‘Don’ is the official video and third release from Ocean Wisdom’s forthcoming album ‘Wizville’, which has some huge features including Method Man, Dizzee Rascal, P Money, Chester P, Rodney P, Roots Manuva and Jehst. The British rapper, who was recently interviewed by Complex, displays his beastly lyrical prowess over busy, up-tempo percussion and a catchy beat produced by Pete Cannon, his flows rhythmic over the instrumental, as just completely obliterates it, switching up the flows effortlessly, bars proving beyond doubt why he is levels ahead of the competition, brimming with confidence.
DJ Semtex has highlighted it as one of ‘5 Tracks You Need To Know’ on BBC Radio 1Xtra, whilst Mistjam has been supporting on his drive time show, urging listeners “Do yourself a favour and check him out, he is ridiculous with the bars”. Ocean Wisdom is definitely someone that you should watch out for in 2018, as he brings his new and innovative sound of UK Grime and Hip Hop, a hybrid sound that makes him exciting to listen to. He was hailed as “the future of UK Hip-Hop” by Complex Magazine with a style described as “Mercurial” by Dummy Magazine, and he regularly tips a million streams on tracks uploaded to his Spotify account and his videos uploaded to Youtube have hit over 15 million views making him quite an astounding, extraordinary act.
Through his versatility and unparalleled lyrical creativity, stage presence and flow, Ocean Wisdom delivers major impressions in each aspect of his artistry, from performing to main-stage crowds of over 10,000 people to dethroning Eminem as the ‘fastest rapper’, after managing to fit an impressive 4.45 words per second into his track ‘Walkin’ compared to Eminem’s 4.31 words per second in ‘Rap God’, as documented by UniLad. This article would go on to become viral, drawing praise for Wizzy as well as being commented on by some of the industry’s forerunners such as The Game, D12 and Akon.
“This album is the culmination of years of dedication to the art of rap. I want to push the boundaries and redefine what it means to be at the top level as a lyricist. Ambition and practise makes perfect and this album will show that…My team and I have been dedicated to the task and we have all delivered, we have bought together legends from all eras and genres around the world and we have left no stone unturned. The levels we have attempted to reach are incomparable to anything prior and it is undoubtedly a significant deviation from any sound previously heard in the UK Hip Hop scene, all that is left now is to share it with the world which we are all very excited to do” – Ocean Wisdom
