The young British-Gambian rapper offers a taste of his forthcoming project with his new track, “Block Boy,” taken from his future album Send Them to Coventry.
After a series of successful singles, Pa Salieu is finally embarking on a debut album, made in the UK, which will include the track “Betty,” released last May. In his new track “Block Boy,” the rapper propels us into a wild night where a ragga dancehall scene raises the temperature.
The lightning energy of this young rapper from Coventry seems to affect all who listen. With his original fusion of afroswing, dancehall and UK drill, Pa Salieu is ready to wreak havoc and to make himself heard, all the while cultivating a very strong bond with his Gambian roots. This new sensation of UK rap is on a meteoric rise since “Frontline” dropped, a real anthem for the poorer districts of Great Britain, which are going through an undeniable social crisis, something Stormzy and Burna Boy also addressed a few months ago in the spiritual “Real Life.”
The album Send Them to Coventry will be released on 13 November via Atlantic/Warner UK.
