A2The temperature’s dropping as Thornton Heath artist A2 appears to be gearing up for the release of long anticipated album Blue’. It’s a project that has been in the works for over two years now, with many fans itching for its release. His June 23rd tweet of “the time is approaching. My personal gift to you…” accompanied by the album’s artwork appeared to preparing us for an imminent drop. A month later, we’re still Blue-less, but our appetites have been whet by two new tracks. Dropped almost simultaneously without warning, this Sunday we received “Versace Blue Jeans 2” and “Tell Me Freestyle” via SoundCloud.

Produced by A2 himself, “Versace Blue Jeans 2” is a continuation of 2015’s original track, which was part of GRM Daily’s #NEXTGEN10 pic of their favourite upcoming artists. A2’s take on Trap features glitchy soundscapes commenting on love and a life of substance abuse. As is now his trademark, A2’s lyrics are deeper than most, with his raps containing poetic wordplay and memorable punchlines. The track is a release from ‘Blue’, and gives us a taste of what to expect.

On “Tell Me Freestyle”, A2 takes on a production created in collaboration from FWDSLXSH, KZ and Bizness Boi. In a more lethargic manner, A2 raps about his come up, and the journey he has taken so far through music. A2’s world is a cold one of ‘less friends, more enemies’, with the honestly of his bars cutting through the extravagant fluff of much of UK rap’s offerings at the moment.

A2 received a cool co-sign from Stormzy earlier this year when he was chosen as support act on the ‘Gang Signs & Prayer Tour’, which hit 17 venues all over the UK. He also pulled in a strong and excited crowd at Victoria Park’s LoveBox this year, at which he performed on the NEW GEN stage. After a string of successful EPs, and a SoundCloud following of over 13k, ‘Blue’ is set to be one of the most exciting releases of this year.
