I’ve got a bumper FTOD post for your listening pleasure today, so let’s get into it without any further ado!
Kojo Funds – Stallin’
The new Kojo Funds tune Stallin’ is everything and currently serves as my vibe of the summer! I literally can’t get the song out of my head. Kojo Funds just evokes a certain wave from his records & this follows the same pattern! It’s a fire tune by every account & this will be on rotation for a long while. Listen to the fire tune below
Rae Sremmurd (Swae Lee) – Touchscreen Navigation
Rae Sremmurd finally released the 3rd installment of their Sremmlife LP series this past Friday and the world is a better place as a result. The unique 3rd album sees both artists collaborate on the first 9 tunes off the album then embark on their solo projects (Swaecation & Jxmtro) over the next 9 songs respectively. As expected, Swae Lee stole the show on the album & Swaecation (one time for the title though!) feels like it should be a stand-alone tape off pure vibes. As alluded to by a mate earlier, Touchscreen Navigation just makes you want to ride a whip with the woman of your dreams & just vibe out to the tune.

GRM Daily – London’s Calling Ft. Skrapz, Avelino, Asco, Loski & AJ Tracey
GRM Daily did it yet again with their latest single London’s Calling featuring Skrapz, Avelino, Asco, Loski & AJ Tracey. The media house is shooting 100% from the field with every official single released so far. This record might just be the cream of the crop and in my humble opinion, AJ Tracey stole the show on this with his crisp 16 and fire footy reference as we’ve come to expect –
“Got my young strikers making names like Asensio”.

Skepta – Pure Water
Nigerian Eagle & Tottenham MC Skepta surprisingly released his latest single Pure Water yesterday and I’m here for it as expected. Skeppy’s always been one of my favourite UK MCs but the way he’s embraced his Nigerian roots over the past two years has raised my love for him up a notch! I’m convinced this record and it’s hook ‘Pure water and lots of ice’ was inspired by his frequent trips to Nigeria as pure water is a common term in Nigeria and used to refer to cold water bagged up in small plastic bags usually sold on the motorway. Either way, it’s a bop and a half and I’m here for it. Listen to the fire tune below
Slowthai – Ladies
This song right here alludes to one of my primary reasons for starting the blog. I had no idea who Slowthai was 12 hours ago but my mate told me to check out this one song and I duly obliged so here we are. It is a banger and a half and just a brilliantly made rap record. I’ll definitely be checking for any & every forthcoming release from Slowthai off the back of Ladies, it’s honestly that lit! Check out the visuals and fire tune below
