Manchester's Dámì Sule shares laid-back UK rap single and video 'Rolling Deep'

Loaded with the potent, relatable lyrics that we've come to expect from Sule...

Manchester rapper Dámì Sule is making big moves this year as he prepares to release his forthcoming EP ‘So Far, Still Going’ in the coming months. Having already put out two singles from the project, ‘Taking L’s’ and ‘Hide & Seek’, the underground talent is today treating fans to a brand new track, entitled ‘Rolling Deep’, complete with a vibrant music video.

Born in Lagos, Nigeria but raised as a Mancunian, the people of 0161 have a real gem on their hands with this rising prospect. His journey into rap was a fairly unconventional one, beginning with a love for poetry before discovering he could convey even more emotion while speaking over a beat.

The new single comes loaded with the potent, relatable lyrics that we’ve come to expect from Sule so far, striking a balance between the decision to risk it all and chase your dreams or submitting to a life trapped in the system.

Drawing upon the dreamy UK rap sound of his previous two releases and upping the ante with his emotive, soul-bearing wordplay, Dámì makes it known that the path to achieving your goals is never easy but will be worth it in the end – hence the title ‘Rolling Deep’.

“Heavy is the heart but my belly never rest, stressing takes a part when I’m feeling ever blessed but no one really cares keep going,” he raps in the first verse of the track. 

Directed by Dane Buca, the colourful new music video sees the rapper kick back at a boozy house party with friends, perfectly matching with the easy-going, mellow vibe of the single.
