It’s a Raw and Potent Take from The Grime Riser
A true all-round creative talent, West-london’s Posh takes on a number of different genres and approaches with his music and acting ability. His new single showcases precisely the kind of talent he’s bringing to the table, visceral and ruthless in his approach, it’s a powerful piece of drill-influenced Grime that’s in touch with the current sound of London.
Raised in West London, Posh has always strived to make music for “the people like me who fit into everywhere and nowhere at the same time.” The son of a Russian immigrant and a working-class mother from Essex, he grew up in a house that celebrated all types of music. It’s this inclusive attitude that’s lead to his adept ability with music and positive attitude towards his craft.
For Posh, music is all about perspective. Even his name is a product of the frustration he faced growing up. “I’ve always had a chip on my shoulder,” he says, “I looked a certain way, sounded a certain way, and I was surrounded by certain people, but I didn’t have all the advantages those people had.”
