At approximately 6.35pm on April 2nd one of the most promising acts in the UK right now posted a picture to Twitter with the simple caption #WeRunTheBlock.
The photo see’s Croydon hailing Bonkaz signing a contract in a board room, alongside an image of the Sony Music logo. This can only let our imaginations presume that Bonkaz has signed his first single, “We Run The Block” (which you may have noticed hasn’t even touched the internet except through a series of viral Vines and performance videos), to Sony Music.
1xtra’s DJ Target later revealed that Bonkaz had indeed signed to his Sony/Pitched Up label, via Twitter:
If his independent attitude and exceptional work rate are anything to go by, this picture serves serious promise and hope for the New Generation. It’s inevitable that this track is about to get propelled into the biggest hit single this year.
