Coming up in a profession – be it music, film, writing or any discipline that requires focus – is undoubtedly tough. You are required to play the long game, putting in the ten thousand hours and sharpening your craft until your goal is reached. P Money knows a lot about that, having cut his teeth on pirate radio and grafted hard to get to where he is today. He’s at the top of his game now. We’ve seen that progression play out across hundreds of tracks, videos and freestyles – but there are surely moments behind the scenes we haven’t seen either.

His latest track is titled ‘The Calling’ and it speaks on some of those moments behind closed doors. P details the effort it took in the early days with bars like “People telling me to contain myself / I didn’t listen to them – nah – I listened to me,” and as the track unfolds, he’s forthright about how important it is that grime has self-sustaining outposts that were built by the scene. Later on, he tells the listeners how they can follow a road similar to the one he did, all wrapped up in a tight flow that means you can throw gun fingers and get motivated. The beat – produced by Silencer – is a skippy one, the driving element coming from the percussion lines. 

Overall, ‘The Calling’ is another great track from P Money. We wrote about emcees pulling back the curtain in tracks a few days ago, and this is a great example. It gets the message across perfectly and is presented in a way that can light up a sound system, doesn’t stray into conscious rap tropes and fits into the context of grime as a whole.
