Blackway’s new EP features a revamped, remastered version of the title track (Known as the NFL’s official song of the season) and a new cut “Badman” on the EP. Heavyweight is Blackway at his best – full of swagger, humor, rapid delivery, witty wordplay lyricism, and confidence.
“I’m mainly excited for fans to get that adrenaline rush that we felt making this record! I love making people feel unstoppable, I think this EP does that.” – Blackway
“We were instantly fans of Blackway. The moment ‘What’s Up Danger’ dropped on ‘Into The Spiderverse,’ the world woke up to his lyrical talent and hook writing. Combining his on-the-mic prowess with Koko’s minimal yet punchy production felt like an exciting combination and so, when the two got in the studio we were already hoping for greatness. What they delivered in the ‘Heavyweight’ EP was even better,”
said Robin Housman of Hive Music/Position Music.
