Jamieson - Ways To Get Ahead [Video]Kilburn's Jamieson, now based in the South Bronx, NYC, follows up his tribute to his hometown London Freestyle with the new single and video Ways To Get Ahead. Taken from the final instalment of his mixtape trilogy I Came I Saw, the track chronicles the journey he's taken from his days as part of UK hip hop duo Twisted Thoughts with K.I.L.L.A.G.R.A.M. to his move over to the States and the work he's been putting in since arriving there in 2007.

From the launch of his Foreign Exchange mixtape hosted by DJ Whoo Kid, he's enjoyed regular support from DJ Booth, XXL, 2 Dope Boys, This Is 50, Hip Hop DX and a wide range of other key tastemakers across the country. Working with artists Joell Ortiz, Sean Price, Skyzoo and receiving co-signs from Yelawolf, RZA and B-Real, there's little doubt this London born and bred MC has been packing in a mountain of work, and Ways To Get Ahead documents the grind.

The orchestration has a summer feel which is suitable for this grim period of the year and so helps us look beyond this winter grind. The drums do feel a bit ploddy and could have more groove. Jamieson's rap itsself is clearly delivered but on occasion it feels that Jamieson is not keeping with the beat and has to speed up to fit all the syllables in. Regardless, its a nice enough vibe, so peep it below.

The mixtape launches soon ahead of his brand new single I Get Busy, set for international release in the Spring.
