‘Here comes the ice cream man’!
This banger from Hardy Caprio and One Ocen made an impact in 2017 and was all over the radio.
This song has brought this to artist into the limelight after its release. Hardy Caprio is known for other songs such as Super Soaker, CMON and Together.
The music video was released in June 2017 and has over 11 millions views. The music video is very different from other UK artist and the usual ‘hood’ video. The location (Barcelona) is fitting for a summer banger. The title of the song is very fitting as both artisit were underground before the impact the song made to their careers. The collaboration between Hardy and Ocen makes sense and they should really continue to produce future hits together.
We hope that is the case in 2018.

This 2 part mixtape from, the Croydon based rap duo, Krept & Konan gives listeners a choice of the vibe they want to be in.
7 Days side gives us raw bars and ‘metafives’ throughout. The 7 Day side is definitely for when you are about to go raving and need to hype yourself up or just motivational music for the gym. The 7 nights side is for when you want to netflix and chill with bae or just have some calm songs for a long drive. Both sides has something for every one and the double sided mixtape was a intelligent move by the rap duo as it provides them with a choice of music for whichever type of crowd they perform for.
This should be the type of mixtape the duo should release now and then.
The mixtape has notable bangers such as ‘For Me’, ‘Wo Wo Wo’, ‘Khalas’, and ‘Ask Flipz’.
We will definitely be looking forward to more music videos and hopefully a bonus track from them this year.
