The ‘Next Up’ blogs featured on RepresentGrime will be an ongoing series of articles where I will give my own insight into who I believe is a hot prospect in the UK music scene.
To kick off the series I have chosen the very raw and authentic mc, Isaiah Dreads. If his dreadlocks aren’t memorable enough, I’m pretty sure his art will stick clean in your memory. After becoming familiar with Dreads through the Facebook cult ‘The Basement’ I was immediately engaged with his skippy flow and raw content.
At only 17 years old he is already making big movements with a set at Reading Festival just this weekend, which has come through with an extremely positive response. Earlier this year he dropped his mixtape, titled; ‘Nothin But A Mixtape’. The project contained some cold tracks, but personally ‘Wait For Me’ was the tune that got me engaged and hot onto Dreads’ movement. You can listen to wait for me and the mixtape in full below:
Mark my words, Isaiah is onto big things this year and I am looking forward to seeing how he progresses.
