Coming a year after its official release, music royalty Skepta - aka Big Smoke - has jumped on the legendary K-Trap classic ‘Warm’ as it enters the Top 40 one year after its release.
Being a timeless track with its hard-bodied nature, ‘Warm’ is finally getting the credit it deserves with mass amounts of support from everyone in the scene both online and offline as it follows in the footsteps of his ‘Last Whip II’ tape that went to No.12 in the official album charts last month.
Produced by M1onTheBeat, ‘Warm’ is the embodiment of day one Trap and has now become one of the biggest street anthems two years in a row. Seeing two of the UK’s most influential rappers come together on one track, this is sure to go down as a classic pushing K-Trap to new heights. Releasing with a star-packed music video there’s a cameo in every frame with the likes of Chip, Young Filly, and Krept & Konan.
With ‘Warm’ firmly cementing itself into the hall of fame, it was only right that the Mercury Award-winning Skepta jumped on to add to its untouchable status. Skepta has re-written the rule book on what it means to be an artist with his pioneering career becoming instrumental in shaping the musical landscape, not to forget his recent venture into the art world resulting in him curating an exhibition at the prestigious Sotheby's. As one of the founding fathers of Boy Better Know and with three top-ten albums under his belt, Skepta’s ability to succeed in all aspects of his life has paved the way for future generations.
K-Trap has been non-stop this year and since the ‘Last Whip II’ came out he has dropped 6 videos, appeared at pop-ups up and down the country and is now due to kick off his 11-date UK tour. Since going independent K-Trap has made his proudest and most versatile music to date coming as the reincarnation of K-Trap.
We are strapped in for this journey with K-Trap and expect to see him continue to grow from strength to strength this year. Will we see you at any of the UK tour dates?
