Avelino has announced a new project called ‘Ego Kills’ and shared the latest track to be taken from it, called ‘100k’.

‘Ego Kills’ will mark the MC’s first non-single release since his 2017 mixtape ‘No Bullshit’, which was his fourth tape overall.

“Announcing my tape is a beautiful feeling because I remember when it was just a dream,” said Avelino of today’s (July 2) news. “I feel lucky to be this phenomenal and have the opportunity to showcase it.”

“It’s sounding like The Spokesman, AKA The Rapper, AKA Avelino is just a vessel for God – for great things,” he said on the red carpet of the NME Awards 2020, where he presented Little Simz with the award for Best British Album. “I’m a young guy from an inner-city lifestyle, working-class, with parents working seven jobs between two people. We’re just expressing ourselves in a major way.”
