Stylah - Prologue

Stylah – Prologue

Stylah is one of the strongest emcees in the British rap scene, and if this video is anything to go by, one of the most respected.

the never ending ebb and flow of quality UK hip hop could well be poised to cascade into 2011

It’s a powerful statement; unity is as good as it’s been in the UK, and this video, along with the reemergence of the many faces in it, hints that the never ending ebb and flow of quality UK hip hop could well be poised to cascade into 2011. See how many all stars you can name in the video!

Stylah – Killa

The first single taken from Stylah’s Treading Water LP, Killa featuring Smiler is a double time romp with a sobering message. Both Stylah and Smiler come correct over a fittingly Wild West sounding beat, Stylah breaking out his immaculate, relentless double time flow whilst Smiler complements perfectly with a more laid back pace in his section.

skirting between light hearted braggadocio swagger and a lament of the amount of ‘killer’ claims in the scene, the message is compounded by some disturbing scenes in the video

Each skirting between light hearted braggadocio swagger and a lament of the amount of ‘killer’ claims in the scene, the message is compounded by some disturbing scenes in the video which juxtapose childish horseplay of guns made from fingers with the effect of real gunshot wounds – a simple tactic, which shocks the point that the attitudes to gun crime are cultivated through an unrealistic representation of the severity of the issue, across. At least, that’s what it did to me.
