New Zealand's Church & AP merge multitudes of different rap forms on their infectious debut "Ready or Not".
At just 17 and 18, Church & AP are here to tell the world that whatever it throws at them, they are on guard.
"Ready or Not" infuses flavours that taste similar to the playful flow and tone of Eminem and Anderson .Paak combined, built on a trap-infused beat that could easily be a bonus track on Childish Gambino's Because the Internet record.
Moving through vocal manipulation and playful hooks, "Ready or Not" is a rich cocktail that merges strong undertones of hip hop heavyweights with their youthful charm, topped with their 'give me everything you've got' attitude.
The duo manage to find a niche with their wordplay, dishing out a mixture of American and British rap as they move between slang like "Bruv" and "Grip", which ultimately establish their unique sound.
Expanding on their debut single, Elijah Manu (Church), and Albert Purcell (AP) say "Ready or Not" is about "being ready for anything - not creating any problems but ready to sort it if it happens."
