Benga and Kano teamed up on an explosive new single, ‘Forefather’.
After dropping the lyric video at the start of the weekend, Croydon’s Dupstep king, Benga ,has unveiled the video for his new single, ‘Forefather’.
Featuring Grime MC Kano, the explosive new single premiered Thursday night (March 7) on BBC Radio 1 as the Hottest Record In The World by Huw Stevens (standing in for Zane Lowe).
With a booming bass production from Benga and a fast flow from Kano, the collaboration couldn’t have been better matched.
Raw and gritty as are the two genres, the video starts off with Benga on his decks and Kano on the mic. We are then taken to 2008, to match the lyrics “sounding like some old school KA”, where the MC is spitting in front of a club crowd. Minutes later we are brought back to 2013 where he is in front of a new crowd, creating the same buzz, proving he’s still got it.
‘Forefather’, which can be downloaded via iTunes, is taken from Benga’s new album Chapter II, is set to drop in May.
