In a bid to remind the world, once again, that there's more to grime than London, Red Bull have brought together some of the finest MCs the rest of the country has to offer. There's Eyez (who hand-picked the artists and mixed the tape) and Dubzy from Derby, R.I.O from Manchester, Sheffield's Kannan, Snowy and Mez from Nottingham, KamaKaze from Leicester and Dialect from Leeds; all of whom jumped on the mixtape in various combinations. Our highlight from the tape, however, is "C.R.E.A.M.", featuring Eyez, Mez, Dialect and KamaKaze with a beat provided by Mistakay. As you might expect from the name, Mistakay's taken the iconic piano-led Wu-Tang beat and flipped it on its head to give us an icy grime roller. From there, the four MCs take turns lacing the beat with bars about getting searched by the police, social media, football and everything else we go through in daily life but told with humour and references to comic books and WWE.
The Mind The Gap mixtape will be released by Red Bull Studios next Thursday (May 26).
