Track on ‘On The Radar’: 'Trading Darts' feat Cyrus Malachi

Tell us the story behind the track: I DJ for Phoenix Da Icefire, Triple Darkness and Orphans of Cush. Cyrus is the first guy I linked with from the cliques. Him and his daughter were at my yard and I played him the track. He said it reminded him of that battle rap boom bap ish and he said he had something for it. A week laterr it was laced. He’s my favourite MC in the UK alongside Phoenix right now.
