Still hitting numbers on his breakout tracks, 2017's "Gentleman" and "Tropical", new music from teenage London rapper SL has understandably been at a premium so far this year. Save for a couple of surprise freestyles and a standout feature on Nines' Crop Circle album, SL ends a brief period of apparent inactivity with new drop "Nothing To Say".
With the promise of more to follow, on "Nothing To Say", SL displays the languid, conversational style that helped to separate him from the pack, earmarking a natural talent. There's also a growing level of on-camera charisma and comfort from SL in the visual, directed by award-winner Simon Aukes ("Shiro's Story 3"), but his face remains well-hidden, happily offset by the fact that his voice continues to get bigger and bigger.
