Budding UK artist MJay brings us his latest trap-influenced street anthem ‘In the Trenches’. We’re given very little intro, as he begins rhyming nine-seconds in as the beat slowly builds behind him. As he rhymes about the struggles of his youth and the choices he had to make, his voice remains steady and sure. When the beat finally drops, his voice remains steady, a testament to his attitude and strength as someone who has remained steady in his street career.
The intoxicating beat and raw lyrics make him one to watch amongst the burgeoning talents emerging from the UK. Mjay will fit right in alongside the latest class of trap-influenced artists while still holding on to originality and realness that makes him stand out.
