Pick ‘n’ Mix // Mont Jake – Pearly Cloud ft. Assassin & Bryn the First

Few of these in our London skies this afternoon (sort of)…

That track features Jamaican rapper Assassin – who most recently featured on Kendrick Lamar’s “The Blacker The Berry”, as well as appearing on Kanye West’s 2013 album “Yeezus”. The single also marks a debut appearance from London based 16-year old MC, Bryn The First. Nice. And if you wanna know a touch more about the man himself, you can read Jasper’s NMT on him HERE



Jasper’s New Music Takeaway // Jackson Reed / Failr / Slowes / JonoJosh

Cool? Good…
