Datkid (Split Prophets/High Focus) + Gasp & More
Hailing from the streets of Bristol – Datkid part of the Split Prophets collective and just newly added to the High Focus record label.
Datkid blew up into the hip hop game in 2012, dropping heavyweight rhyme schemes in verses alongside the rest of the crew, plenty of ridiculously good cypher videos and, more recently, the title track of this album, Home by 8.
From Split Prophets crew and affiliates including Bil Next, Sirplus, Paro, T-Vision, Res, MAB, D. Green, Lowdose and Jay Wilcox keep a posse cut feel throughout the album which is dope and adds a lot of energy at times. However, Datkid proves he can hold it down himself on tracks such as Supreme, Bang and most of all Family Fortunez.
