The term 'legendary' gets thrown about far too easily these days, especially when it comes to music. It's always a bit of a taboo subject amongst fans as to who exactly deserves their name to be held in such high regard, and I'm sure many arguments have broke out amongst yourselves as to who is legendary and who isn't.
When it comes to the UK rap scene, there are a handful of emcee's that would be considered as pioneers of a growing sound such as grime. The likes of East London's Kano and Ghetts would definitely be up there, and today we were treated to a brand new track that featured both of these storied rappers. "The Kings Speech" is a four minute assault that showcases the raw passion and aggression both Kano and Ghetts spit with, and proves once and for all (if any closure was needed) why they are seen as two of the best emcee's the UK has ever produced. Lyrically both KA and Ghetts come through with some real gritty bars, with Kano arguably spitting the best verse, where he talks about being king of the UK, and being an huge influence for a lot of emcee's emerging from the scene in the present day.
You can stream and download "The Kings Speech" below, and be sure to keep it locked to EARMILK for the latest from Kano and Ghetts!
