Say hello to South East London native turned Nottingham resident, Raphael Blake. One of the latest crop of spoken word artists who are setting their poetical muses to a musical backdrop and exploring engaging a contemporary audience. With a new mixtape “The Undergrad” en route, and having garnered early support from the likes of Clash Magazine, who premièred this latest piece, he looks poised to join the ranks of recent success stories.
Check out one of the cuts “Its More Than Poetry” below, and watch this space for the full mixtape, which will contain eighteen tracks and will be released in three parts: 1st (Ambition), 2nd (Reality) and final years (Sacrifice).[soundcloud url=”https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/161228886″ params=”color=ff5500&auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false” width=”100%” height=”166″ iframe=”true” /]
