We premiere the latest offering from Nick Brewer, the third track to be released from his ‘Four Miles Further’ EP.
Island Records’ recent signing Nick Brewer is set to make his mark on the music scene this Summer, with the release of his EP ‘Four Miles Further’. This 6 track project sees 23 year old Nick collaborate with some of the UK’s most brilliant emerging music acts, including Little Simz, JP Cooper, George The Poet, Max Marshall, and Naomi Scott.
Nick Brewer’s collaboration with JP Cooper on ‘Miss Online Superstar’ is as poignant as it is breath-taking, with a message of longing, and tension, that is somehow made palpable and acceptable. Fellow Island Records signee JP Cooper’s vocals soar over the soft rap flow, inviting us into a sensual and sexy RnB riff that promises to get your head bopping.
A face of the next generation, Nick Brewer is a wordsmith, flying the flag for the UK Hip Hop and Rap scene. A new generation of rapper, Nick shares informed lyrical content; he is conscious of his surroundings; society and culture. He is conscious of having the perfect medium to share his opinions. He is conscious of ensuring these opinions are heard. We sat down with him to have a chat about his top 5 all-time favourite verses.
1. Big L – 98 Freestyle.
“Big L is one of my favourite rappers. If this really was a freestyle then it’s the greatest ever. Even if it isn’t a freestyle it’s still an incredible verse”.
“In my opinion, Joe Budden’s verse on this track is the best rap feature verse on an RnB track. Flow, delivery, character, everything. Well done Joe”.
“I could’ve easily just picked 5 Nas verses. For me, Nas’s storytelling and ability to paint a picture with lyrics is second to none. . The picture he paints in the 1st verse of what his hometown’s like is so vivid. One of the best to ever do it”.
“Eminem mastered Hip Hop in a way very few others have. His ability to make fun of himself and everything around him, coupled with the fact that he has the best flow ever (in my opinion) has made me a fan. The 3rd verse on this track displays all of that; flow, humour, craziness”.
“I was introduced to hip hop at a young age by my older cousin, and Enter The Wu-Tang was one of the first albums he ever gave me. I think i memorised every verse on this album, and this verse by Inspectah Deck is just one that always come back to me. Flow and character in the verse is just on point”.
Nick will be playing at The Old Queen’s Head in Islington on the 26th of June
