F. Williams, aka Hardoe, is building a bit of a reputation for himself the UK Hip-Hop game. The South Londoner initially started out as a producer, but later discovered that he had a passion for performance and rapping. Since then he has released a couple of mixtapes – the first a collaboration with musical accomplice Simz, and the second his debut solo mixtape “Davinci Code”.
Now he’s back with a new track Bvlgari Vision, that we’re pleased to premiere here on Backseat Mafia. It opens with this pulsating synth line, the percussive lines continually trying to interrupt the smooth soulful vocal from Tayshon Tyler that runs through the track, giving it this modern RnB tilt. In contrast Hardoe’s vocal is deep, ominous even, as he fires in some fine rhymes, giving it this sense of inventive storytelling.
