Divine Count Stone - 'Move Up'

Making a very welcome return to the scene after an extended hiatus, Divine Count Stone aka Bionic, original London Posse badman emcee is back! The original ambassador of UK Hip Hop has returned with a brand new look and a fresh new sound.

Looking to drop his debut solo release next month, here's the first taster, a self produced cut called 'Move Up', skilfully mixed and mastered by renowned UK producer No Sleep Nigel. This infectious track encompasses a diversity of styles and influences that Stone has distilled over the years, and weaves them together to get his positive message across.

Stone explains “People might be expecting some gangster rap. But it’s not that. I wanted a chorus that says to the youths Move Up, and originally we were going to call the track “The only way is up”. But after finishing the track we liked Move Up and really just wanted to put it out there for the youths, a positive mind ting”.

I'm just glad he's back! Big up yaself Bionic!!
