Journeying on from his debut EP ‘CHEW YOUR FOOD’ that he dropped last year, South-East London rapper Deema has made his return with his brand new single named “Can I?”.

Housing a piano-led production from long-term collaborator Dom Valentino, “Can I?” encapsulates a nostalgic feel that’s reminiscent of 90’s Hip-Hop but with his contemporary stamp. Glossing the beat with a bouncing flow and refined pen game, Deema proves why he is one to watch this year! 

Speaking on the release, Deema commented, “‘Can I?’ came around from me spitting while Dom was playing bass. “Spitting in the chorus, I ain’t even wrote it” probably sums up this song best. Some of it was freestyled, Dom was tracking the bass at the same time. We recorded it just as we came out of the first lockdown and this was the first thing we made in months”.
