Making its debut via Link Up TV ‘We Run The Roads’ takes us to the stomping grounds of inner city London. Showcasing the realities of the community he depicts his experience of living in the capital. Within short proximities of tourist hotspots such as Buckingham Palace, he contrasts between those places and where he calls home.
Channelling the frustrations of the stark, cold realities of inner city life, Craze 24 commentates on survival on the crime fuelled and poverty stricken roads. Powerful and ominous with his lyrical delivery on the Dukus beat, Big Ven’s feature on the deep, meodic and soulful hook compliments Craze 24’s punchy, biting lyricism.
With his roots firmly laid in the London streets, Craze 24 has had a fruitful rap career. Rising from foundational platforms such as Lord of the Mics and Channel U, he has since gone on to perform alongside the likes of Nas, The Game, Ghostface Killah, 50 Cent, Lil Wayne, Busta Rhymes and Wu Tang Clan, being heavily documented and supported along the way. His recent performance at Wembley alongside Ghetts, Big Narstie and Devlin for 100% Grime was a sell-out and his musical contributions to over 60 mixtapes has ensured his place in the UK Rap scene has always remained respected.
With preparations well underway for the release of ‘It Is What It Is’, Craze 24 recently revealed the features joining him on his EP’s tracklist. Stylo G, Xyclone, D Double E, P Money, Roadside Gs, Loick Essien, Ruth Brown, Koder, Big Ven, Lazee, KLR, Nija Boy, K Muni, Sick Man & Dotty are all present with Stylo G, Xyclone, Lazee, KLR, Roadside Gs all featuring on the remix for ‘We Run The Roads’ too.
‘We Run The Roads’ is the first record released from forthcoming EP ‘It Is What It Is’, set to drop later this year.
