Rat Boy’s back with ‘Get Over It’, the titular track from his forthcoming EP

God, Rat Boy’s good, isn’t he?

Writers used to call Jamie T a one-man-Arctic-Monkey. Rat Boy, then, must be a one-man-Jamie-T-Mike-Skinner-Ian-Drury-And-Joe-Strummer-At-A-British-Hip-Hop-Picnic. Or something like that.

Anyway, I digress. Rat Boy’s back with Get Over It, the titular track from his forthcoming EP.

It’s everything you’d expect or want from the Essex-born artist. Rat Boy’s at his sharpest and observational best, embracing elements of reggae and ska alongside his patented scattered sound. ‘I’m on a mission trying to get a bit of recognition’ he swaggers in the track’s opening verse, before taking swipe at a number of adversaries, including ex-teachers and an imaginationless Britain. With his tongue firmly in his cheek, the young man has a spring in his step, and rightly so – 2016 has already been a phenomenal year for Rat Boy, and that doesn’t look like changing any time soon.

Get Over It is rhythmic, confrontational and completely of the moment. With a whole host of innovative, interactive features accompanying the forthcoming EP (including storyboards, fictional characters and a streetwear empire), Rat Boy is an artist who pushes all manner of boundaries and the very notions of creative output.

Get Over It is brilliant, toe-tapping social commentary. Behold, the year of the Rat.
