No nonsense, balaclava clad West Londoner, MobI1, takes no prisoners with his hard hitting sound. Emerging onto the music scene 3 years ago after completely rebuilding his life after surviving an explosion, his tracks and music have become not only an expression, but survival- “Music is my therapy, I vibe through the pain”.
Channeling all this into gritty, urban and jagged sounds, the lyrics are real, drawing on his observations and experiences and bursting with attitude and swagger, but also brimming with wit.
Dynamic beats with fast spoken rap, a regional London accent comes through clearly adding personality and giving character. Not my expertise genre-wise but get me some more grime, rap, urban hip-hop.
The backdrop gives built up city feels but an eastern influence is heavy and ever present; giving very upbeat, almost bangers feels.
With rapid and complex beats, sharp edged, distinctive and attention grabbing, a huge presence is felt throughout this track.
