Tempa T is back with another high energy track – ‘What Are You On’ and visuals to match.
The Tempz we all know and love brings us his signature aggressive flows following his release of ‘What You Telling Me’ last month.
Premiered on GRM Daily, ‘What Are You On’ has a distinctive raw grime beat to go with it and will leave all the old school grime fans feeling nostalgic, going back to the ‘box on my head’ days!
The former ‘Slew Dem Crew’ member shot up into the grime scene with what is now known as an underground anthem – ‘Next Hype’. However, the last couple of years have seen the grime artist looking as if he is focusing more on exercise rather than music. The grime legend’s posts on Instagram regularly consist of morning runs and hardcore work outs in the gym.
The story behind it relates to Tempa T’s hernia operation a few years back which saw him possess a “health is wealth” attitude. Shortly after the operation, Tempz spent a year in Thailand learning Muay Thai. The Pro Gains ambassador told them: “I transformed my life. I returned a new man, I have since rejuvenated my life in all aspects, career, physique and future prospects.”
Musically though, Tempz wouldn’t be Tempz without his shouting, making us want to want to jump around and go nuts! – He has stayed consistent in his style of rapping and continues to excerpt a hyped-up vibe.
Towards the end of the track, we see the East Londoner finish off with a little ‘sing-song’ – very reminiscent of his bars from ‘Par’ back in 2009. He can be heard singing: “I’m alive man, dun know yeah I’m alive man”… “Man wanna violate me, I’ll sky man”, before finally tributing “R.I.P” to Esco.
