BackRoad Gee Is 'Reporting Live (From The Back Of The Roads)' On Essential New Tape

October 29, 2021

Today, riding high on a relentless tidal wave of success, BackRoad Gee unveils his highly-anticipated 18-track project titled Reporting Live (From The Back Of The Roads).

There's a type of urgency that radiates whenever BRG gets on the mic; his attention to delivery, manipulation of rhythm and flow, and his visceral storytelling abilities show that he's cut from a different cloth.

The first half of the project is an enthralling cross-pollination of grime and drill, held together by his idiosyncratic rap style, as seen on charged-up opener "Live In The Flesh" and then the previously-released "Enough Is Enough", where he links up with heavyweights Lethal Bizzle and Jme, delivering the empowering mantra "life is rough, woke up, said enough is enough!". Elsewhere, previously released bangers "See Level" featuring Nigerian superstar Olamide, "Fear Nuttin" and "Bad Mind" resurface on the project.

The second half of the project shifts from the hard-hitting, punchy rap soundscapes to reveal the Afro-centric side of his artistic identity. He's joined by frequent collaborator Pa Salieu on "Crime Partner", and then by Stefflon Don on "Diamond In Da Dirt", the latter of which sees him lean into a more easy-going version of his rap style.

Another highlight comes on "Ancestors"—which has been given some visuals you can see below—where BRG and NSG combine their hit-making powers for a bright and jazzy, carnival-ready anthem.

Alongside this stellar new project, BRG has also been dipping his feet into the world of film and TV, making an historic appearance on the soundtrack for the movie The Harder They Fall alongside Jay-Z, Jadakiss and Conway The Machine.
