“This is a serious thing, yeah, do you reckon I could get a MOBO nomination before I get facial hair?”. So starts the new track from Hardy Caprio, and based on his talent, output and baby-faced looks, you’d have to say there’s a chance.
#Hollywood [Take One] is the latest in a string of bangers by the Croydon rapper who only celebrated his 20th birthday a matter of months ago. You probably heard Hardy’s Love Song earlier in the year, and this track is every bit as impressive, proving he can handle old-school garage just as well as old-school grime.
Spitting over a flipped version of Daniel Bedingfield’s Gotta Get Thru This, Hardy’s signature witty punchlines and wordplay shine: “Them man love pop up like LiveJasmine”. This track is the perfect soundtrack to the second wave of summer we’re having, so don’t be surprised if you start hearing it everywhere very soon.
There’s a lot of hype around Hardy Caprio, and if he can keep this level up, a MOBO award before he gets facial hair might not be as crazy as it sounds.
