North London rapper Elijah is making his introduction a big one! Taking the stage as a solo act, he comes through with his debut single “Slither” – giving us an impressive first glimpse of what’s to come from him this year.
It’s his first release since his huge yet underrated joint project Hours with fellow rapper and friend Decarno and he sets the bar high. We get to see first hand his knack for rhymes come alive with catchy hooks, tight flows and deep but playful tone. The production, courtesy of the emerging talent of MG, provides a dark and eerie drill-like canvas to the tracks sentiments.
The track is an ode to keeping it 100, with Elijah stating: “It’s is an ode to all the fake people around me at that time. There was a lot of snakey behaviour about, hence the title ‘Slither”
Between Decarno, MG and our main man Elijah, the trio built a studio and began recording, producing, mixing and mastering a variety of tracks themselves. 2018 saw Elijah and MG working closely together to create a library of huge tunes ready to drop this year. “Slither” is an exciting, crisp and authentic introduction to the young artist – We can’t wait to hear more!
