After breaking onto the scene by rapping over loops of Smiths songs, crossover MC London has tried to go big via fashion as much as music. Kanye West serves as executive producer on his latest record, Vibes, and Karl Lagerfeld shot the album cover. Slathered in synths, the album settles comfortably into chart chillwave and '80s gloss nostalgia, blending the sounds of Blood Orange, Kid Cudi and Santigold. The Brit's pop melange has never quite matched his style, but sometimes cool is enough.
