Dutch, Desperado and Karmah Cruz link up on what is fast establishing itself online as an underground anthem, ‘Say Narda’, with the music video being premiered on Link Up TV. Karmah and Dutch provide the hook, with East London emcee Dutch laying down a tough first verse, as Desperado comes in to complete the collaborative giant.
The hypnotic, afrobeats-influenced rap production has R&B undertones, as Karmah’s repeated chants on the chorus and Dutch too contrast each other, the rough with the smooth. Dutch delivers a hard-edged verse as does Desperado, both spitting about the VIP parties, late night drinking, lavish living and sensual moments.
The record is the second outing from Desperado as he sets his sights on 2018. Having had a vivacious career to date, the South London emcee is targeting a release early in the year for his ‘Phase 2′ mixtape. The previous volume of the tape birthed some of Desperado’s biggest solo smashes including ‘Kawasaki’ featuring Corleone and Skrapz, and featured records with artists such as SafOne, Pak Man and his fellow OGz, P Money and Blacks.
Previously Desperado has run the grime gauntlet, proving his determination and skill as a mic controller in the true sense of the word. Appearing on both Lord of the Mics and Risky Roads, his talent has been categorically tested through on the spot freetyles and clashes, and he has always come out on top. Both as a solo artist and together with his fellow OG’z, his notoriety as a wheel up emcee and crowd pleaser has also awarded him spots on some of the biggest grime stages including Eskimo Dance, The Den and Fabric and his catalogue of music includes features with Krept and Konan, Skepta, Asher D, Timbo STP and most recently Dutch rapper, Kalibwoy.
With preparation in full effect and the music leading in to Phase 2 sounding like fire, 2018 is looking like a good year already for Desperado.
