Lady Lykez is back with new single, “Chat 2 Your Man“, a fun & cheeky lyrical onslaught with a positive message at its core. The track was produced by musician/producer duo OJ & Fridel, who brought the track to life in the studio playing live trumpets, trombone, & guitar on the record.
The message of the record is highly relatable, whether it’s through a personal experience, or seeing it happen with close friends, which is how Lykez herself got inspired.
“The track came about after I spoke to a friend who had got herself into a situation. She was seeing a guy who told her he was single, and then out of the blue she started getting angry & abusive phone calls from his ‘babymother’. My friend told her, ‘it’s got nothing to do with me, I didn’t know you were with him, so you need to talk to him not me’. That gave me the basic idea of the track, and I think everyone can relate to this in one way or another. A lot of the time the women don’t stick together & the guy just gets away with it. At the end of the day, it takes two to tango!!! There is a serious message behind the track but I just wanted to have fun with it at the same time.”
The tongue-in-cheek video for the single really brings the message to life, and tells the story of a group of girls- the Ex, Side Chick, the Wife, & Baby Mum -all fighting over this one guy. He’s not been faithful to any of them & won’t settle down but they don’t realize it at first. After Lady Lykez’s words of wisdom, the girls realize they shouldn’t be fighting over this guy who clearly has no respect for them & join together
Continuing to fly the flag for the ladies, Lady Lykez is set to make history this year as the 1st female to clash against a guy on the upcoming “Lord Of The Mics 7“. Her clash opponent is MC Sox, who has previously battled on LOTM against Kozzie.
“I asked Jammer to send me a guy to clash & he sends me a boy that might as well be a girl. I just hope he doesn’t cry on the day…”
Lady Lykez will be clashing live on September 23rd at Islington Academy.
“Make sure you come down to check it out as you don’t want to miss Sox choke live on stage!!!”
Her clash on LOTM comes about following her track “Nobody Can” which she dropped at the start of the year. Calling out a whole host of male MCs challenging them at their own game, the message behind the track was clear, Lykez wants to be classed in the same category as the guys, and she was ready to take any of them on bar for bar!!!
Lady Lykez blew onto the scene in 2013 with breakthrough track “Eurgh!” with her sick flows & fast raps the track garnered a lot of attention & support from media & DJs. Her follow up, controversial bouncy bumper track “I Love My Butt“, racked up over 750k views on YouTube & national radio support, and firmly established Lykez as an artist on the rise.
Anyone that doubted Lykez’s lyrical ability was swiftly silenced by her “Fire In The Booth” performance for Charlie Sloth on Radio 1, which dropped to rave reviews.
She followed that up with the explosive track “Psycho” on which she captured the proximity between the passions of love & hate with her exhilarating lyrics & drew on her ‘inner psycho’ for the video.
With her real passion being performing live, Lykez has graced the stage at some great events, including Reading/Leeds festival, Glastonbury, has supported the likes US rapper Eve, Method Man, & Redman, and has toured across the UK twice taking in cities including Bristol, Derby, Belfast, Birmingham, Cardiff, London, & Southend.
Despite her hectic schedule, Lady Lykez continues to be actively involved with her on-going charity work for Only Connect & travels throughout the London boroughs on a monthly basis to work with ex-offenders and youths at risk of crime where she uses her music & lyrics to inspire & motivate. She also regularly works in youth clubs across London holding workshops on lyric writing, as well as deeper issues affecting young girls today.
