The UK is so heavily focused on it’s upcoming grime and drill scene, that sometimes unfortunately, original and unique hip-hop is swept under the carpet. We’d suggest having a spring clean and getting straight down to business with Benny Mails. The South London rapper released his debut mixtape Aware towards the end of last year, solidifying himself as one to watch in the process.
New single ‘Buried Alive’ is one that resonates with me and undoubtedly many other people living in the big smoke. According to Benny, the track is “about the pressure of needing the amount of money you need in London to survive, and on the other hand not letting it become something that’s overwhelming emotionally. It’s about not allowing yourself to be stuck in the grip of debt.”
