Devlin – The Devil In
Not many artists can boast gold-selling albums, multiple Top 10 hits – as well as the arguably greater honour of being grime godfather Wiley’s favourite MC (Devlin just featured on his new single ‘Holy Grime’). But Devlin is no ordinary rapper.
From his hungry teenage mixtape days to his time riding high in the charts with stars like Ed Sheeran and Katy B guesting on his albums, he has remained Dagenham’s own street poet: an impassioned, virtuoso talent driven by the need to describe life as it is for underdogs and ordinary people. And after some time out of the game, Devlin’s ready to restake his position in the scene with new album ‘The Devlin In’ which features man of the moment Skepta on hit single ’50 Grand’, as well as previous underground hits ‘Bitches’ and ‘Castella Freestyle’ and future classics ‘Cold Blooded’ and ‘Blow Your Mind feat. Maverick Sabre’.
