BeckMilli is the rising South-London name who hits the nail firmly on the head with her latest release, ‘Gotham’.
It is a track about BeckMilli’s home town, London, and she speaks for the current generation while expressing a motivational message. The rapper often blows her own trumpet but who can blame her, if you have it, why not flaunt it? Furthermore, her words tell us that she means business and will do whatever it takes to the get to the top of the game.
Musically, her dark and subdued influences pave the way. Also, I relish how she brings something fresh to the grime genre, and she blends plenty of styles into one. It is not a prototype, I have been witnessing many other names following a similar trend, but it adds to the work which many of the greats have already started. Nevertheless, will BeckMilli stick with this style going forward? Only time will tell, but it would not surprise me to come across an album with a load of similar tracks.
Towards the latter, BeckMilli wraps up her story with confidence. She tells it how it is, which is often the best quality of a modern rapper. Furthermore, her words are meant not just for those who share a similar upbringing but also for anybody looking to be the best they can be. As a result, it is the perfect new year message, and her expression of optimism is motivational arrives as a time when we need it the most.
