Soundtracking a woozy late night trip through London, Blay Vision explores a futuristic new style on his latest offering ‘Realist Cuz’.

The Tottenham rapper-producer cut his teeth working with some of the most influential names in grime such as Jme, Skepta and P Money, to name a few. Having established himself as a key player in the capital’s rap scene, his knack for both production and bars have laid the foundations for him to take his craft to new levels.

On ‘Realist Cuz’, released via DMY Artists, Blay takes an inward-looking stance as he utilises his hooky melodic structures to navigate his conscious and subconscious thoughts. According to the rapper, it’s “a track where I’m having a conversation with myself, a bunch of thoughts rounded up into a conversation in my head.”

The sparse accompanying visuals are a nod to the introspective quality of the track. Produced by Blay himself and directed by Adam Horton and Henry Hewitt, we see multiple versions of Blay interacting with each-other, offering an insight into the multiple layers of his mind.
