Hailing from Bow in East London, Grime MC Villain has built up a reputation as a feared MC. With his fast-paced flow and confrontational content, it is evident that Villain lives up to his name. Villain gained recognition as a member of grime crew Mucky Wolfpack and his appearances on the Lord of the Mics DVDS. This year he has released the video for his song Roll with Rhythm, and he has now followed up with Late.
Late is produced by grime producer Lewi B, and Villain flows effortlessly on the production. Late also sees Villain showcasing his lyrical ability and personality. Villain comes with fighting talk on Late, with witty lyrics such as “Act up, fully fold him Origami” and also delivers clever wordplay with standout bars like “straight from the gutter like Pennywise”.
The music video for Late was shot in Gambia, the West African inner-city setting adds to the gritty atmosphere of the song. 2018 has seen Villain in consistent form and securing his place as one of the most exciting prospects in grime.
