Down in the murky depths of south London lies the home of an infamous rap crew called 67. Frontman LD's "Live Corn" track triggered the effortless rise of the young, Chicago drill-loving clique in 2014 with an authenticity some rappers could only dream of having. The collective, made up of rappers ASAP, LD, Dimzy, Monkey, SJ, and Liquez—alongside a close-knit, family-like creative team—all individually hold their own weight, with each artist owning a distinctive ghostly flow. Last year's street anthem, "Take It There" captured their unfiltered collision of Chiraq Drill, UK street slang and London road politics in a way that we hadn't seen in... well, since forever.
67's In Skengs We Trust mixtape, and their absence but named involvement in the Chip vs Yungen saga, only created more questions to be asked: who and what the hell is 67? Then, like clockwork, their "Let's Lurk" track and video featuring road rap lord Giggs dropped with a sing-along chorus, ride or die, brother-loving lyrics and smooth yet unapologetic verses.
