Frequent collaborators and South London rap heavyweights Youngs Teflon and Tiny Boost have joined forces on a new mixtape Purple Hearts, their first joint project.
A few hours before dropping the album, Youngs Teflon and Tiny Boost announced a U.K. tour and shared the visuals for “Bidness.” In the video, the dynamic duo make it rain at the strip club while reflecting on their journey from the streets to the music industry.
The duo teased the project in April, promising to drop off a “classic” project. A month later, Youngs Teflon declared, “The Moment you have been waiting for has finally arrived” as he announced the release date.
“A lot of works went in to this , the anticipation hasn’t gone unnoticed !!! WE have definitely put together a CLASSIC for you !!!” he penned on Instagram.
Shortly before releasing the project, Youngs Teflon went on a rant against the lack of critical voices in the U.K. music scene giving artists much needed feedback.
“We need bloggers in the UK like Charlemagne that will straight up tell u your music is trash,” he wrote. “There’s no way in hell u ppl actually like the music you’re hyping up rn. It’s getting disrespectful now. Stop lying man.”
After going back and forth with his followers over the topic, the “Nandos” hitmaker reverted to promo mode.
“I’m gonna stop coz I don’t wanna sound bitter. Im not,” he said, before adding, “I’m in the best position ever n about to sign a madness so yeah PURPLE HEARTS out at midnight‼️
