Nowadays there are so many rappers in the UK, and it’s both a good and bad thing. You’re probably no further that 30 feet from a rapper at any given time in the UK in 2014. One of the biggest problem with this fact is that it creates a lot of fake personalities as people try to emulate others. That’s why someone like Twizzy is so needed. Never ever afraid to be himself he’s just put out another brilliant release, namely ‘Way Beyond The Bullshit’ and it needs your attention. A sort of continuation from his previous effort ‘A Big Bag Of Bullshit’ but a progression in itself.
These 6 tracks contain more individuality than 60 tracks of your mates, mates brother who spits exactly like someone else. Twizzy is clearly a man who writes in his head constantly in his life, making mental notes of the things that are happening around him . ‘Way Beyond The Bullshit’ finds him irked with many things about life and hip hop (actually they’re the same thing innit) and unafraid to tell you exactly what it is that he thinks about these things. His music is how he gets his internal external and how he deals with the bullshit, and I think it’s how he makes it make sense to himself. But listen, he’s also one of the most entertaining rappers to listen to at the moment for many reasons, all of which are again present on this EP. Interesting flows and creativity in his lyrics, mixed with brash attitude and confidence will ensnare your attention and have you actually listening to what dude has to say. With a plethora of releases already under his belt there surely is no doubt of why he’s built a fan base including people the world over.
Cementing Way Beyond is Hutch Beats on the . . .errr. . . beats (look ok I’m sorry I can never be Aimee Lee funny). He’s someone you need to know about because the instrumentals he’s displayed here are as heavy as Twizzys rapping. With catchy samples and a sort of rolling style that fits the flows it’s hard to imagine to many others doing these excellent beats justice in the same way. Simple styled music with its own character, aka music without the bullshit. A very, very good pairing of producer and artist.
Backing up Twizzy with killer features are his Three Headed Beast Cohorts M.A.B and Jinxsta JX. Fucking obviously they kill it on this, always demonstrating why it is they rap together and why it is people pay attention.
Twizzy has given us another one for the collection and he’s done it in his own way, which you can probably tell is something I think is important. Check out his back catalogue on the bandcamp link below and brace yourself for his next release, a full solo album entirely produced by Farma G called ‘Famfoods’. It is sure to be something special.
