London based artist Prynce MINI is ‘still’ on the edge of serious Grime scene recognition with his latest musical offering. “Still”, which is self produced, is a dark and gritty Grime and Trap influenced record littered with untamed vocals giving us a window into the Peckham MC’s day to day life in “the ends”.
“Don’t get caught in the cycle, as a young G I was told/Keep your circle tight, grind right, invest that paper you fold/Have a dream but don’t buy one, or you’ll hate what you’ve been sold/Keep your hustle on the low, can never know who’s friend or foe” he raps effortlessly over a marauding synth and distorted drum pattern as the track begins, setting the tone for what follows.
The production of Prynce MINI’s body of work takes you back to the early days of Grime music while still managing to maintain the current Trap feel of today à la ‘Section Boys’ and ’67’. His authentic lyrics are not overly complex but they encompass everything that has made Grime experience its renaissance making the record a worthwhile listen for any true fan of the genre. By the time the chorus drops you can not help but nod your head to the beat and the release would not be amiss at a packed Grime club night in Fabric given it’s memorable hook.
Prynce Mini, who’s perhaps most well known for his featured appearance on Izzie Gibb’s huge 2016 track “My LIfe’ with Big Narstie, has been releasing a steady stream of recordings for the past four years on his label ‘Abzurd Records’.
