808ink are back, and they’ve brought a new banger with them in ‘Flexing’.
A catchy Afrobeat groove and confident vocal delivery make this every bit the ego boost that you’d expect a song called ‘Flexing’ to be.
Who are 808ink? Producer 808Charmer and rapper Mumblez Black Ink, both from south London (or “Lundun”, as they like to call it). Active since 2013, the duo released their third album, Hungry, in November 2016. It includes guest spots from Kahlia Bakosi, Sam Wise and JD Reid.
Watch the boys get their flex on below.
‘Flexing (Side A)’ is the group’s first release on a major label, Island Records. It may well be the start of a new chapter for them.
