Elf Kid, the Lewisham grime MC who came up with his crew The Square, has released his debut single and video “Golden Boy”.
The track, named “Golden Boy” because of Elf’s status on Lewisham High Street, has a sample of Amerie’s classic R&B track “One Thing” that has been reworked into some sunny, bouncy grime instrumental.
Elf Kid adds some convincing verses to the amazing Lolingo-produced riddim, while the video has him and his boys skanking through out Lewisham. The video is fun and carries the energy of the track well, never taking itself too seriously, without losing any credibility.
The new single is out now on No Hats No Hood Records, and you can download it here, packaged with a handful of remixes, as well as the instrumental.
