Z. Lewis has always shown flickers of brilliance, with his remix of Kendrick Lamar’s Levitate making waves late last year, along with his killer feature on Tyrøne‘s Tickin’ that was one of our very favourite verses of 2016. However, at last, we have a (long awaited) debut single from the Brisbane rapper.
Although this single is his debut track under the name Z. Lewis, he’s (already) quite clearly one of the countries most impressive lyricists, and Don’t Speak 2 Me displays exactly that. The grime-inspired track has Lewis spitting rapidly and charismatically over the gritty production, with his idiosyncratic flows and deadly punchlines hitting everyone standing in his way.
Z. Lewis is one of the most promising young artists to come out of a stacked Brisbane Hip-Hop scene, and we’re looking forward to what follows from this impressive debut single.
