East Anglian rapper Booda French (a.k.a. Don’t Flop battle rapper Truth) has recently released this video to accompany the audio for his track ’61 Grace’, off his upcoming E.P. ‘Ventolin’. Set on his home turf of Ipswich, the video follows Mr French round as he raps (and sings) about his rainy hometown.
