What can I say about the U.K. rap scene that I haven't said before? The incredible speed with which the U.K. has seen their take on rap music beamed across the globe has been breathtaking. The fact that across the world, people are embracing the sound has given a whole new buzz to the scene, and with that, the way in which artists are executing their music is getting more elaborate.
One U.K. talent I've been raving about for a good couple of years now is Oscar #worldpeace. The young Londoner has consistently released a steady stream of hot tracks that captivate everything there is to love about rap music from the U.K. He carries himself as a very humble, down to earth guy, but when it comes to stepping up to the mic, is a savage. His latest video captures three songs from his brand new project Recluse. The visuals are a trippy, wavy look into Oscar's world, as he rides shotgun around the streets of London before jumping out and exploring the hood on foot, giving subtle nods to the places that raised him.
Recluse is a short yet sweet collection of tracks that barely reach the 3 minute mark, always keeping you wanting more from them, with features from Ragz Originale and backed by some spacey sounding instrumentals, Oscar not only shows why he's seen as one of the U.K.'s hottest young artists around, but also why he deserves all of the praise he's been receiving.
