Review: Jammer: Royal Rumble (Feat. Hyper, D Double E, Footsie, Lethal Bizzle, Bruza, Royal, Face, Jendor, Shorty, Discarda, Blacks and Ears) (Prod. By Mystry)
Royal Rumble – Celebrating 10 years of the seminal grime clash Lord Of The Mics is a feat that few can pull off, with the mastermind Jammer behind the controle. That being said, the Murkle man hasn’t forgotten his musical roots with the new single ‘Royal Rumble’ which features a “who’s who” of grime with Bruza, Ears, Discarda, Lethal Bizzle, Shorty, Blacks, Royal, Face, D Double E, Footsie, and Hyper.
Half of those names will evoke nostalgia for the grime fans that listened in on pirate radio stations or would crowd the youth centres to watch the then emerging artists get their first starts.
Premiered by Noisey (Vice’s music channel), the video showcases twelve of the most elite and famed artists from grime that Jammer called up. All in preparation for the newest LOTM VII which will premiers on 25th of September!
Royal Rumble will download automatically with a pre-order of Lord Of The Mics 7, and sits amongst the 22 tracks on the compilation that features names like Giggs, Shorty, Footsie, D Double E, Flowdan and more, not counting out the clashes as well!
This time feauturing 10 (!) battles instead of the usual 6, Jammer and the LOTM co-founder Ratty have assembled game changing moments such as Jaykae against Kozzie, and the first ever male/female clash with Lady Lykez against Sox, which is not only available on the DVD but an exclusive look at what’s to come as LOTM goes live at the o2 Academy Islington on the 23rd of September.
As Jammer says “I wanted to ignore formula – Who’s says you have to have a chorus?”. In any case, we have to give it up to the man who has consistently given us legendary clashes throughout the years, and this time again with 13 back to back verses of pure hype bars, taglines and 140 BPM!
