Crafty 893 is killing the scene at the moment and his new EP has just dropped. The EP is called 'Dumb' but let's face it the Croydon MC is far from stupid and this street ready EP shows that in every way.
We've got 9 tracks to dwell in and that makes me happy.
Like What (Duss) -
What an opening to the Dumb EP, 'Like What (Duss)' is a grime classic that will get you involved in every way. From the flow to the beat this one was a great opening track and it gets you prepared for the rest of the EP. Filthy Gears comes through with one of those nostalgic beats and it is a match made in Heaven with Crafty 893's bars.
An interesting flavour to this one with a very unique beat that's so fitted to the streets it's unbelievable. The Beat on this one just reminds me of a sunrise, you know the feeling when you're in the city and the sun reaches the tops of the giant buildings. This song was made for the streets.
by now I know exactly where Crafty 893 is going with the EP and it's straight into changing the scene. Dumb is one of the best tracks on the EP, the beat is something from the archives of old school and the bars come through the speakers at a furious rate. Dumb is the title of the EP, but you're stupid if you think Crafty 893 isn't at the forefront of a grime takeover.
Dank In The Rave -
Who doesn't enjoy getting Dank In The Rave, well, good news you can enjoy it much more now. When you're skanking next to the galdem you can be getting spun out by Crafty 893 and his 'Dank In The Rave' The beat on this one is like a story it has many different moments and sounds.
Do Wot (Do Where) -
The 4th track in a row that begins with D, but trust if anyone comes up against Crafty 893 they're taking a bare defeat. 'Do Wot (Do Where) is one of my favourite songs on the whole EP, purely because it just makes me feel so much energy and the bars are very effective.
Crafty 893 is going full J cole and having no features and I love it. Another thing I love is the song 'Goods' this is such a good vibe that I needed to listen to it on repeat many times. Everything about this song works well. I haven't got a bad word to say about this EP, it's something else and it's a true representation of the streets. 'Goods' is one of the best songs on the EP, I wanna see a video for this one Crafty if you're reading. Make it special my g.
Ymir's Interlude -
A stock song this one fills the spaces and creates a grime vibe. The beat is very much certified and the lyrics are spat with venom. This one has a much softer sound to it and it helps level out the EP. The interludes are a nice touch as well.
Nuh Ready -
As the Dumb EP goes on you realise how much work has gone into the making. from the producing to the lyrics, everything just seems perfectly crafted. This one is especially in your face and Crafty's energy comes at you from every angle.
Sad to say that this is the last song on the EP, because honestly I could listen to Crafty all day. 'Raw' is a pure grime song and your speakers will break if you play this at full volume.
His Black Box has just dropped as well guys. Trust me this one is cold and it's worth a watch and listen.
Massive blessings to Crafty 893 for the making of his Dumb EP. It was a great listen with some great tracks and I can't wait to see Crafty make movements throughout the scene.
