Abby Power is a London hip hop artist, at only twenty years old she is producing music reminiscent of the iconic 90s hip hop golden era combined with her own unique modern edge. “Oh Well” featuring underground hip hop sensation Genesis Elijah is the follow up free download single to her well received debut “Transitions” EP released in April 2014.The self written single not only demonstrates Abby's rapping skills but also her stand out singing vocal. The overall sound creates a mellow undertone to her music, which shows off her ability to mix up old school sounds with a new school enthusiasm.
Abbys stepping stone into the hip hop world came from a love of poetry which was inspired by the “Def Poetry” TV series hosted by Mos Def between 2002 - 2007. Instead of doing school work throughout her teenage years Abby began scribbling poems at the back of class challenging social inequality and world injustice. Fast forward a few years later and Abby found herself collaborating with DefJam poet legend Shihan on “Wake Up Call” taken from her debut Transitions EP.
The music video plays an important role in conveying strong, powerful and shocking messages about Abby Powers music. “Oh Well’ which is a video exclusive with Link Up TV is a gritty take on the reality of life struggles. Abby plays her conscious and from a distance she watches herself self destruct, that is until she finds hope and direction from her saviour Genesis. This is a story of the evils of temptation and how if we can overcome it lead a better and more purposeful life through recognizing our full potential.
Abbys great potential has resulted in her signing to urban record label Vintage State Music, with airplay on BBC1xtra and support from Flavour Magazine and Grime Daily. She has collaborated not only with Shihan but also other up and coming hip-hop artists Tabancle, J.Lynch, Rene Soul and Crucial. By infusing her unique and charismatic style into golden era hip-hop sounds the future is very bright for this hip hop disciple...
“Abby Power is an artist who can spit positive energy over an addictive beat. We need more hip hop like this “ – Grime Daily
