Today sees rising West London rapper Tia Carys release a brand-new freestyle titled ‘Refugee’, premiering on GRM Daily.
Following the release of her debut EP ‘EnRoot’ last year, Tia Carys is back with the incredible ‘Refugee’ freestyle. The hard-hitting freestyle explores themes of Carys tough upbringing and discovering music with semantics of struggle, authoring and personal growth. Carys raps effortlessly over the near three-minute track, showcasing her rap prowess through the combination of critically upfront lyrics and demanding rhymes. The accompanying sepia-filtered video sees Carys in the studio delivering her bars with numerous destructive clips of the Powerpuff Girls edited in.
Speaking about ‘Refugee’, Carys says… “There’s a lot of underlying pain in this one. I remember being in the situation and my only saving grace was knowing that in a few years’ time, it will give me more of an incredible story to write about and share when I have my dream career. Now life’s done a full 180.”
Carys will also take to the 1Xtra stage this year at both Reading and Leeds Festival later this month.
