Namesbliss—a rising rapper from Enfield, North London—has just dropped Light Of Mine, his second EP following 2018’s Style & Grace.
Hype surrounding this faith-inspired, 7-track offering had already been building thanks to well-received singles like the jazzy, drill-infused heater “Rubicon Lychee” and the R&B-UKG fusion of “Guide Me”, featuring Darah and Eyez.
Standouts on the EP include the ZCBeats-produced “Paperchase”, a skippy number bursting with drilly colloquialisms and production nods, while the penultimate track, “Strikers”, steps further into the drill sandbox but with a hat-tip to grime, as Namesbliss spits his story with poetic vim.
Produced mostly by ZCBeats and Vagrant Real Estate, Light Of Mine achieves what many would hope to accomplish in a whole album: delivering novel-worthy storytelling draped in straight-talking rhymes atop screwface-worthy beats.
