RK & Izzie Gibbs pattern a rap anthem with 'U Know'
RK and Izzie Gibbs swerve out together on 'U Know' - a powerful performance of big raps and melodies.
Both RK and Izzie Gibbs present high energy on this record. Their raps are fast and well executed, and Gibbs develops even higher with his singing and melodies. They are supported by a phenomenal instrumental containing rapid percussion and a fucking amazing piano melody. RK is still fairly young in his ‘commercial’ musical career, yet the man has a purely raw talent and tone. He brings the grit, the street, the heart and the passion to his bars. All that combine for an excellent listen and grab in the ear of the listener.
Gibbs is a don. His catalogue is already certified. Since his hiatus from music, it’s good to see him back in it with the same energy and hunger. Something to note on the Northampton MC is that he holds a great ear for music and developing actual songs - not to mention his a skilled MC, set man, and clasher. Coming from a grime MC background and clashing, some artist can find it hard to pattern songs, yet this seems to come naturally to Gibbs - alongside his ability to destroy a hook.
Overall this is a very good song from the pair and definitely an anthem to ride out to.
