HERITAGE: Headie One Carves Out His Sound As He Returns Home With "Losses & Winnings" (2017)


June 15, 2021

When North London hero Headie One returned to us back in 2017, even he couldn't have predicted what the next few years would bring. Nonetheless, the video for "Losses & Winnings", filmed not long after his return and even opens with a shot of him leaving prison, feels like a mission statement.

By the end of the year, his Drillers X Trappers tape with RV would land (which featured "Losses & Winnings"), followed soon after by The One and his landmark "Know Better" collab (again with RV). From there, the momentum was unstoppable and he's yet to slow down even a little.

He may not have known that awards and international success were just around the corner, but it's clear he knew he was going to put everything into this stage of his career — and boy did he make it count.
