A Fresh, Future-Retro Hip-Hop Anthem from East London’s Finest

East London’s own MAK is back, revitalizing the music scene with his latest single Please, showcasing his unique blend of hip-hop with a fresh, future-retro flair. This track is a laid-back yet engaging piece that marries smooth melodies with transparent storytelling, reflecting MAK’s personal outlooks and experiences.

The music video, directed by Sebastian Luke-Virgo, captivates with its vivid, color-coded visuals and MAK’s stylish, monochrome attire, aligning perfectly with the song’s rhythm without adhering to a traditional storyline. This release marks MAK’s first for 2024 and follows successful tracks like Fortress, Check, and 25, each demonstrating his growing influence in the music world.

Explaining the motivation for Please, MAK sees the single as a personal reintroduction, inspired by recent life changes and reflections on family, passions, and future aspirations:

“Please is a reintroduction of myself in a weird way. I’ve had a lot of experiences over the past year that I’ve drawn from to create this record. I’m sharing my views on life in recent times. I touch on various subjects such as family, hobbies, women, and ultimately what I see for myself in the near future.”

Growing up amidst East London’s rich musical tapestry, MAK naturally gravitated towards music, developing a unique voice within the grime culture and beyond. His journey from casual freestyling to serious songwriting reflects his commitment to pushing musical boundaries and conveying genuine stories and emotions.

In 2024, MAK is on the brink of evolving from a fan favorite to a dominant force in music, using his art to inspire joy, reflection, or change. With every release, he aims to build deeper bonds with his audience, sharing a path of collective experiences and significant discoveries.
