Manchester Rapper Murkz Puts An R&B Twist On The Drill Blueprint With "Message To My Ex"


July 02, 2020

UK drill right now is one of the most exciting hotbeds of experimentation. The genre once maligned for being too formulaic is now one of the most eclectic with artists and producers mixing in Afrobeats, jazz, grime and more traditional rap elements.

The latest take on the sound comes from Manchester rapper Murkz with something he's calling 'RnDrill'. Much like the R&G take on the grime sound, Murkz's new single "Message To My Ex" smooths out drill's rough edges with some surprising R&B grooves and soft piano melody as he tells us about an ex he just can't quit.
