Trailblazer of UK Drill, K-Trap has dropped his new single, ‘Spoilt’, and announced his forthcoming mixtape, ‘The Last Whip II’. Released via his label Thousand8 Records with Natz LDN and Remedy on co-production duties, the string-led and outward-looking single confirms why Trap is the scene’s most consistent and authentic voice. Over half a decade since his debut project, ‘The Last Whip’, the 26-year-old pioneer is living a different life but post removing his bally and stepping into the limelight, the long-term street side effects are forever present. His forthcoming music is the reincarnation of day one K-Trap with the visuals for ‘Spoilt’ going back to his roots and representing a street video at its highest quality.

K-Trap rose to rap prominence due to his unorthodox flow, finesse and mystery which all remain at the heart of his artistry and sound. Emerging onto the scene in 2017 with ‘David Blaine’, Trap’s consistent stream of releases resulted in co-signs from the likes of Stormzy, Giggs, and Fredo (to name a few) and earned him a permanent spot in the UK music scene’s hall of fame. Since establishing his own label and independence, Trap has been unstoppable from his critically acclaimed, ‘Trapo’ project late last year, to his Top 20 mixtape this year, ‘Joints 2’ featuring long-term friend and collaborator, Blade Brown. Most recently, Trap has collaborated with streetwear brand, Hoodrich on a limited range of clothes, further cementing his position as an influential, cultural icon.

Away from the rest of the herd, Trap is a timeless rapper who does things on his own terms and the forthcoming mixtape is his proudest and most versatile to date. Said so by Trap himself “If you’re a true K-Trap supporter this is gonna be your best K-Trap year” and he is a man of his word. Filled with A-List collaborations soon to be revealed, the 19-track tape bridges the gap between 2017 Trap and present-day Trap, a young man who is still going through the growing pains of wanting a better life for himself and his family.
