Sox, Vital & T8PES COLLAB


Sox, Vital and T8PES bring their lyrical A-game to their grime single ‘Wake Up’. A tune designed to give everybody who is sacrificing at the moment a spring in their step.

‘Wake Up’ is a timely reminder that belief, dedication, tenacity, purpose and passion will always prevail, highlighting that giving up is never an option and tomorrow is another opportunity to give everything.

Sox needs no introductions. Signed by Skepta for Boy Better Know, Sox’s legendary clashes on Lord of the Mics left an imprint on the minds of a generation of grime fans helping him clock up tens of millions of YouTube views in the last decade and making him a household name among the urban music fraternity.

Vital is Wolverhampton’s very own Force of Nature; a whirlwind of positivity and tornado of enthusiasm. A regular on Radio 1 & 1xtra, he even clinched his own BBC local radio show last year. Vital’s live credentials include performing on huge stages and hosting massive events. Rated by other artsits as one of the hardest working talents in the industry his forthcoming 2020 tour shows he doesn’t even want to know how to rest on his laurels.

T8PES (pronounced TAPES) is Birmingham rapper Jimmy Davis’ latest incarnation. A festival veteran and BBC 6 Music championed artist, his 13 year career includes touring all over Europe and even being the emcee who Ed Sheeran cites as a major influence on his record breaking career after the pair met when Ed was just 15.
This season T8PES has brought his lyrical dexterity to the Premiership providing a weekly round up which is now a must watch for players and fans alike.

He said: “I’m so proud to be part of ‘Wake Up’ alongside Sox and Vital. It feels like I’m part of a three-pronged Premier League attack worthy of rivalling Salah, Firmino and Mane.”
