NEW MUSIC | SHAY D & P MONEY LINK UP ON NEW SINGLE ‘SLICE OF THE PIE’

North Lon­don rap­per Shay D has joined forces with grime legend P Money on new single ‘A Slice Of The Pie’, out today.

Under­pinned by a men­acing pro­duc­tion from Filthy Gears, ‘A Slice Of The Pie’ sees Shay D flex her rap­id-fire flow and clev­er word­play, with P Money also drop­ping a flaw­less verse and demon­strat­ing why he’s one of the most revered names on the scene.

“When I heard the beat from Filthy Gears I knew this was gonna be a banger,” Shay D explains. “I had to find the right time to write to it because there was so much I needed to say on it, but it needed to be right! The song is about hav­ing no handouts, no leg up, no cheat code, ‘no slice of the pie had to cook up a stew’ and grind­ing your­self to work your way up to share your rewards, provide and cel­eb­rate the wins with your peoples,

She con­tin­ues: “‘If I eat, my fam, they are eat­ing too’ and being true to your­self for the whole jour­ney. I asked P Money if he wanted to spit on it, he asked me to send the song, and he came back say­ing yes let’s do it, so I knew it was a banger! He came to the stu­dio and smashed it so quick!! It is one of my favour­ite tracks to date. Its cold, its hard­body, its strong and its fun!”

Hail­ing from the stomp­ing grounds of North Lon­don, Shay D is a Per­sian lyr­i­cist who draws inspir­a­tion from her upbring­ing in the cap­it­al. Her inde­pend­ently released album Human Writes entered the iTunes ‘Top 20 Hip Hop’ chart, secured vari­ous radio and Spo­ti­fy playl­ist­ing and was fea­tured in the Music Week ‘taste­m­akers album of the month’ short­l­ist. Not afraid to break bound­ar­ies, she not only empowers women through her songs but also through her youth work and the fact she led the first ever all-female UK hip-hop tour.

South Lon­don grime MC, rap­per and song­writer P Money is one of the most recog­nis­able names in Brit­ish music, respons­ible for a slew of era-defin­ing mix­tapes and col­lab­or­a­tions with every­one from Giggs, Leth­al Bizzle and JME to Trip­pie Redd, AJ Tracey and Back­Road Gee.

A col­lab­or­a­tion between two of UK music’s finest rap­pers deliv­ers typ­ic­ally dazzling results.
