Some pop sparkle has helped Patrick Okogwu score multiple number one singles but Junk Food returns him to the danker sounds of the UK underground. “We Don’t Play No Games” encapsulates a mixtape where the the playful triumphalism within the rhymes illuminate beats built from grime’s spartan clang-and-bleep and trap’s hypnotic churn. Okogwu pairs up with Britain’s sharpest MCs–including Giggs (“Look at Me”) and Stormzy and JME (“Been the Man”)–but his wit and rich flow are never overshadowed.
