After racking up over 10,000 Youtube views in less than a week for the self-directed & edited debut music video, fast-paced rapper Z. LEWIS has today released the official audio for the booming street anthem ‘Get It feat. Talakai’ alongside a big career announcement.
Despite only a handful of demos and Soundcloud uploads to his name, the spitter, born in Hackney – the heart of UK grime culture, has won praise from his peers and none other than triple j Hip-Hop Show host Hau Latukefu as a “problem” – one to watch in 2019.
“GET IT” is a statement in itself, pitting two of the most talented wordsmiths on the east-coast side by side over booming Harvey production, it’s little wonder the track has scored airplay on triple j, FBI Radio and the video a spin on MTV all before it’s official release.
You’ll be hitting rewind on multiple occasions to try catch the wordplay, flow and references of an artist with a world of skill at his fingertips and a debut EP in his not too distant future.
Catch Z. LEWIS live in Sydney this January supporting Brian Fresco from Chicago’s #SAVEMONEY crew (Chance The Rapper, Vic Mensa) alongside Junor at Awful Things 2019 launch event.
