Lowkey is one of the UK’s most potent and electrifying rappers. A towering figure of the scene who renews the old tradition of conscious hip-hop activism for the war on terror generation. Fusing politically charged lyrics and deft dissection of topics such as race, war, global poverty and politics with anthemic choruses and unrelentingly energetic performance, Lowkey commands a keen and growing legion of followers.
Lowkey is known for his Palestine solidarity activism and anti-war lyrics and has recorded with underground hip-hop legends such as Canibus, Dead Prez, Immortal Technique and Akala, performing to crowds everywhere from Glastonbury and Trafalgar Square to Germany and Amsterdam. Since 2022, Lowkey has been the of the Watchdog Podcast of Mintpress News, interviewing anti-imperialist writers, speakers and organizers on a wide range of vital topics.
