Grim Sickers | Sickers The Great

It is pretty safe to say that Grim Sickers has had an astounding year in terms of music. From his days commanding the grime scene with his bubbly flows and wordplay, to refining and experimenting with his sound, Sickers has risen to the helm of the British music scene as an artist to keep an eye on.

After a string of releases over the last 11 months, the MC has enticed us with what we could expect from his third studio album. The body of work was set to be some of his finest work to date, and now the wait is finally up as the 2013 ‘Lord of The Mics V’ spitter gifts us with heavy 16-tracker SickersThe Great.

Sickers packs a punch from the get-go by opening the tape with a bold joint dubbed “My Genna”, featuring vocals from fellow grime don Mayhem NODB. The heavy tune sets the tone for the rest of the album as Grim Sickers has us grounded from the very first riddim- from this point on we were immersed into an inspired fusion of the MCs deep-rooted love for grime intertwined with a scintillating insight into Emo Rap. Grim Sickers continually blurs the lines between multiple genres, which goes a long way in showcasing his versatility as an artist.

The vibe of the work perhaps fluctuates throughout, with bold back beats to accommodate Grims energetic side and thensolemn melodies to compliment his mellow offerings. The way that the lyricist pens his bars is truly inspiring- with tracks like “Brand New” and “Used To” opening doors to a slightly more stripped-back version of the artist himself.

When it comes to collaborative efforts, Grim Sickers always goes the extra mile to unleash outstanding content. The project is a prime example of this, as he drafts in an unbreakable line up of creatives to pattern his already cold track list. The likes of Mayhem, Infamous Dimez, Reepa, Scorcher, Eyez, Raider, Rhys the Confessor, Fabien Darcy, Local, Yatez, Pingpong, Ruben James and Gallah can be found sprinkling their very own prowess over a tune or two- the extensive cast list only reinforces the hard work Grim Sickers has poured into this album.

Each individual song holds its own as a slick piece of content and when it’s all tied together, we are met with an unforgettable project from a pioneering music artist.
