Coupled with the delectable vocals of another UK black boy on the rise Loick Essien, Bashy rhymes effortlessly over an enchanting Naughty Boy produced beat, lyrics like ‘no we aren’t hooligans; just young and talented nubians’ display Bashy’s ability to tap into the current mood of the nation just as Black History Month begins. This single reveals a deeper side to the charismatic MC, who is perhaps known more for his classic battles with Wiley and Ghetto.
Black Boys, the first single to be taken off his as yet untitled album suggests that Bashy is developing and honing in on his craft in a more thoughtful and progressive way. With a single this fresh, you have to wonder what the album will be like.
Black Boys is available on digital download only, from I Tunes, napster, 7 Digital and all good digital outlets via Naughty Boy Recordings on 29th Oct 2007.
