“I love to tear people’s faces off with my lyrics.”
North London MC Lady Lykez has teamed up with Scratchclart, aka Scratcha DVA, for a new EP.
Muhammad Ali combines the MC’s hard-hitting lyricism with Scratcha DVA’s potent blend of dancehall, gqom and grime. Additional production from London-based producer D-Lux is featured on the track ‘Lyke U’, a “love tune” written about Lykez’s ex.
Speaking about her ferocious vocal performances on the release, Lady Lykez explains: “Sometimes as lyricists, you can end up overthinking everything which can kill the fun, this time I wanted to just let it flow.”
Muhammad Ali is out now via Hyperdub. Check out the cover art and tracklist below.
