Burgeoning UK rapper Mr Asap's story is hinged on youthful exuberance and innate skill. He started off breakdancing in secondary school with his crew gbs and rapping was just a pastime for the young man who did it sparingly. This all changed when he met producer Sensei who gifted him with the right beats to write to. Around the same time, he reconnected with his half-brother who had a home studio and that gave Mr Asap the impetus to take his rap skills seriously.
Now with a handful of singles and a couple of live performances under his belt, he returns with the video for his new single "Heathrow", a mellow piano-driven feel-good track that sees him flexing his lyrical biceps and having fun at the same time. Lines like "My pockets so fat that its pronouns are pounds and kilos/I been getting green like C-notes/Fly like a plane then use yellow tape on the mic, saying caution you're entering Heathrow" set the tone for what is to come from the young artist.
The visual for "Heathrow" is a mix of performance shots of the rapper in different spots. From chilling against gritty backdrops to him flying a plane (yes, he did that just to flex a bit) and basking in his glory, viewers do get a glimpse of his lifestyle.
