You should know Ragz Originale as a producer—he's the man behind Skepta's huge "Shutdown" after all—but this year he's proving he can rap too. Ragz popped up with vocals on Oscar #worldpeace's "Alright," which he also produced, but on "En Route" he's doing it all himself. From the soaring choir to the funky bassline, there's a lot of ambition packed into two-and-a-half minutes, and the track serves as proof that when you can produce and rap, everything can be perfectly in sync.
"En Route" is clearly a personal track, and Ragz Originale explains, "Over the last two years I've had more ups than downs. A lot of things changed around me. 'En Route' is a true story about me battling with my conscience. I reflect on how things could have been without music in my life and anyone who knows me knows I'm an overthinker.”
