Norwich (The Flatlands) based MC Reds pka Redeye from Chronic Redeye is here with his Lifelines track which is produced by FarmaBeats on a guitar / Cosmic Gypsies vibe. This is not bubblegum rap. This is a realistic and uplifting track in which Reds describes how he tries to live right and clean.
Suspence is back with a re-work of Godnose. This is the 2021 version with production from Farma G. Dancehall vibes and raucous big drums make for a hot track. Suspence references many past memories and crosses with daily life in 2021. Heavy ish.
