Making noise with blasts of introspection, Cambridge’s BiG HEATH comes correct for 2017. Finding the live stage most comfortable with a string of notable festival appearances last year, Heath consistently serves up the good stuff.
His mix of showmanship and pauses for thought have reached the pages of Monolith Cocktail and the airwaves of the BBC. Years of honing his craft, covering freestyles, stimulating visuals, and steady racking up views, plays and all important social media appreciation, culminated in the album ‘$mells of Beef’, a 10 track diary charting the life, times and rhymes of the Cambridge don that kept it in the family as much as it carved into UK hip-hop classics.
In tandem with the previous ‘Christopher’ EP, it’s a body of work showing that Big Heath ain’t budging for nobody, flipping bullish bars into the bittersweet, and playing to the crowd with hooks front rows can hang their hat on.
