Unless you’ve been under a rock, you’ll no doubt know about Yxng Bane‘s new mixtape HBK which dropped last Friday and has been playing on our office stereo ever since.

The impressive 14 track effort proves Bane‘s ability to walk a difficult line, balancing credible street bangers with pop-leaning tracks destined to dominate the mainstream.

Along with the tape, he also demonstrated another layer of his artistry, with an accompanying short film ‘HBK: The Prequel’ which followed five young men from Canning Town and was shot over two days, starring Yxng Bane, Samuel Kyi, Senesie “Essk Songz” Koroma, Gerome Miller, Malachi Latchman and Emma Cargill.

While the video was being shot, photographers Danika Magdelena and Amber Felix were on hand to document the process, taking us behind the scenes for this exclusive photo gallery.

Scroll down to see how the shoot went down, and head here to listen to HBK and watch ‘HBK: The Prequel’.

Yxng Bane plays Kentish Town Forum on November 16th.
