“Some people ONLY care about them­selves, we care about our community”

The East Lon­don, com­munity-driv­en rap­per Frenzy comes through with his highly anti­cip­ated EP ‘Murder Mile’, an authen­t­ic and cap­tiv­at­ing rep­res­ent­a­tion of the life of a Hack­ney resident. 

Frenzy, along with oth­ers around him, pride his abil­ity to cross­breed vari­ous BPM’s, com­bin­ing ele­ments of a mul­ti­tude of genres to gen­er­ate such a unique, altern­at­ive hip-hop sound. From the begin­ning of the year, Frenzy has been keep­ing all eyes on him with three drops of pure excel­lence, show­cas­ing his ver­sat­il­ity and note­worthy artist dir­ec­tion. After kick­ing of 2019 with the dark and con­cep­tu­al ‘Caesar’ call­ing upon Nines pro­du­cer Eyes, he then shook up the scene with argu­ably the most cre­at­ive col­lab­or­a­tion of the year in ‘Kisses’, fea­tur­ing Knucks and House Of Pharaohs front­man Knucks. Frenzy’s final state­ment before the release of the EP was ‘Bro Code’ – a track that sends us 90’s babies straight into a nos­tal­gic state, get­ting us ready for the club or a clas­sic BBQ, with Trench describ­ing it as ‘The ideal sum­mer banger’. 

Frenzy now shakes things up once more, mak­ing a ser­i­ous state­ment with his ‘Murder Mile’ lead single about the state of knife crime and murder rates in the cap­it­al. Hav­ing gone through struggles through­out his life, see­ing close friends and fam­ily being locked up or killed while grow­ing up on the infam­ous ‘Murder Mile’ strip, Frenzy not only out­lines these tra­gedies in his lyr­ics but also takes enfor­cing pos­it­iv­ity and hope back into his com­munity of Hack­ney very ser­i­ously. The murder rates are at the highest they’ve been in a dec­ade and the mes­sage of ‘Murder Mile’ has nev­er felt more rel­ev­ant. “With­in those five hun­dred steps there are sev­en bod­ies that have died” 

As some­what of a loc­al celebrity for his char­ity work and a ment­or for his music to young aspir­ing artists, Frenzy also runs a work­shop ‘Fast For­ward’ provid­ing free stu­dio time, pro­duc­tion and engin­eer­ing, which this time has res­ul­ted in a com­pil­a­tion titled ‘Fast For­ward Vol. 1’. 

With pre­vi­ous and loy­al sup­port from BBC 1Xtra DJs Jeremi­ah Asiamah, Robert Bruce and Kenny All­star, as well as fea­tures from Lon­don heavy­weights such as Sam Wise, Kadi­ata and Knucks, Frenzy has laid some unbreak­able found­a­tions for great­ness this year. A strong work eth­ic, excep­tion­al lyr­i­cism and a genu­ine con­sid­er­a­tion for the well­being of his com­munity has made him one of the most respec­ted artists from East.
