AR15’s Concrete Jungle is being kept under close guard and apart from one previous release, the project remains largely under wraps but amid the intrigue and suspense, from the teasers that have dropped so far and the feature list of over 50 acts that are involved, it is already high in the stakes of being the biggest release in UK Rap this year.
As only the second track to be heard from the 16 track mix-tape, ‘Out in The Jungle’ features an impressive, all-star cast with Squeeks, Sneakbo, Dubz, Stormzy & Mr Bigz going verse for verse across a haunting Nana Rogues beat. A true connection to the streets and fire bars from some of the most distinct voices in the scene puts this record straight in at the top and makes it a solid follow up to ‘Trapping Aint Dead’.
Featuring the Section Boyz, ‘Trapping Aint Dead’ has hit the 1Xtra playlist, MTV playlist, picked up support across the United States and Europe and has received over half a million hits online within it’s first two months of release, which is a respectable achievement for any introductory single.

In collaboration with GB Records, the two labels have joined together to create a mix-tape built on a foundation that understands the roots and reality of many emcees, commanding a respect that has enabled itsfounders to place unexpected emcees together to create a project of exciting, interesting and huge proportions.
