AJ Tracey – Pasta

AJ Tracey releases the second track off his forthcoming EP Lil Tracey

The West London emcee previewed the video’s vacation setting just a few short weeks ago on Snapchat – with the final cuts being put together for the flex-heavy scenes. The entire production is solid and has potential to catch on as a smooth, yet heavy vibe, but the overall production is a bit tame by AJ Tracey’s past grime standards. Lil Tracey will come at an important time for the UK grime scene – with Drake’s new cosigns emerging, Section Boyz collaborating and Skepta’s mythical Konnichiwa fully in the rear-view.

“Pasta” follows “Buster Cannon” off the EP, the premiere track featured heavier grime sounds. Diversifying tones should not be held against the new release, although Lil Tracey will be held under a microscope in the grime scene as AJ has emerged as one of the scene’s favorite young artists this year.
