Backroad Gee – A YO feat. BG & TizzTrap. An exclusive performance for Vevo DSCVR, the channel for the best in new music.
Most UK rap fans know about Backroad Gee from “Party Popper.” Released on the first day of 2020, the breakout track almost immediately turned the self-described “under the radar” rapper into a dude on many radars. Grand Theft Auto even put the belligerent banger on its soundtrack. In keeping with the game’s violent vibe, Gee and his crew sported rocket launchers in his “A YO” vid, one of a several tracks that Gee’s been serving to his fanbase this year. It’s a smart strategy to get ears accustomed to his unique voice, with its low-end rumble and herky-jerky flow. Raised by Congolese parents, Gee speaks four languages. “I understand life from a lot of different angles,” he says, and attributes his broad musical vision to his Congolese heritage. “It influences everything. How I sound, and how I come across, and even how I structure my music.” These DSCVR performances of “A YO” and “Take Time” find him in full command, fitting nicely in the barrage of one-offs and remixes he’s put out in 2021. UK rap is sizzling right now, and Gee is clearly one of its most interesting voices.
