January 14, 2021

Namesbliss is starting to raise questions as to what his sound is; is it grime or is it drill? Carving out his own lane with a hybrid of the UK's most cherished genres, Namesbliss tears up "Ruffian" with the best of both the grime and drill worlds.

At its heart is a gritty flow as if shelling on pirate radio, dropping incisive lyrics that focus on street politics peppered with football-related metaphors for good measure. The Sampah-produced beat is a creative fusion of grime and drill, blending booming riffs and industrial drum patterns, deftly capturing the essence of the UK underground in 2021 while paying homage to the forefathers.

Meanwhile, the video catches him in relatable settings, indoors and out, mic in hand and surrounded by his mates as they feed of each other's limitless energy. Take a look below.
