Yizzy’s recent output hasn’t always hit the lofty heights he clearly sets himself – but when it hits, it hits. His last two EP’s have tapped some of the weightiest names in grime, whether that be on production or on the features. He’s an example of grime done well in the streaming era, putting a pointed emphasis on making sure the music, visuals and marketing work in tandem to create something his fan base can buy into. It seems to have worked, as festival performances and nationwide features have come his way. Things haven’t been all rosy on the way up for the Lewisham MC, though. Some write him off as being unoriginal, but which ever side of the fence you’re on it’s easy to see there’s plenty of talent.

His latest track is titled ‘Hustle Hard’, with the lyrics riffing on exactly what the title suggests. In the intro, he bemoans the idea of materialistic ambition, preferring to build his wealth for the future instead. In the verses, he flips between a slower flow and his trademark speedy wordplay with ease, over a beat that manages to combine aspects of grime, drill and UK rap into an interesting hybrid. Overall, it’s a solid track. Yizzy’s strength is his ability to put across an energy in his tracks, and here he does that with ease.
