Slew Dem originator Chronik gets militant in the video for his latest track ‘Deepest Darkest’
Active with the much revered Slew Dem Crew since 2005, East London MC Chronik is one of the grime scene’s more colourful characters, with a fondness for violent lyrics and a much publicised stint in prison which spawned the infamous 2011 ‘Free Chronik’ mixtape and comeback track ‘The Ring’.
His latest offering is typically hardcore in content. ‘Deepest Darkest’ sees General Chronik going in on a Keyboard Kid 206 beat, with a video that features the man himself leading the ‘Slew Dem Rebel Army’ in the fictional African Republic of Uduno – guns, tanks and massive crocodiles aplenty. The single is released June 3rd on No Hats No Hoods.
