London mc Terminator frees the realness on his newest Behind Barz freestyle for Link Up TV. With bars such as “German whip looks cold / your son’s room’s got mould”, T decides to deconstruct the persona of a trapper within the current music scene. Commenting on those who “spend your mum’s month wage on champagne for a slapper”, T’s on a mission to tear down the false imagery of luxury and excess often promoted in the rap scene. It’s a ‘family first’ mentality from Terminator, and in a genre where rented cars and chains are flaunted in abundance, it’s a sentiment that is worth expressing.
While T’s sluggish ‘Darkside’ style of spitting may not be everyone’s cup of tea, he’s undoubtedly a UK legend. Check the freestyle above.
