Rising east London rapper Solid 806 has unleashed his debut album, Versatile. The mysterious independent rapper has kept his identity under wraps so far but his music has taken centre stage and begun to rack up an impressive number of streams. The album’s lead single, Married To The Game, has almost half a million streams on YouTube. When listening to the track, the reason for its appeal is evident on the first listen, with the track showcasing Solid 806’s smooth cadence and impressive songwriting abilities – as heard on the track’s hugely catchy chorus.

All 12 tracks on the album are equally notable and infused with infectious beats, addictive melodies and Solid 806’s undeniable lyrical ability and ear for memorable hooks. It’s clear this fast-rising talent is an artist to watch out for with an exciting future ahead. Speaking further on the album’s release, Solid 806 says, “This project is not just a statement to prove that I am versatile. I like to give myself challenges and come out of my comfort zone when making music. I believe I will not progress as a musician choosing the easy options and remaking the same thing constantly.

“When I chose to take music seriously, I told myself that I will make music the way I want. There are no rules in this game, and I won’t stand out as an artist doing the same thing as everybody else. Why should I be the same when I could be different by being me?” Versatile is available to buy/stream now on all platforms.
