Nigz TG turns a new page on “Smash Hit”

The British rapper flips a creepy horror movie score on his new single.

February 19, 2020

Nigz TG's "Smash Hit" is a burst of pure energy. The London-based MC goes in hard on an eerie beat, which samples music from the 1984 child murderer movie Children of the Corn, asserting himself as a savage with his eyes locked firmly on securing the bag. The "Smash Hit" video, premiering above, adds to the horrorcore undertones with a decapitated pigs head and Nigz's buzzing intensity making it looks like he's about to burst out of the screen at any moment.

Speaking about the track via email, Nigz said: "'Smash Hit' is about me breaking free from the confinement of social media circles. It’s the beginning of me no longer looking for acceptance from those people and instead focusing on building stronger foundations within my community of skateboarders. I asked Omari to sample Children Of The Corn for the beat because I was scared of it as a kid, so in that way the song represents me overcoming my fears.”

"Smash Hit" is available to stream and download now via Acrylic Records.
