On Sunday, June 24, reggae sensation Gyptian performed to thousands of screaming fans at BBC Radio 1’s Hackney Weekend held in East London. Europe’s largest free music festival drew in an estimated crowd of 100,000 fans and featured acts including Jay-Z, Kanye West, MIA, Lana Del Rey, Jack White, Rihanna and NAS. Nigerian rapper Ice Prince also joined Gyptian on stage to perform his remix of “Magician.”
Two days prior to his performance, Gyptian debuted his latest single “Overtime,” off the juggling-riddim by the same name – produced by Justus. “Overtime” is exclusively available on this year’s 20th Anniversary Edition of Reggae Gold (out tomorrow June 26) and one of the four newly commissioned songs off the compilation.
For me, this is Gyptian’s best release since his mega-hit “Hold You”. Take a listen and let me know your thoughts:
