In this update to the From The North Wor Kid playlist, Hull MC Chiedu Oraka is our cover star. His latest single Darcy features DeezKid. Chiedu represents his hometown of Hull to the full, but is a Newcastle United supporter when it comes to football.
Its the Toon which dominates this From The North Wor Kid playlist too with Ronin Clan taking up three spots with Shoshin Noel’s double EP drop and LxngCat’s new solo single T.M.S.E.D.T.I.S.
HB, Jamilah, Rick Fury also make the cut ahead of their support slots for the also-featured Reali-T’s headline show at o2 Academy Newcastle. Kema Kay’s latest single No Games is a new addition.
Manchester maintains a strong presence in the playlist with Bison Briggz, Younganz Fusion and Burstgang remaining in rotation next to Samzy’s Stuck In A Era featuring Fiascoo and Prima.
Middlesbrough’s dominance has dwindled slightly in quantity of Teesside acts but the quality more than makes up for it. Eyeconic’s Spit One Lyric makes another comeback in the wake of his new loose cut Classic and fellow TGF artist Blitz also makes the cut. Law Of Attraction single Man Like Blitz debuts this week.
Doncaster’s first representative Kannan comes into the fold with new single Corner.
Durham’s NATO, Sheffield’s Coco and Leeds’ P Solja also remain featured.
