Despite the fact that he’s one of the scene’s most veteran MCs D Double E has somehow never released a solo studio album. Now, all that looks set to change with the Newham General taking to Twitter last week to announce that his debut album Jackuum! will be released next February. On Friday he gave fans a taste of the upcoming album, enlisting none other than the Godfather himself, Wiley for its first drop: ‘Better Than The Rest’.
In the accompanying video, shot by director Saloum N’Jie, D Double E wanders a graffitied railway yard, delivering bars to the camera and bopping through painted alleyways while sporting a geometric camo-print tracksuit.Wiley – soon jumps on set to deliver his verse, bigging up Lady Leshur in the process. There’s even a couple of cameos from the likes of Jammer and Uncle Mez. Check out the video for ‘Better Than The Rest’ below.
