It has been close to a year since its release but Nafe Smallz made it onto Charlie Sloth’s infamous ‘Fire in The Booth’ on BBC Radio 1xtra for the first time recently, rocking up over 2 million views.
Coming under the wing of Young Kyle in 2011 at just 14, now in 2017, Smallz’ profile is quickly on the up and up. Appearing on OVO Sound Radio on Beats 1, then recently performing with Drake in London, Nafe is becoming a grinding force in UK urban music.
His one take in ‘FITB’ revolves in two parts, showcasing his lyricism and flow in each beat change. His use of auto-tune works with the vibe he brings to the mic. Showcasing his lifestyle in seven minutes shows that Smallz has so much to offer in 2017.
