After hearing the track first played on Logan Sama’s Kiss FM show last month, we now finally see the release of the single ‘Headshot Season’ from the East London MC Rival.
Lately we’ve heard Rival experiment with his music, showcasing the different styles that he is capable of, such as the deeper tracks heard on ‘Lord Rivz’ like ‘Save Me’, featuring Ghetts, and ‘Heartache’, which has proved to be very popular with his supporters.
However with this single we hear Rival take it back to the “Homicide Writer” sound, with a track that cannot be described as anything less than straight up greaze. Underneath Rival’s fierce lyrics is a chilling instrumental from Preditah, that’s a far cry from his bubbly instrumentals, sounding more like the violent and twisted sibling of ‘Circles’.
As well as the original we are also treated to a remix, featuring the likes of the Sith Lord Roachee, Discarda, Big Narstie, D Power, Ego, Merky Ace, Killa P and Tre Mission, and the acapella, open for any producers out there to remix.
