Luton artist Nafe Smallz appears to be the next on the conveyor belt of Brit talents granted a worldwide audience. From his mastery of melodic flows and chameleon-like ability to shift towards the needs of a record, the rapper has built up a steady rep and cashes it in on the release of his star-studded Good Love EP.
Tory Lanez pops up on the opener, the title track currently hitting the radio, and the big draw features don't end there. Fellow rap-crooner hybrid acts Lil Berete, Yxng Bane and M Huncho join Nafe—recently singled out by Skepta as "an original"—across the nine-track project, resulting in a native sound of woozy hooks and contorting sing-song flows (also, be sure to take in the collabs with fellow Luton spitter OG Mano).
A full circle moment comes via input from Chip on "Lil More"—possibly the pick of the bunch—and the pair's relationship can be traced back to 2016 when the MC hailed the then-newcomer on NFTR at the advent of his career.
