Skrapz's Classic '80s Baby' Mixtape Has Made It To Streaming Services


December 13, 2021

Fans of rap heavyweight Skrapz will be warmed with the news that they no longer have to resort to YouTube to take in his iconic 2014 mixtape 80's Baby because it's now finally available on all streaming platforms.

Although the West Londoner has evolved a lot over the past few years, and has released a number of top tier projects including Different Cloth back in 2017 and most recently Be Right Back, 80s Baby remains a fan favourite and one whose place was cemented in UK rap history long ago. Capturing specific moments in his life, this project documents his thoughts and experiences through, from the painful to the laid back reflections.

Besides being a pain-filled document of his thoughts and experiences, and a shining example of his talent, 80s Baby was also a chance to see Skrapz round up his hip-hop influences, spitting over some classic instrumentals from Mobb Deep, The Fugees, Biggie, Tupac and more. Since then the rapper has grown to be an towering figure in the rap scene and this is one of the projects that cemented his status.
