From the familiar scenes of south the famous Station Rd, or take a stroll along the renowned Coldharbour Lane, you will undoubtedly embark upon what could only be described as a haven of true multiculturalism.
In recent times the area has survived a bombardment of gentrification yet in spite of that it has still managed to maintain its authentic Brixtonian effervescence.
In Ty‘s forthcoming anthem “Brixton Baby” featuring Mpho this song truly encapsulates the very spirit of the area. Many have been able to experience and thus envisage but few have been able to adequately convey with the combination of this track and video, Ty is definitely amongst the rare few.
He takes the listener on a guided tour of his native area, but paints a picture that the media intentionally fails to highlight. Spoken quite eloquently with virtuous overtones in a way that only Ty knows how to do.
Mpho adds some touches to a stew of what is undoubtably very seasoned. This simply is a beautiful track that not only Brixtonions, but London and the UK as a whole should be proud of.
