"Party & Bullsh*t: This Week in Nashville Hip-Hop [Dee Goodz, Ziggurat, NUGfunk, Jelly Roll]"

As my colleague Lance Conzett said, "More local videos shot on the top floor of the Arcade please." I love that spot in all of its Victorian-ish glory. I also love a good all-star cipher, and this track with Pradda, BRIT, Tino Bugg and Marco rapping over a Treekeeper beat hits that motherfuckin' sweet spot. "NUGfunk" for real. - Nashville Scene

"Party & Bullsh*t: This Week in Nashville Hip-Hop [Amerigo Gazaway, Young Buck, Brit, Sofa Brown, Ducko McFli, Truth Clipsy]"

God, I love the weeks when everybody releases videos. This new one from Belmont MC Brit was shot at Red Rocks out in Colorado — maybe, I could be wrong — and it's an appropriate setting for the otherworldly future-tech stylings of "To the Moon." Brit's flow is on fire, and the track is sweeping in scope — a definite winner here in Party & Bullshit Land. - Nashville Scene

"Party & Bullsh*t: This Week in Nashville Hip Hop [Boom Bap, Nicolay, Young Buck, BRIT, Jota Ese, Starlito]"

* BRIT, on the other hand, keeps it at a sprightly five songs/16 minutes on his new Purple Lightsabers EP. I can sit still for 16 minutes. Barely, but I can do it. Lightsabers has a decidedly futurist bend, heavy on the synths and cavernous robo-bass and Brit's flows have become a lot tighter over the last year or so. You can download Purple Lightsabers on his website. - Nashville Scene

"Hot new local hip-hop you may have missed this summer"

"Not be confused with the SoundLand festival-headlining Mississippian MC Big K.R.I.T., this British-by-way-of-North Carolina transplant and Belmont student has one of the most unique vocal timbres in the city right now. Which probably has to do with his English-meets-Southern accent, but whatever. When you pair a unique voice with a taste for both classic and modern beats, you get one exciting new talent. His flow falls nicely between U.K. grime and classic Southern fast-rapping, giving tracks like "Untamed," "Get Some Sleep" and "Underground" an international flair that we don't hear a lot around these parts. Keep your eyes on this kid. And for that matter, make sure you keep an eye out for Belmont University's rising class of new rappers."

"Party & Bullsh*t: This week in Nashville Hip Hop"

"* And speaking of young kids we just found out about, have you heard BRIT's new tune "Donald Trump"? So. Fucking. Dope. It premiered on Good Music All Day the other, uh, day, and I must have listened to it 10, maybe 15 times since. BRIT has an awesome UK Grime-meets-Dirty South flow that I can't get enough of. Which actually works out really well, since he's on the new track "Run" with hometown favorites Stix Izza and Dee Goodz (which also dropped this week)." - Nashville Scene

Bio

Born and raised in Peterborough, England, BRIT takes influence from classic UK grime, Southern Hip Hop, and West Coast Artists such as: Kano, Big K.R.I.T and Kendrick Lamar. Focusing on lyrical content and being genuine as an artist, he makes music that reflects on his everyday life, from the struggles he has with people around him to the problems he has with the current music industry. BRIT is truly focused on taking the image he has made for himself in his life and projecting it onto the international scene to show that you can be yourself and still be successful in music.
