Following on from the success of standout singles ’50 Grand’ featuring Skepta, ‘Cold Blooded‘, ‘Bitches‘ and ‘Castella Freestyle’, UK MC Devlin today drops the latest installment from his anticipated new studio album ‘The Devil In’, released 10th February 2017.
Flexing his unrivalled raw energy, new single ‘Blow Your Mind’ is inspired by Oklahoma bomber Tim McVeigh. Devlin employs the alter ego to delve into some of the darkest imagery emblazoned on his latest offering and with his unapologetic lyrical delivery; it’s a stark contrast to the bluesy soul-laden vocal hook from collaborator, Maverick Sabre.
The Devil In, reaffirms Devlin’s status as Dagenham’s own street poet that has seen him attain gold-selling albums and multiple Top 10 hits. As well as the arguably greater honor of being grime godfather Wiley’s favorite MC, which saw Devlin feature on his recent single, ‘Holy Grime‘.
Returning in 2017 to re-stake his position in the scene; his 12-track new offering features a host of collabs including man of the moment Skepta, Harry James and Tom Prior, along with production credits from dynamic duo and long-time friends, Term x Rachet.
Equally as comfortable garnering mainstream success and riding the charts with acts such as Katy B and Ed Sheeran as he is spitting with such heavyweights as Wiley, Devlin is not your average rapper. From his hungry teenage mixtape days, Devlin’s dexterous and virtuoso talent driven by the desire to portray life for the underdog and the ordinary, has forced him to stand apart from his peers.
The Devil In, is an empathetic statement of intent for what is set to be a standout year for this undeniable talent.
