Produced solely by the future Hip-Hop star, along with the inclusion of a number of exceptional rearrangements of some of your favourite Rap songs (including Drake’s ‘Fear’ and Busta Rhymes’ ‘Show Me What You Got’), the Breakfast mixtape will certainly prove to be essential listening for UK Hip-Hop audiophiles throughout 2012 and for years to come.
By design, Breakfast kicks off with ‘Alive’ – a soulful yet head-bopping refix of a Little Brother classic. With a dark and honest lyrical undertone, it sets the mood for the mixtape and invites you to delve further into Breakfast. The record also includes a previously released refix of J.Cole’s ‘Losing My Balance’ which continues to be a favourite amongst many fans and critics, as well as new self-produced songs such as ‘Dreams’ and ‘Won’t Let You Down’ (featuring rising star and lead actress in the Sister Act musical, Cynthia Erivo).
