Buzzing Gambian-British rapper, Pa Salieu shares the music video for his new single 'Bang Out.'

The hardcore track, produced by Felix Joseph and AOD features a catchy hook and rapid-fire verses from the young artist. The trippy, multimedia video was directed by Midnight Club. The song premiered last night on BBC's 1xtra radio.


The Coventry-raised artist is part of a class of newcomers redefining the UK's rap scene. He released his breakout single "Frontline" at the top of the year and it's quickly amassed over two million views on YouTube.

"Pa Salieu is blending his West Midlands upbringing and Gambian heritage into a unique brand of rap that has seen him carve out space as an exciting new voice in British music," reads a press release.

In a recent interview with The Fader, the artist spoke about his upbringing in Gambia and how it drew him to explore music. "I grew up listening to my auntie in the car. The years in Gambia were the most important years [in my life], up until I was 8 or 9."
