Jelani Blackman, Biig Piig Combine On ‘Rise’

A song about love, commitment, and joy...

Jelani Blackman combines with Biig Piig on new song ‘Rise’.

The multi-faceted rapper has always had a soulful touch, an innate musicality that let him stand out from the pack. Continuing to surge ahead, Jelani’s latest song is a loved up hymn, an ode to commitment that leaves his feelings exposed.

Constructed alongside Biig Piig, the Nine8 Collective vocalist adds her neo-soul hues to Jelani Blackman’s evocative songwriting. Out now on 18 Records / MNRK UK, ‘Rise’ is as tender as they come – a beautifully affecting piece of music, one that revels in the quiet comforts of a relationship.

Speaking on the track, Jelani says…

“Being in love and waking up next to the person you wanna be with and the sun’s out is one of the best feelings in the world. Couldn’t have asked anyone better to share this song with; me and Biig Piig met last year at a festival, I think her voice and lyrics bring out all the feeling of that emotion.”

Biig Piig adds: “This song really captures a moment in time, when you’re with someone and love is so intense, it’s like the golden hour all the time”.

Tune in now.
