After recently joining Music Gateway’s Artist Development roster, fresh young rapper Rageouz dropped his latest single ‘Privacy’ today!
‘Privacy’ is the lead track from Rageouz’s upcoming EP ‘Building Blocks’. Start streaming it now on Spotify – you’ll want to be in-the-know with one of East London’s finest. Read more about him below!
Born & bred in East London, music has been an integral part of Rageouz’s upbringing.
Before adopting his now signature name, young Omar Adams recalls discovering Dizzee Rascal’s album ‘Boy In Da Corner’. This 15-piece album proved a real revelation for Adam’s, subsequently sparking his profound love for grime. As a result, Rageouz cites Rascal, Wiley, Kano & Skepta as some of his key influences.
Spending much of his teens trawling through pirate radio stations, he began coming up with his own bars, inspired by his rap & grime heroes.
As Rageouz tells us, ‘Privacy’ is about “‘gaining the ability to filter out the nonsense” in order to stay focused. It’s an influential single that’s translated this rap scene maverick’s focused attitude into honest, alt-rap beats.
Previously, Rageouz partnered with Ayar under the name One50, where he then went on to tour with Tiana Major, Eyez and Mic Lowery. This experience, along with performances across Europe, became key to establishing Rageouz as an artist in demand (in the UK and beyond).
Both GRM Daily and The MOBO Awards have featured Rageouz’s previous work, also with significant air-play support from Reprezent, Radar & Pulse 88. As stalwart of the UK grime scene, ‘Privacy’ sees Rageouz expressing his versatile character. Masterfully he’s bridging the gaps between a typical rap, hip-hop and trap sound.
We’re pleased to have Rageouz join the Music Gateway family! Save & stream ‘Privacy’ for yourself; he brings a much welcomed breath of fresh air to the world of grime!
