Last night, after much anticipation and online speculation, DigDat finally sated our appetites with the drop of his brand new project, Ei8ht Mile, liberating visuals for the title track (which features Aitch) in the process.
It's not hard to see where at least some of the influence for this project came from — and that goes tenfold for the new video. Directed by Wowa, we're instantly plunged back to Eminem's 2002 battle rap blockbuster of the same name, opening in a dark and grimy basement. After the MC introduces our contenders from Manchester and South London, the pair take to the stage, throwing barbed verses at each other in the hope that one of them will choke and end up with Mom's spaghetti all over himself. We're not going to spoil the ending though, so peep the visuals at the top to find out who wins.
As for the rest of the album, the high profile team-ups don't end with Aitch: Headie One, Bookey, D-Block Europe, K-Trap, Frosty, Snap Capone and even Tee Grizzley all make appearances on this pounding collection of rap and drill thumpers. Production-wise, DigDat has summoned some of the best the scene has to offer, including "Air Force" producer CZR Beats, M1OnTheBeat, Chris Rich Beats, MadaraBeatz, WhYJay, RenzoProd, Bkay, Maniac and SlayProducts.
