Grim Sickers is without doubt one of the best MCs in the Grime game right now and after our last article, when we put him head to head with Izzie Gibbs and it is fair to say that Grim has way more longevity to his name.
Grim Sickers returns with Open The Till and he even manages to get two of the biggest names in music: Ghetts and Mike Skinner on the track, bringing their own vibe, turning the trap and trill beat inside out in their own damn way.
The track got it’s premiere on DJ Target’s Show on 1Xtra last night and that has to be one of the biggest co-signs a UK artist could look for, big moves for Sickers for sure.
Sickers also shows a new flair and confidence on the track with bars like “I ran passed every MC that I rated“, it couldn’t be called taking shots but he is sure living up to his name of ‘Intercontinental Champion’, coined by Mr Skinner himself.
In our interview with Grim, he spoke of his Intercontinental Champ EP coming out soon and a body of work is exactly what we need from Sickers now that we have had a very heavy handed introduction to him with tracks like Kane, Bread and now Open The Till.
We will let the track do all of the talking because you have to hear this majestic coming together for three awesome heavyweights over this bouncy track that will get you going gun fingers all over the place.
