Bristol figure Blacksmith links with UK rap legend Skinnyman on new single ‘Price Of Love’.
Blacksmith is a significant figure in the city, an MC, producer, and promoter, continually seeking to advance underground culture. His latest release utilises production from New York studio kingpin Statik Selektah, blending aspects of hip-hop heritage with fresh ideas.
Out now, it’s a potent, dynamic return, up-front in all the right ways. The lyrics question what love truly is, with Blacksmith speaking from the heart; his punchy flow peppers the percussive production, the MC chopping it up from the off.
Skinnyman blesses the track at its finale, uniting two key figures within UK music. Blacksmith comments…
“’Price Of Love’ as a song talks about the amount of work that goes into trying to make anything you love or are passionate about work, even when it feels like it won’t. Whether that be chasing dreams and all the uncertainty that comes with the highs and low, to working on relationships with others or even internal work with yourself – what are you willing to do to live the life you would love?”
