Gaining a rep for delivering a biting flow over hip hop beats, Coventry rapper Mugun uses Lauryn Hill’s classic The Sweetest Thing instrumental to showcase his versatility with his latest offering. The late night visuals by Lukas. Co depict him embracing the night, with weed in hand, him and a few friends catch a vibe while the smooth acoustic-style beat sets the mood. ‘The Sweetest Ting’ is the title track from his up-coming ‘The Sweetest Ting EP’ which is chalked in for release in late Summer. The song acts as an ode to teenage love and angst on the block. Mugun explains:
“The Sweetest Ting is kind of like a diary if you get me… An expression of all the excessive paranoid thoughts you get whilst trying to push your teenage love affair to the next level but also at same time trying to survive through all the incidents and mistakes it takes to be a man in our day and age”
2016 was a breakthrough year for the young emcee, and after winning ‘Best Urban Act’ at the Unsigned Music Awards, receiving a Rated Awards ‘Get Rated’ nomination and having a track on SonyAtv/Reprezent’s sync project ‘Grime N Reason’, Mugun has been cited as one to watch this year by industry figures.
Spending much of 2017 in the studio refining new material, Mugun is now ready to drop a set of singles which will make up a full EP in late spring/early summer. In the pipes are more visuals, freestyles and singles including the track ‘Run Dem’, produced by Nyge (New Gen). Keep an eye out for more big announcements and moves…
