It’s been a little over a year since V9 dropped off the well-received project Yūdokuna, an 11-track body of work that saw appearances from his 98s collective, including Unknown T, KO, Billy Billions, Jimmy, and AlChubbino. Months later, he would join his brethren on the group outing Class of 98s — he also kept his fans fed with loose cuts and collaborations alongside the likes of Karma, Trizzac, and Teeway.
This past weekend, V9 returned with his latest mixtape Murk With A Mouth, which was previously led by the singles “Hole In One” and “Change.” In addition to the aforementioned, Mazza, Ghetts, and ZNZE deliver top tier contributions to the 15-song effort. Just prior to Murk With A Mouth’s arrival, V9 also liberated a visual for the standout track “Sweeper,” a Dizzy and Mobz Beatz-produced effort that’s full of the street-oriented subject matter that the Homerton emcee is well-known for:
“Four man up in the seven-seater, two waps, two beaters, leave him cold when I slap this heater, fill it to the top like a meter, fill up the car by the liter, violate any opp block, I’m a cheater, I’m a creeper, this ain’t no handy, it’s a rassclart sweeper…”
Directed by Leon Matthews, the accompanying clip for “Sweeper” sees the Deadpool mask-donning talent living the lavish life in a mansion with a well-armed crew and some beautiful, costumed women to celebrate a late Halloween vibe with.
“Bruv you see Drill is just hip-hop. You get it? I don’t know who called it Drill music. This is hip-hop. … Because you see when I was younger, I wasn’t doing music. … I seen my boys do music, it was Drill. So I thought I might as well.”
