Brix­ton legend Sneakbo has offi­cially released his 2nd album 9 Lives, 2 years on from his debut album Brix­ton.

The whole album through­out shows his matur­ity as an artist where he blends rap, afrobeats and dance­hall melod­ies to cre­ate his unique sound coupled with his trade-mark flow.

Open­ing on Highs & Lows with a skit from his son Lorenzo, it talks through his jour­ney in life, as he describes how hav­ing a son has changed his life. It’s a blend of sum­mer vibe tracks such as The Fly­est ft. Br3nya and Oh La La ft. Dappy, tracks for the ladies includ­ing Hold You Down ft. Mr Eazi and Love Is A Gamble ft. Kida Kudz along with harder UK rap tracks such as I Used To ft. Stickz and Skrrrr ft. Fekky.

The album rep­res­ents the Brix­ton rap­pers’ events which have taken place in his life and have made him who he is today as described by Sneakbo him­self:

 “I called the album ‘9 Lives’ because I’ve been through cer­tain situ­ations more than once that could have taken my life yet here I am”

 The art­work is an embod­i­ment of where Sneakbo’s pos­i­tion in the music industry cur­rently. The black rep­res­ents Sneakbo, por­tray­ing his image and trans­form­a­tion. Sur­roun­ded by sev­er­al oth­er cats, the image sym­bol­ises his status as the lead­er of the sound he cre­ated which has taken over the UK.

9 Lives is set to be UK Rap’s album of the year and will be heard across the air­waves, clubs and parties. It’s a slice of some­thing for every­one from the beats, the bars, the flow and the power­ful mes­sage.
