Everyone very much knows about London’s grime MCs, however the Midlands has a lot of up and coming talent as well as established veterans. Uncle Mez is part of the new generation of MCs who proudly flies the flag for Nottingham.
The title Magnum thankfully doesn’t refer to extra-large condoms, but rather an alcoholic drink. It’s a tonic wine which is said to be a sexual stimulant, but despite that, it’s just a really good drink. It’s the drill rapper’s equivalent to Ciroc, but the difference is grime MCs don’t stunt with it in music videos.
But the fact that Mez can make a banger using something so simple is impressive. Mez has always had his signature D Double E inspired flow fuelled with energy (in the case of this song fuelled by Magnum). The hook is more of a reload bar than anything else, but yet again, easy to sing-a-long to which is what’s most important in a hook. Mez is clearly having fun with this track with the playful punchlines lined with innuendo.
The track has already received support from major radio stations such as BBC Radio 1Xtra and now we’re shouting about it too. Don’t miss out on the hype of Uncle Mez or Magnum
