Hackney-born Newcastle resident Reali-T offers a witty flow that crackles through No Change. Reali-T’s flow doesn’t rely on rhythmic gymnastics, sticking to a delivery that puts the lyrical content front and centre. And it needs to, because the wordplay here is off the charts good, and will have you pausing and replaying line-by-line.

The heart of the track can be summed up in the line “Someone said I do real rap so boom bap’s what they expect / Why put me in a box, especially when I’m not dead yet’. Produced by Illektre, alongside the genre-grounding snappy hi-hats and sub bass, there is a wonky vibraphone sound that warps in and out of focus, making a beautiful hazy canvas.
