An up and coming rapper is hoping to hit the big time with his latest video that has so far attracted more than 5,000 views on YouTube.

Shaun Bales, 27, of Durham Avenue, Gidea Park – who goes by the name Absonetti – released his latest track All Of The Time two weeks ago.

Riding on its success, the singer and rapper has now released a free mixtape entitled The A Wave and hopes to land himself a record deal.

“I am currently unsigned and putting my music on all the UK and world-wide platforms to build my buzz and strengthen my discography,” he said.

“My ambitions are to go on tour and we are putting [that] together a mini tour of Essex.”

Shaun’s mixtape features Britain’s Got Talent girl band semi-finalists Miss Treat Vibe, and is available for download on hoodtapes.co.uk.

He will be shooting the video for the second track of his mixtape in September.
