Today Novelist has released a brand new track, Endz, along with a video that he directed and edited himself.

"I come from the endz, My mandem grew up in the ends, All day I'm in the ends, Waste mandem can't come to the ends," the chorus repeats over a punching beat, phone ringing samples and electronic chords. There's an interlude where Nov flips a skateboard around over his feet and chats to his pal, footage of his friends just hanging out, and shout outs to South London locations Brockley and Lewisham.

The video is overlaid with, the instruction to "Text Novelist to +44 7860 025 707 for info," but you better hope it's not the mobile he mentions on the track: "I've got a broken phone, it's whack and the replies are slow." Check out the latest from the 18-year-old dubbed "the future of grime" in the video above.
