Lowkey has announced his long awaited return with news that will be music to the ears of every hip hop fan in the land. After a hiatus which saw the British-Iraqi hip hop artist take time off to focus on studies and activism, he blasts back into view with brand new music for 2019 – announcing a new album and first single from it.
Lowkey has worked with Immortal Technique, Wretch 32, Akala, Dead Prez and The Outlawz. He is part of the super group Mongrel alongside members of the Arctic Monkeys, Babyshambles and Reverend and the Makers. The band released their album Better than Heavy in tandem with the Independent newspaper.
His critically acclaimed music has received millions of streams on Spotify, sold over 25k albums digitally and garnered over 45 million YouTube views. His independently released album Soundtrack to the Struggle (2011) charted #6 in the UK RnB chart, #9 in the UK Indie chart, #14 in the UK Download chart and #57 in the UK Albums chart. He was included in MTV Base Best of the Best UK MCs two years in a row. Charting at #10 in 2010 and #7 in 2011.
His community work around the Grenfell fire led to his recent appointment as director of performing arts for the Kids on The Green charity, assisting rehabilitation of children in the area. Lowkey was commissioned by Theatre Royal, Bath to write a Hip Hop version of Shakespeare’s Macbeth, which was performed there and was also performed as part of the Edinburgh Festival.
