Coin­cid­ing with the arrival of Brit­ish film ‘TRAP­PING’ on brand new pay-per-view stream­ing plat­form THE DROP, MOBO Award-win­ning rap­per Abra Cadabra releases the offi­cial ‘TRAP­PING’ Soundtrack ft. Pop­caan.

Pro­duced by FaN­aTix (Nicki Minaj), MageTh­eP­ro­du­cer (Libi­anca) and Juggy Beatz, it sees Abra Cadabra weave his lived per­son­al exper­i­ence into the film’s soundtrack to deliv­er a power­ful and authen­t­ic per­form­ance. Abra says: ‘The EP is inspired by my exper­i­ence of work­ing on the film as well as my per­son­al exper­i­ence of grow­ing up in Tot­ten­ham. What I’m play­ing as Magic, in the film, I’ve really seen. I’m mer­ging my real­ity with Magic’s real­ity.’

Dir­ec­ted by the film’s pro­du­cers and Brit­ish dir­ect­ors, act­ors and Grime pion­eers, Femi Oyenir­an and Nicky ‘Slimt­ing’ Walk­er, the music video for ‘Street View’ was filmed on Broad­wa­ter Farm Estate in Tot­ten­ham and fea­tures clips from the upcom­ing movie.

‘TRAP­PING’, dir­ec­ted and writ­ten by Penny Wool­cock, is a bru­tally hon­est fic­tion­al por­tray­al of the dis­tress­ing real­ity of county lines in the UK. Filmed between eco­nom­ic­ally deprived areas of Lon­don and Kent it stars Abra Cadabra in his first act­ing role along­side upcom­ing act­ors Louis Ede (who plays lead­ing char­ac­ter Daz), Aaliyah Gohir (who plays Maryam), C‑Biz (who plays Big­ger Man), Femi Oyenir­an (who plays Wole), Nicky Walk­er, (who plays Slim Man), and Drill group OFB.

THE DROP is the brainchild of Fan Stu­di­os founders, Brit­ish dir­ect­ors, act­ors and Grime pion­eers, Femi Oyenir­an (Kid­ult­hood) and Nicky “Slimt­ing” Walk­er. Sup­por­ted by the Brit­ish Film Insti­tute, ground-break­ing plat­form THE DROP is ded­ic­ated to serving minor­ity and under­rep­res­en­ted audi­ences glob­ally and pro­mot­ing inde­pend­ent and upcom­ing tal­ent in the Brit­ish TV and Film Indus­tries.
