Video: Jehst X Strange U – Dolph Lundgren

Huddersfield originating, London based UK hip hop icon Jehst links up with  Strange U (rapper Kashmere and producer Dr Zygote) for a dark, grungy track fresh from the dungeons of rap for this new one ‘Dolph Lundgren’.

Dr Zygote’s production is a stripped back splicing of organic bass and drums with a minimalist synth line, perfectly complimenting Jehst and Kashmere’s alternative rhymes, which are laced with references to anything from the Higgs Boson particle to Lea & Perrins sauce!!!

“It’s like a jungle sometimes / It makes you wonder / Who’s really behind the red lightning and the thunder?”

Released by long standing UK Hip Hop label YNR productions, this track provides the perfect antidote to most yuppy mainstream rap that is prevalent today. The hard hitting, no gimmicks style of 90s US Hip Hop partners perfectly with a form of lyrical madness that is undeniably UK’s own.

The video matches the song’s level of intense mania, with vintage drawings providing the back drop for dismembered lips to rap over. Not only is this a big track that is not to be missed by UK Hip Hop heads, but its also a strong statement of intent and identity from the UK scene, that’s always had to move in the US’s shadow.
