slowthai fans rejoiced back in November when he announced that his official follow-up to his debut studio album Nothing Great About Britain has a solid release date set for early 2021. The UK star just unleashed another taste of the project, the new A$AP Rocky-assisted “MAZZA,” which is named after “mazzaleen” (Grime slang for mad or crazy) and slowthai’s verse is his interpretation of that:
Suicidal tendencies, what’s up, man? Feel like I’m down, I say “What’s up?” Way too, way too, way too gully, give me money. Cannot trust me, no one ever fuckin’ buss me change. Look how shit changed. Feeling like these drugs made me better than I was. But I never felt love before the drugs. So, now I say “What’s up? What’s up? What’s up?” Say“What’s up?” Feel to revert to my old ways. Cricket tickets, wraps of cocaine. Sticky fingers, shoplifters. We got tools like homebase. Lift a finger, dug his own grave, same, same with the same name.
Earlier this year, slowthai liberated loose singles like “Enemy,” “Magic” with Kenny Beats, and “BB (Bodybag).” In addition, he contributed to other tracks like Disclosure’s “My High” and Gorillaz’s “Momentary Bliss.” Titled TYRON after his first name, the new project will be arriving Feb 5 this year. TYRON will see 14 new cuts and additional appearances from Skepta, A$AP Rocky, Denzel Curry, James Blake, and more. So far from the project we have “nhs,” which also came paired with a music video, “feel away” featuring James Blake and Mount Kimbie, and now “MAZZA.”
A$AP Rocky’s last full-length release was 2018’s TESTING, which boasted features from names like Kid Cudi, FKA Twigs, and included his fan-favorite cut “Praise The Lord (Da Shine)” featuring Skepta. He also handed out some assists last year on projects like both Lil Yachty’s Lil Boat 3 and Lil Boat 3.5, Juicy J’s THE HUSTLE CONTINUES, French Montana’s CB5, and more.
