I posted a video of this kid killin’ it on Tim Westwood on my tumblr a little while back. He’s from Scarborough in Toronto’s East End (aka where I used to dwell until I made the jump downtown) but he spits like a UK MC and is in fact apparently the only non-UK (non-London??) MC accepted in the grime scene. He’s already been on tour with Wiley and just finished an opening slot for Rae & Ghost’s headlining NXNE show last Sunday. This is the first video from his forthcoming mixtape album, a track featuring him going in over Jamie XX‘s steel drum-powered, ethereal-sounding “Far Nearer” track. An ode to lyricists everywhere with their pens and notebooks (Canadians know)?
