For many of us, lockdown was very depressing and almost always repetitive, and one of the main things that kept us in high spirits was listening to music. Whether it was R&B, Hip-Hop or Gospel – they made us feel happy; however, there was one artist that consistently provided us with hit after hit, Tottenham based drill artist, Abra Cadabra (22).
Abra Cadabra has had a very indifferent career prior to this year, with his music releases being very stagnant. My own personal first memory of Abra was his 2016 [email protected] Box Freestyle, which could arguably be one of his best to date.
Fast-forwarding to the present day, his impact within the current music scene has arguably been second to none. His infamous deep voice, along with the way he attacks the beats that are given to him are very provocative for all listeners.
Personally, he has been one of my favourite artists this year, and if you don’t know much of him, then I’m sure you have heard his popular song ‘On deck’, with it receiving a huge amount of approval from fans and peers.
Abra (aka, Mr. No problem No problem) is a well-known figure within the OFB contingent, which also features the likes of, Headie One and RV, all gaining praise in the music scene. Honestly speaking, I wasn’t sure if his comeback would be anything to talk about, but he is one of the hottest rappers right now.
How could he cap of this year in style? An album, and what an album he has given us. Titled, ‘Product of my environment‘. The 14 song-filled tape is an amazing body of work, it can be likened to an open book, and he is using music to tell his story.
There are only 4 features: Krept & Konan, Kush, D-Block Europe and Dappy. Along with this, he gained the help of many talented producers, including, Quincytellem and M1OnTheBeat, who have worked with the likes of: Drake, M Huncho and Headie One.
I would definitely recommend this to every drill fan, as he did not disappoint in the slightest – it is a very strong project that has replay value.
Now we wait to see what he has on store for next year…
‘Product of my environment’ is out now on all digital platforms.
