There’s nothing non-grime, dubstep or grimestep related in the UK that’s getting our blood pumping quite like North-West London’s 1Up Empire (Queen Ice Cream, Skrillz and Mafiella, pictured). We’re still pumping our fists and watching our backs in equal measure after the intense Sky Is The Limit video and Skrillz’s ice cold Doing Music Now Pt. 1. And now the team hits us with their monstrous BMF freestyle, which is typically menacing slow-flow business.
Also check out the Roger Dat freestyle below by the Diva Twinz, which has quotables for days and has been in our heads for the past few weeks. Plus peep the live Bang Radio broadcast of the crew going off.
