Ever keen to spotlight, fresh new talent, That Grape Juice introduces to you Blaze Blackheart.
The Zambian-born / London-bred rapper is the subject of mounting buzz within the British industry. For, with his uniquely quirky sound, Blaze serves as one of the most refreshing UK Hip-Pop acts to emerge in some time..
He admits to drawing creatively from an interesting array of artists; asserting “Shakespeare taught me how to rap… how to put words together”, while 2Pac provided my musical inspiration”.
In carving out his own lane, Blaze has shunned the staple topics of violence and hyper-masculinity often found in popular rap. Instead, the self-styled ‘Gentleman of Hip Hop’, talks only of what he knows: real life, real feelings and the moments and situations that capture his true emotions.
Discovered, and now managed by James Merritt of Kiss 100, Blaze is currently hitting the live circuit, playing his music to an ever-increasing number of new fans. You can catch the newcomer on 1st February at London’s Embassy Club.
In the meanwhile, take a listen to Blaze’s new single ‘I Feel Alright’ below – which gets the That Grape Juice stamp of approval.
