A.M. Sniper Releases New Music Video For “Hype” Feat. CURREN$Y

A.M. SNiPER flashes back into the limelight with ‘Hype’, the first single from his forthcoming debut album. The British-Cypriot rapper is renowned for teaming up with some of the biggest names in music across both the UK and US scenes from his base in Ayia Napa (the original hotspot and mainstay for UK Garage, Grime and Urban music in Europe), hosting and collaborating with a bonafide plethora of stars including Chris Brown, Tyga, Rick Ross, Wiley, JME, Julian Marley, Dj Jaguar Skills and Memphis Bleek to name just a few.

The video premiered via World Star Hip Hop and has received over 1.5 million views to date and has been referred to as “The Best Hip Hop Video of 2016”-  http://www.worldstarhiphop.com/videos/video.php?v=wshhDzFhmK7527mKy3tQ the tale via VEVO is a similar one with over half a million people flocking to see the new joint there too: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YV9G_-t6v38

Premiered on the BBC R1/1Xtra Rap show, A.M. SNiPER joins forces with one of hiphop’s  undisputed underground kings, New Orleans rapper Currensy, long-term friend and collaborator of Wiz Khalifa. The song is a trademark laid-back, late-night jam that oozes understated class as the two rappers combine to wax lyrical about operating on the low – A.M. SNiPER on his operations in Ayia Napa and Spitta Andretti on that Jet Life.

A.M. SNiPER’s musical prowess stems as far back as the early 2000s, where as a budding teenager in the UK Garage pioneers’ So Solid Crew, he produced a third of their sophomore album. This finesse and adept appreciation of authenticity and culture is reflected on the new single. The track samples A Tribe Called Quest’s  “Butter” with vocal cuts from the late Phife Dawg and pays tribute to similar icons – Bob Marley for instance – two artists concerned with the art and the vision rather than the hype. Similarly, A.M. SNiPER and Spitta have remained consistently releasing dope material and have again raised the bar!

Set for a large summer of shows alongside some huge fellow UK acts lined up alongside Lethal Bizzle, Wiley, Section Boyz, Fat Man Scoop, Tim Westwood, Jaguar Skills, it is set to be the biggest year to date for A.M. SNiPER.
