In a powerful collaboration positioned at the crossroads of grime’s old school and new generation, ‘Back It’ sees Lewisham MC Yizzy tap up one the most influential artists of modern times for an explosive new track.
During what’s been a standout year for the young rapper, with his tune ‘Hustle Hard’ appearing on the FIFA 20 soundtrack, as well as releasing the accomplished ‘Welcome To Grime Street’ EP which included the hard hitting ‘3 Minutes To Live’ via our DMY Recordings label – the rising MC has drawn attention from some of the biggest names in the scene including Wiley, DJ Target and more.
Yizzy’s exponential rise is for all to see on his latest release, going shoulder to shoulder with grime legend Dizzee Rascal for an igniting nod to the UK underground. Produced by Dizzee himself, the track possesses everything you’ve come to expect from the pioneer who created the genre-defining ‘Boy In Da Corner’ album: fast-paced and raw, the two MCs flaunt an abundance of chemistry as they lyrically manoeuvre a pounding grime-meets-dubstep beat.
The track acts as a powerful statement of intent, intersecting grime legend with grime future, while serving to prove to any doubters that the scene is in safe hands.
