#AR15’s ‘#ConcreteJungle‘ is being kept under close guard & apart from two tracks, “Trapping Ain’t Dead” & “Out In The Jungle“, that have made it to the internet, the project remains largely under wraps but amid the intrigue & suspense, from the teasers that have dropped so far & the feature list of over 50 acts that are involved, it is already high in the stakes of being the biggest release in UK Rap this year.
“Helpless” is the third track to be heard from the 16-track mixtape & features an impressive, all-star cast with Devlin, Wretch 32, & So Solid Crew veteran Swiss all getting deep with their lyrics, as they describe their tough road to success. The sweet sound of Rebecca Garton on the hook & S.O.S. on production makes “Helpless” one of the many gems on the impressive tracklisting & undoubtedly will become a firm favorite to many.
“Helpless” is a solid follow up to “Trapping Ain’t Dead” & “Out In The Jungle“.
Featuring the Section Boyz, “Trapping Ain’t Dead” hit the 1Xtra playlist, MTV playlist, picked up support across the United States & Europe, and has received nearly a million hits online within it’s first two months of release, which is a respectable achievement for any introductory single.
As one of the first successful independent record labels within the UK urban music scene, Alwayz Recordings has built a legacy which has helped to oversee the rise to fame for Chip, Wretch 32, & Paigey Cakey along with numerous other acts. In collaboration with GB Records, the two labels have joined together to create a mixtape built on a foundation that understands the roots & reality of many emcees, commanding a respect that has enabled its founders to place unexpected emcees together to create a project of exciting, interesting, & huge proportions.
‘Concrete Jungle’ is due for release in August and features the most enviable line-up of collaborations, genres, & exclusive tracks from 53 UK rappers & emcees including: Skepta, Bashy, Kano, Devlin, Wretch 32, Chip, Swiss, Blade Brown, Snap Capone, Tempa T, Frisco, DVS, Yungen, Sneakbo, Ghetts, Stormzy, Section Boyz, Corleone, Young Ads, Ratlin, Chunks, Prince, Young Spray, Big chess, G-Money, Ramsey GB, Lil Torment, Squeeks, Dubz, Biggs, Fuzay, Loick Essien, Young Teflon, Avelino, Stanna Man, Kyze, Cbiz, J Avalanche, 6ix, Colours Miyagi, Skraps, Bonkaz, Gunna D, & Calibar.
