Following his rise of the last few years, North London rapper Headie One has spent the best part of 2019 proving himself amongst the most prolific and consistent in British rap. Announcing a new tour to close out the year, he links up with the ever-present top dog of Tottenham, Skepta, for long-awaited collab track "Back To Basics".
Directed by Black Dog's Hugo Jenkins, it's a suitably gritty visual with Headie and Skepta cutting eerie figures around their North London territories. Produced by NYGE, "Back To Basics" serves as a reminder that whatever your opinions are on drill and grime music as sub-genres of rap, or their own sounds entirely, they can oftentimes co-exist a lot closer than we allow them to.
The Music x Road tour kicks off in October and is the "Golden Boot" rapper's largest to date, pulling into 10 cities across the UK, before crowning off the run with a sold-out date in London on Nov. 10. Get your tickets here.
