London’s Feed’Em is set to release his third studio project later this year.
‘Gospel of Grime, The Mixtape’ includes the new single Hats & Hoods.
“Hats & Hoods at the altar/ gun fingers in the air – Come as you are like you just don’t care/ my God will meet you there”
A Congolese-born grime emcee, Feed’Em has made a name for himself in the UK hip-hop scene.
His previous release, “Murder the Flesh, Pt. 3“, was met with critical acclaim. The record featured Zelijah Tishbite and Tneek. Following that success is his latest record Hats & Hoods. For those familiar with Grime culture, the term “no hats, no hoods” is one that you most likely have come across. It is viewed as a prejudiced term used to deny certain groups of people access to some venues.
On the record, Feed’Em draws parallels between the Grime culture and Chruch culture.
People can have a stereotypical view of those that wear hats and hoods. The way an individual looks can be perceived as “less mature” or even frowned upon. We must remember that we are told to “come as you are”. Exploring this concept further, Hats & Hoods presents an altar call that welcomes all and is less focused on church clothes.
Produced by Chakee T, the song is laced with clever wordplay, grimmy and drilly flows, and thought-provoking lyricism. The visual was filmed and edited by Junior Alawa.
