still charismatic and his flow is fluid and wavy
"Done shows in Europe, been Hong Kong (Long time)
After the dance man got a wonton (Ni hao)
You can't keep up, manna long gone (Manna gone)
Way too elegant
Ten years deep, still relevant
Leave no evidence
When we walk in the room, man make space for the elephants"
Trooh Hippi needs props on producing one of the best grime instrumentals of the year, that I know will be remixed and freestyled by many in the next coming month's
All the mc's attack the beat in their own signature ways that shows the unique quality of BBK as a collective. It's great to see even after 10 plus year's in the game these vets are still inspired to create grime classics for new fan's to enjoy.
