Mixtape: Knytro – The Griffin EP

US rapper Knytro shows some encouraging charisma and energy on this four-track debut EP produced by Chase and Status’ record label MTA Records, to which he is signed.

The instrumentals are soulful and diverse and the lyrics definitely have some substance to them. ‘Is this real hip hop shit? Devoured too much I got sick’  he raps on the third track, ‘Guinness’. With so many different rappers nowadays claiming to be real, it’s hard to know what is and isn’t real hip hop and whether it really matters anymore. Knytro certainly seems real enough for me!

Catch Knytro performing at tons of festivals this year, including Love Box, Global Gathering, and Boardmasters and also supporting The Game, Public Enemy and Snoop Dogg!
