Louis Culture has shared his new single 'Burst'.
There's a tendency within UK rap focus on the gritty side of London life, to look at the poverty and danger that exists within many communities.
This isn't the whole picture, though - just take this new Louis Culture single, and it's playful, nostalgic examination of youth in the ends.
Out now, the woozy production makes space for a soulful vocal, with Louis Culture and Kam-Bu spraying on the track.
Louis comments: “Despite spending a lot of time away from the ends for my own sanity and safety to an extent, the years I spent there and the person it made me is something I’ll forever carry with me”.
For his part, Kam adds: “We were trying to channel nostalgia. When I heard Louis’ verse, it made me remember having a little bit of pocket money and going to the shop. Doing what I could. Having fun, playing run-outs, man hunt on the blocks. Looking up to olders. Living in the moment.”
