2017 Favourites

I love looking back at my favourites for the year, especially memories (which is coming in a seperate post) and music. Overall, the British scene has won this year … there has been too many bangers that have come out since the beginning of the year that I know I’m definitely forgetting loads in this post; just generally Kojo Funds, Yxng Bane, Lotto Boyzz, J Hus, Tion Wayne etc. have really switched up the game. Also, shoutout to Shef and Double S (British Ugandan artists) who have recently released a banger that quickly became a favourite (listen here).
