Riko Dan is a true OG, blessing radio sets, live shows, and records with his inimitably raw, gruff MCing for years. 2014 was a good year for the veteran—he embraced the new wave of grime producers, vocalling Texan producer Rabit’s wild “Black Dragons” beat, and was responsible for some of the most exciting sets on radio (see below).
Now, he’s kicked off 2015 with an entry into Fact’s freestyles series (check the others here), and it’s just too raw. Shot in gritty black and white in a cemetery in London, Riko goes in over a new Kahn & Neek instrumental, and crushes it. Check the video above.
