Earlier this month, we stumbled upon ‘Rebel’, the debut solo single from underground legend and Iron Bridge founder, Verbs. A stellar built upon waves of ska-infused beats and intricate wordplay, it was a perfect illustration of Verbs technique, and as it spread around across Spotify, it soon grew to gain over 12,000 streams, along with a dedicated audience that couldn’t get enough of his heavy, conscious style. Now, Verbs is back in the spotlight, and he’s brought with him a seminal new single that will take him from cult status to global phenom.
Titled ‘Cancel Culture’, the new track sees the Essex emcee speaking his truth and making an indelible mark on the world, speaking out with a thought-provoking and unapologetically dark line that addresses the rising cancel culture in society.
Armed with a cinematic backdrop and plenty of candid moments, ‘Cancel Culture’ is arguably Verbs most passionate performance to date, and as he carves into society with clever, nuanced lyrics and razor-sharp wit. A powerful and undeniably dynamic song that takes aim at modern internet culture, mainstream media and all those who look to spread division through their actions, ‘Cancel Culture’ is a perfect blend of rising beats, shifting scratches, and plenty of defiant energy.
Alongside the new single, Verbs has also revealed a fittingly trippy video which you can see below. Filled with dark, leaning on creepy visuals and a unique aesthetic perfectly reflect the off-kilter style of the song, it’s another strong release from one of independent rap’s most impressive talents.
With over 23,000 views already, the power of ‘Cancel Culture’ is easily apparent, and with the release of Verb’s forthcoming album creeping ever closer, there’s never been a better time to get to know Verbs of Iron Bridge.
