Releases of The Week

Here are some of the freshest releases of this week in the UK:


Rising Croydon rapper BZ releases his first single of 2023, ‘Get Paid’. Shot in

Ghana, the Delenn Vaughn-directed video stars BZ playing the role of The African Robin Hood, a heroic outlaw who sets out to provide for his community. BZ takes the creative to a new level as we see cinematic scenes of him on horseback and the song's message of elevating those around him with a poetic narrative. Get Paid provides a golden era beat with a retro taste, letting BZ show off all his proper rap skills.

releases the new single 'WEATHERMAN' featuring Ledbyher.

Reflecting on his influences, ‘Weatherman’ merges nineteen97's eternal love for Garage, Grime, and Hip-Hop with an additional layer of Jersey Drill, produced by frequent collaborator Off Key, with a nod to the 2000s - a decade crucial to his evolving sound.
