BREAKING from convention has long allowed for emerging artists to supersede their peers on the way to wider acclaim and it’s a concept that’s clearly hardwired into the mindset of Scholesy.
Hailing from Dundee, the artist lesser known as Callum Rennet may not match the preordained aesthetics that would make him a viable candidate for a hot prospect amid Scotland’s budding hip-hop community but the verificaiton is all there in auditory form. Set to be released ahead of a whirlwind jaunt around Scotland next week, TTV are happy to provide you with the first look at his debut single ‘Nights.’
A hybrid of the once irrepressible cloud rap sound that was made famous by A$AP Rocky and Clams Casino alongside the trap-infused swagger of burgeoning superstars such as Lil Uzi Vert and Rich The Kid, Scholesy’s first offering portrays him as a conflicted soul that’s trying to reconcile with the many opposing facets of his life. An introspective look at both hope and despair in equal measure, ‘Nights’ simultaneously demonstrates his prodigious ear for gripping production but his candid lyricism that holds a mirror up to the listener and implores them to heed its sentiments and take a look at themselves.
