Bundi Turns Up The Temperature With His "Summertime In The Manor" Video

Want to bump up the thermostat even more this season? Listen to this UK rapper's latest tune, "Summertime in the Manor."

UK rapper Bundi delivers the ultimate summer anthem, “Summertime In The Manor.” He premiered his single on BBC Radio 1Xtra and has been working his way around the airwaves since. Even UK grime and hip hop head honchos Charlie Sloth, Target, Toddla T and Mistajam give the MC a nod.

The sounds of Jay Z and Nas made their way to East End, London where Bundi fused his experiences with old school hip hop. The so-called "rap version of Jesus,” he developed a knack for telling it how it is and the courage to expose real issues. Take “These Gassed Up Lying Rappers” for example. Only one of his industry exposés, the lyricist dodges gimmicks and masquerades that all rappers fall prey to. He stays true to the original standards of hip hop. Bundi’s music always tells a story - whether it be a tale of a sexually abused girl or working hard to accomplish your dream. There’s no stunting or flashing dollars. His relatable style gains him fans worldwide.

New hit “Summertime In The Manor” lives up to Bundi’s genuineness. From calorie counting for a sexy beach bod to romantic, whimsical flings, the East End rapper understands what comes along with hot and sunny weather. And he knows at all we want to do is share some Hennessy and Ciroc with our homies and embrace a carefree state of being. The song and video takes on a modern feel to DJ Jazzy Jeff and Fresh Prince’s “Summertime,” brought to London’s streets.

“Summertime, there’s more fun in the summertime.” Pop it, blast it and put it on replay right here.

Family Ties: Skip Marley Links With Damian Marley In Visuals For "That's Not True"

Skip Marley blends family and his passion for music in the video for "That's Not True," taking fans on an organic journey throughout Miami's Little Haiti area.

Directed by Andrew Sandler (Chris Brown, Ella Mai), the 22-year-old drives through his city while chatting with locals as some take part in slamming dominoes and others simply living life. Released last month, "That's Not True," keeps true to the 22-year-old's mission of love and understanding as the song highlights strife and disasters that have become normal in society. From infidelities to self-doubt, the grandson of Bob Marley reminds us all to move with love and grace.

Marley's uncle and Grammy-winning artist Damian "Jr. Gong" Marley drops his poignant verse, with the two splitting the screen showing just how well they're carrying out the Marley legacy.

The younger Marley has steadily generated heat for himself. After scoring a major hit with Katy Perry for "Chained To Rhythm," in 2017,  Marley released the critically acclaimed single "Lions." He's also paid homage to his grandfather with a touching cover of "Johnny Was" for the Idris Elba film, Yardie.

Marley has been keeping himself busy, exploring all aspects of his artistry from shooting the clip for this song, to most recently performing at the Kaya Fest on April 20.

There's no telling what else Marley has up his sleeve, but it's safe to say that the reggae genre is in good hands.

The EP should fit nicely with Wu-Tang's four-part docuseries. The last time the group dropped a project was in 2017 with the release of The Saga Continues. In 2019, the rap group has already released their docuseries, their EP drops this Friday, but they also have a 10-episode Hulu series inspired by them on the way, with rapper Dave East portraying a character similar to Method Man.
