When it comes to AJ Tracey the word artist is much more applicable than MC. Spanning several genres his music library is adored by everyone from grime fans to hip hop heads to girls around the globe judging by the amount of girls who tried to make a mad dash for the backstage befor being caught by security.
AJ Tracey’s Motion date on his sold out Secure the Bag tour did not disappoint! With Big Zuu supporting, the crowd was gassed from start to finish. With a closing support set featuring PK, Zuu, Ets and Wax; I left with no doubt in my mind that MTM has some of the top shellers in the game. Zuu’s debut EP is considered one of the best releases of this year by us at UKGrime so to see him perform a selection of tracks from the project live only got us more excited for his second headline show pegged for January next year.
AJ’s main set drew some of the biggest mosh-pits I’ve seen in Bristol, performing a selection of tracks from his “Secure the Bag”, “Lil Tracey” and “Alex Moran” EPs it was an engaging performance for both newer and more original fans. Joined on stage by Dee and DJ General Courts the trio kept the crowd active throughout the show, with AJ taking breaks for Courts to spin some Skepta and then US chart toppers such as Lil Uzi Vert’s “XO Tour Lif3”. Now on his second full scale UK Tour, AJ Tracey comfortably commanded the stage and audience showing his growing experience in live performances.
