Double S teams up with the Godfather Wiley for – Get Paid.
Hot off its premiere on DJ Target’s 1Xtra show, Double S presents the long overdue collaboration between himself and the grime Godfather, Wiley and result is pretty damn special.
Produced by Vee Music, the frequency drops from the start with the thundering, deep string bass bursting straight in to play whilst an instant ear-worm of a synth repetitively trampolines enthusiastically across it like an excited kid in a sweet shop. Cue Double S with an opening hook before slipping effortlessly in to his bars of the first verse and lining up round two for Wiley to drop some weighty input.
Having given an explosive reminder of his ‘Style & Flows’ on his last record, featuring none other than BBK CEO JME, Double S gained immense support from a lengthy list of online tastemakers including Noisey, Earmilk, MTV & Hypebeast as well as securing a wealth of radio support in the form of features, playlists and plays from the likes of BBC Radio 1 & 1Xtra, Kiss, Capital, Beats 1 & more.
One of the original pirate radio emcees on the grime scene, the legacy of Double S also stretches back to a number of influential crews including ‘Shoddy Crew’, who he co-founded and included fellow grime artist Chip, and Marvell, who were central throughout the golden years of grime. To date the rapper has collaborated with heavyweights such as Skepta, JME, Frisco, Tempa T, Chip and Cadet with ‘Get Paid’ adding to this serious roster and another future classic for the grime hall of fame.
