Birmingham, UK rapper Tana and rising emcee Cristale for this upbeat drill jam titled “Shubz” which serves as a testament to both rapper’s rising status and lyrical prowess. Nothing is left to chance as both emcees trade hard-hitting bars laced with witty lines and stylish cadences. The two also bring their Jamaican heritage to the mix flipping patois slangs in a seamless manner.

The video is quite engaging and creative as it blends performance shots of the duo and also puts them in a live rap battle performance setting adding that extra flavor into the mix.

The Birmingham native is the grandson of Sir Coxsone Dodd (one of founders of the legendary Studio One label), and has worked with Aitch, Unknown T, M1llionz as well as supporting AJ Tracey, Mist and Fredo on the road.

About Cristale: Brixton rapper Cristale has been touted as a serious one to watch after bagging spots in Complex UK’s – 24 UK Rappers To Watch and Amazon Music UK’s Ones To Watch for 2022. Her latest single ‘Militant’ (out on Black Butter) is a statement of intent for what many people see as her breakout year, after a year or so honing her craft in the studio.
