As expected, slowthai has emerged this year with a real purpose.
Having honed his sound, the Northampton MC has combined this with timely drops of top-notch visuals. Following on from "T N Biscuits" and "North Nights" so far this year, slowthai drops another stellar video, this time for "Ladies". Carrying a rampant, grime-rooted energy—lyrically, the rapper fuses elements of horrorcore with quaint British charm. Visually, he layers this with images representing small-town angst at decades of neglect and urban decay. Slowly, as the method to his madness becomes more apparent, we can rightfully tag Thai as one of the country's unique new voices.
