We Plug To You... Franklyn - Just Being Frank

Hello people! Apologies for my inability to bring to you more quality music on a regular basis. Its my bad, honestly. But dont worry, I'm back and its all G.O.O.D MUSIC... Anyway, today I'll be plugging to you a certain Gospel Grime/Hip-Hop artist by the name of Franklyn. His mixtape came out in December last year but it just got to me a week ago and to be honest I have been bumping it on replay ever since...

Franklyn is a burgeoning rapper from Hackney, East London (can I hear a #TeamUK?) who's been making various appearances in the UK Gospel urban music scene for about two years now. With appearances on projects by several veterans on the scene such as Victizzle, Guvna B and Cadet, you can tell that Franklyn has been about and this recent solo project from the rapper was bound to be quality.

Anyways, lets cut right to the chase... The tracks you are about to hear are an extract of Franklyn's mixtape aptly titled 'Just being Frank'. Right off the jump, I should say that one thing I particularly like about this project is it's production... The production on the mixtape from beginning to end is just epic and what's even better is that Franklyn doesn't let the quality of the beat overshadow his lyrical dexterity all over this mixtape....

Okay, the first track you're about to listen to is called "These MC's" and as the name suggests, it is  a straight shot directed at other emcees and "fake" rappers making up false stories all in the name of spitting a hot verse but it also comes from a different angle in which Franklyn attests to his lyrical ability as well as his relationship with God. The track also features Brewer, who I must say, is a very talented young man. The production on this tune is actually very sick courtesy of Confectionery, it sounds Grimey with that fusion of Drum and Bass.

"These MCs":

This next track is called "Internal Bleeding" and it features the lovely Lola Godheld (who I must say is an amazing live performer). You see, when I review gospel artists, I do not just want to make it to be about how they are so into God because I feel as much as that is important, they (Gospel artists) have to be able to bring that top drawer quality of music regardless. With that said, this track from Franklyn is an amazing song! The message relates to everyone because we all have those moments when we think the world is against us and we think God is punishing us for things... Lola Godheld handles vocal duties on the chorus rather perfectly... Jheez!

"Internal Bleeding":

I actually feel like I should review every song on this mixtape because they're all definitely worth mentioning but because we gotta leave some songs for you to check out for yourself, the final song I'll be plugging to you from this mixtape is titled "Hear My Cry". On this one, Franklyn completely asks God the questions we all ask most times and having done that, he switches roles and answers the questions in a way full of wisdom that you would completely doubt his age if you knew it... The track features and is produced by Victizzle who I must say is some kinda Gospel "Timbaland" the way he works both the instrumentation and auto-tune on this song in such a perfectly blended style, check it out below.

"Hear My Cry":

The talent that Franklyn has got is undeniable and especially evident when you listen to the mixtape in its entirety which you most certainly should do. It will sound all the more better when you realise that this emcee is only 16... I am excitedly anticipating what Franklyn grows up to be and if he continues like this, I just know that I'm gonna be plugging him again to you soon. In the meantime though...
