The track was first made available late last year on JME’s album ‘Grime MC’. However, ‘Nang’ only premiered on streaming services yesterday (May 11), as JME chose not to release the album on online platforms.
Watch the clip for ‘Nang’ below:
Real life brothers JME and Skepta have teamed up on several tracks prior to the release of ‘Nang’. The brothers previously performed as members of Meridian Crew and Boy Better Know, two influential grime collectives established in North London.
As solo artists, the brothers appeared on Wiley’s track ‘Can You Hear Me? (Ayayaya)’ in 2012, alongside Ms D.
Skepta also appeared on ‘Hospital’, a track from JME’s second album, ‘Blam!’. ‘Hospital’ also features Shorty, Frisco and Jammer.
In 2014, JME featured on Skepta’s track ‘That’s Not Me’, which appeared on the latter’s record ‘Konnichiwa’. ‘That’s Not Me’ won the MOBO award for Best Video on its release in 2014.
Since the beginning of the year, JME has been periodically uploading tracks from ‘Grime MC’ to streaming platforms. ‘Nang’ joins ‘Issmad’, ’96 of My Life’, ‘You Watch Me’ and more in being uploaded. There is no word yet on whether JME plans to make the entire album available on streaming platforms.
