Flying the flag high for South London, House of Pharaohs’ Sam Wise keeps his foot on the scene’s neck with a glistening offering, ‘First Little Rollie’.
Cultivating numerous anthems over the years, the musician has managed to accumulate a die-hard following that steps by his side with every stride, and with the likes of; his woozy Haze featuring SE’s soft-spoken poet Jesse James, the lively Lizzie and of course HOP’s Mixtape Madness holding that iconic ‘…aye D squared jumper’ line courtesy of Blaze YL all under his belt – you can see why he’s BEEN the talk of the town.
The House of Pharaohs front-runner only continues to keep the hype alive behind the name that holds copious amounts of weight within the heavily adored underground scene; bringing us a track that just oozes blasé confidence as the rapper casually coasts across a euphoric reversed melody courtesy of HERMXN and Leon Jordan cultivating the seamless soundscape. Plus shoutout Venna for that soulful sax sequence to draw the song to an end – levels.
Wise once again showcases his nonchalant mannerisms behind the mic, spitting knowledge on various topics from; keeping his energy far away from the fame chasers, bringing his brothers up with him and even sending a few backhanding compliments his own way; ‘if I’m keeping it real, I’ll probably get a mil before I grow a beard!’
Sam doesn’t just leave it there though; marrying the smooth audio with a light-hearted visual experience courtesy of Elliot Simpson; seeing the rapper lounging around on an estate with his HOP circle – as in literally lounging on a bright blue sofa, kind of lounging. The laid-back vibe is carried throughout; as Wise cuts through to his plug to pick up his ‘First Little Rollie’ with the smooth wordsmith Jesse James.
