The UK rap scene is flourishing. With their appeal stretching far and wide, rappers such as Giggs, Skepta and Kano have seen their own albums in 2016 reach unparalleled heights in terms of success. Whilst the majority of rap connoisseurs would all point to London as the epicenter of the UK rap waves, another city further up north is holding it's own with the heavyweights. Manchester may be associated with classic bands such as The Smiths, Oasis and Joy Division, but right now their hip hop scene is bubbling over with talented rappers, producers and collectives.
One rapper leading the charge in Manchester, is Sleazy F Baby, and his latest track "Dat Real" is a prime example of why he's so highly thought of.
Backed by a bangin' 808 laden beat provided by Mac Real, Sleazy comes through with tough, raw delivery, mixed with clever wordplay and hard hitting lyricism. all of this is tied up by a solid flow, riding the beat perfectly.
