Today sees the release of UK rap ascendant Lord Apex's new nine-track project Smoke Sessions Vol. 2 (a follow up to the 2016 edition), and to celebrate he's also unlocking visuals for one of the many highlights, "EM3".

Fans of his old school-inflected, thoroughly London style will be pleased to hear those elements stand out as proudly as ever, and those low-slung, crunchy rap beats have only gotten better. "EM3", like the rest of Smoke Sessions Vol. 2, also features some laid back jazzy elements too (thanks to producer Toonorth), complementing the general haziness of the project.

The Henry Croston-directed video for the track, meanwhile, brings all those elements to the fore, capturing Apex as he navigates the cold city streets while what he calls the "soundtrack for smokers worldwide" plays out. Watch up above.
