Intent on exploring his musical sensibilities, whilst harking back to a sound reminiscent of the '90s, Piers James stands tall among the new breed of rappers currently on the rise here in the UK. B.A.T.A Vol.2 (Born.Artistic.To.Achieve) is the follow-up to the 8-track first edition that dropped late last year, and is impressively produced entirely by James. Growing up as a self-confessed "grime kid", Piers James has combined this early inspiration with his present day influence, boom-bap rapbut tops it off with a distinctly British edge. With only two guesting female vocalists, the scape is clear for James to put across his identity over this six-track EP. (Look out for the rebelliously self-assured "Famous", featuring Kyra, which is possibly the EP's standout track). Stream B.A.T.A Vol. 2 exclusively, here:
