Rising UK rap star, AntsLive has just dropped his latest single, following up on viral hits such as “Number One Candidate” and “Ooh La La” with his new single, “Captain Ants.”

Since AntsLive’s recently-dropped mixtape, Just A Matter Of Time hit speakers across the globe, the London-based rhymer has gone on to garner a slew of well-deserved attention. Partnering his music with out-of-the-box music video concepts, AntsLive’s latest short movie is another stellar example of why he’s one of the most exciting rappers in the UK.

The visuals align with the track name of “Captain Ants,” with the rhymer captured performing all over an airport before hitting the skies on top of an (actual) plane. Produced by Cadenza, the single samples Paulette’s “Bella Et Ses Balladins,” with a collection of silky-smooth guitar and brass elements layering a slew of heavy 808s.

Meanwhile, the impressive visuals and production are complemented just as much by AntsLive’s delivery. His usual sharp and witty wordplay is partnered with clarity, intelligence, and an overall confidence that is sure to take the rapper to the very top soon.

You can check out the visuals for “Captain Ants” above and you can add the single to your playlists below.
