Ever since 2015’s “Lock Arff” (and their debut release Don’t Panic) South London collective Section Boyz have continued to lead the way for UK Rap’s newest generation. Two years — and a heavy Drake co-sign — later, they continue to bang out hard-hitting, roadworthy cuts for the masses.
For their latest, Littlez, Inch, Sleeks, Knine, Swift and Deepee liberate a new visual for “Step In,” the lead-off track from their March mixtape Soundcheck. In the clip (shot by rising star director Reynold Maunze of BoxMotion), the crew find themselves in the middle of an underground female boxing match. At some point, Swift even receives a tarot card reading. All-in-all, the dark, brooding clip is a perfect match for the song’s infectious hook, delivered by Inch:
Step in, bare weed smoke when I step in
Nike hangers on when I step in
Man fi know themself when I step in, wah?
