After countless radio plays, getting playlisted on BBC 1Xtra and over 30,000 streams on Soundcloud in a week, we’ve finally got it! The brand new video for Bonkaz’ latest single “We Run The Block”, which looks to do well with the massive anticipation around the release and the turnout for the #WeRunTheBlock party, is finally here. The highly sought after single is just the start of what is projected for the South London newcomer, this particular project has already been picked up by Sony Music to be released on their new imprint Pitched Up.
The beat comes from production powerhouses The Heavytrackerz, whose recent work includes Stormzy’s “Not That Deep”, Wiley’s last album, and the wonky beat for Dizzee Rascal and Giggs’ “Nutcrackerz”. About this project, Bonkaz has been quoted as saying, “as creatives, We Run The Block. We have the freedom to create whatever we like. ‘Free up the mandem’ means grant freedom to anyone who feels restricted in their creativity. With that being said, I’ll leave you to decide who the cops are”. Basically, Bonkaz has a new school anthem on his hands with “We Run The Block”. Get into the video below.
