EDITORS’ NOTES

Ed Sheeran recruits the cream of UK MCs for this self-released EP. He creates brooding, celestial dubstep for P Money’s gripping near-death experience on “Family”, while JME’s measured flow tessellates perfectly with popping, acoustic rhythms on “Radio”. The center-piece is “Little Lady”, a cousin of future hit “The A Team”. It shares the latter’s aching hook but, in the hands of Hackney rapper Mikill Pane, its tale of prostitution is bolder, tenser and comes with a heart-battering twist.
