Sometimes described as Britain’s Run The Jewels, London’s Rebel ACA & French Monkey Wrench return to collaborate together on a new meaningful song titled “Never Give Up featuring iSTAND & Danny Sprang, and remixed by Lil’ Rossco.
Rebel ACA had previous success with his Billboard #1 Chilagon album that was with Spragga Benz. Following that experience, he met iStand, Benz’s best friend in the U.K., where they found they had a musical synergy that was too in sync to be ignored. They brought in close friends, Danny, and French, to collaborate with on their music.
Rebel ACA details “Never Give Up”:
“This was originally written in the Butterhut NW10 (London) over one afternoon and gave it to Lil’ Rossco to remix. Well he made an even better song. Except iStand now sounds like a Dalek. Never one to quibble over whose oranges are juiciest when the pips are down, we are proudly releasing his version instead.”
“Life isn’t easy and has a habit to feel like a queue of people that has lined up to punch you in the face. So don’t give up. Ever. We filmed this tongue in cheek video playing with the more minor comedy matters that test your patience. The home delivery driver finding your flat, the flat-pack furniture frustration, the endless apparent need to exercise – even with that meaningless bullshit – it takes all that you have – to keep going. This track continues our series of single releases and collaborations with Spragga Benz and Rodney P – this one switches up our artwork. Because frankly we’ve given up on that look and moving on to the next.”
