Tipped by Complex as an emcee to watch in 2018, it was no surprise when South London rapper Yung Fume signed with iconic American imprint Payday Records (to admittedly minimal fanfare) earlier this year. Fresh from features alongside teen newcomer BRYN and UK rap don Nines, Yung Fume returns on a solo tip with new drop "Big Business" (out tomorrow; Aug. 10). Punching out melodic rhymes over a Nyge production, it's Fume firmly in his zone, floating between sung hooks and droning verses.
"Big Business" will appear on Fume's next EP, Too Much Wave 2 (due Aug 17). Look out for that and the iOS arcade-style mobile game called Yung Fume Level Up (soundtracked by two songs: "Zone" and "Life I'm Living"), which is out now.
