Potter Payper, the talented British rapper, has just dropped his latest single, ‘Corner Boy’ – the third release of the year and available now through 0207 Def Jam. Directed by Troy Roscoe, the video for the song showcases Potter‘s incredible storytelling ability as he effortlessly reflects on the experiences of individuals and communities. Shot in just two hours, the video is a perfect example of “less is more” and highlights Potter‘s meticulous attention to detail. ‘Corner Boy’ is a straight-talking reflection of Potter‘s upbringing, delivered with his usual unflinching style. With lyrics that are relatable and emotion-filled, Potter is a force to be reckoned with in the UK rap scene.
Potter’s rise to fame began with his legendary freestyles, which have amassed millions of views. He has worked tirelessly to fine-tune his craft, and his first mixtape, ‘Training Day,’ released in 2013, was the first installment of what has become one of the most iconic trilogies in UK rap history. His most recent mixtape, ‘Thanks For Waiting,’ paid tribute to his supporters during his hiatus and earned him his second Top 10 project.
Potter‘s dedication to his music has not gone unnoticed. His hit-track ‘Gangsteritus’ featured in the Netflix series ‘Top Boy’ and landed him his first Top 20 single, while his residency in collaboration with BBC Sounds saw him interview an array of guests, including Stormzy, Snoochie Shy, and the 0207 Def Jam Presidents. He has collaborated with Ed Sheeran, featured on Snoop Dogg’s ‘Snoop Dogg Presents’ LP, hosted an evening with New York Times bestselling author Robert Greene, and made his Glastonbury Festival debut – all testaments to his unique musical talent.
Potter‘s success did not come overnight; it is the result of years of hard work, highs, lows, and, in recent years, redemption. He has continuously been hailed as one of the best lyricists in the country, armed with one of the most important voices of his generation. With more music on the way, Potter Payper is undoubtedly an artist to watch this year.
