THROWBACK: Nafe Smallz shows future innovation on 2014's 'Only Way'
Nafe Smallz is proving to be a stand out artist after countless big solo records; multiple tours across the UK; and features with the likes of M Huncho, Skepta, Gunna, Chip and Black The Ripper. One such mixtape that started him off was Ozone Music; and one such track from that was ‘Only Way’.
The innovative style from the Luton rapper can be found from track seven, on the Ozone Music project; released by Link Up TV in 2014. This is in fact the first mixtape Smallz ever recorded and already we can hear his unique talent and style. The record houses Smallz sung/rap delivery over light VST’s and minimal drums - all allowing the track to deliver maximum focus on his vocals. Skepta actually stated in his interview with DJ Target, that Smallz is one such artist from the UK that seems to have a certain skill in music that transcends borders, and could even break the gap between here and America. The UK has always seeked to push it’s sound into the US market, thus Nafe Smallz may be one rapper that fully accomplishes this.
Also exciting now, is his single with the Boy Better Know member, ‘Greaze Mode’, and the music video that will be released tomorrow.
