Potter Payper
Potter Payper, the Barking-bred rapper, left an indelible mark on the MOBO stage on February 8th, 2024, as he gracefully accepted the well-deserved award for his 2023 project, Real Back In Style, where he announced his latest project "Thanks For Hating" solidifying Payper's legacy in UK rap folklore, sparking lively discussions on Rap Twitter.

Thanks For Hating, the sequel to 2021's Thanks for Waiting, is a gritty road soap opera with 18 tracks featuring collaborators like Headie One, Nafe Smallz, Mozzy, and Clavish. Payper maintains his East London spitter essence while adding in a unique twist with features like ADMT on "Midas Touch".


The beats are razor-sharp, the lyrics are heavy, and the overall ambiance is uniquely Potter Payper. While some may find it less compelling than its predecessor, one thing is clear: Thanks For Hating is undeniably a standout mixtape from Potter's diverse discography.



Kickstarting with the assertive "Inaugural," flowing seamlessly into tracks like "Trench P (London City)" and "Midas Touch," showcasing rattling hi-hats and booming basslines. Payper's intentions are clear—he's not out to prove himself; he's honing his artistic artillery.


Standout cuts like "59901R" with Headie One and "Sinaloa Cartel" exhibit Payper's lyrical prowess, with the latter adding a Mexican twist. Collaborations with Clavish, Mozzy, and Daff delve into 2010s American rap nostalgia, creating a timeless vibe.


The title track, featuring Mozzy, is a highlight, with Payper's lyrical conviction and showmanship leaving an unforgettable impact. Despite the mixtape's lack of polish, it remains modern and forward-thinking in its rhyming techniques.



Potter Payper's "Thanks For Hating" is not just a mixtape; it marks a new chapter in his career, emphasising themes of redemption and control. With a stellar lineup of artists, Payper delivers vivid narratives of his life experiences, showcasing his unwavering commitment to the craft.


Following the success of "Thanks For Waiting," the mixtape raises the bar, exploring themes of childhood, loss, and streetwise narratives. With the added visual treatment for tracks like "Midas Touch" and "Trench P (London City)", Potter elevates the project to a new level.


As an award-winning British rapper, Payper continues to assert his influence, and "Thanks For Hating" is a testament to his talent and dedication.
