Micofcourse is on the rise. The little-known West London barrer has been grafting all year, raising his profile thanks to a Reece West diss, live performances at Keep Hush and The Next Legacy, and appearances on Sir Spyro's BBC Radio 1Xtra show. Although his discography is currently scarce—the only other song on his Spotify right now is last year's "Hungry"—he's returned this week with his first single of 2018.
"Of Course" is a collaboration with Tottenham lyricist Capo Lee, which sees the two MCs exchange eight bars at a time over a trap-tinged, reverb-drenched Alpha Redd production. The track is packed with cultural references spanning from Martin Luther King to Mike Tyson, and cutting-edge wordplay ("Italian Job when I run for the Ps / I've gotta go stretch out the dough, of course").
