Lowkey – Ghosts of Grenfell ft. Mai Khalil

“Did they die or us?”

With the tragic events that took place, the Grenfell tower in a blaze, innocents families trapped, helpless, the powers that be have yet to really take blame or accept any fault, let alone help or show remorse. Understandably that the inquest continues, and though policies and procedures are in effect, it’s still something that often has us questioning humanity. A sad day as public attempted to help, but none the less, there have been reports of coverups and false information being put out through the media, with the death toll considered far greater than the numbers initially released.

Rapper and activist, Lowkey is no stranger to speaking up, especially using his ability and platform to raise awareness and help make a difference, happened to live opposite, and not only witnessed, but lost acquaintances to the horrific incident. While he continues to assist in putting the pressure and bringing some form of justice, he pours his soul out with this lyrical tribute..

In no ways attempting to capitalise or profit from the situation, the heartfelt song’s visuals do not feature him, but rather the community emphasising the emphatic words. One of the positives (if we can even see it as such) was seeing the community of various ethnicities and religions bonding together, and the visuals here help portray that. Though it contains a verse and a chorus over instrumentation, this really is another step in raising awareness and demanding justice, for the souls lost. With the gripping ending as you hear the community call for the whereabouts of the people, including children who have had their futures snatched away, for what?!

It is a statement of a record, and highlights the questions that need to be answered. Endless respect for Lowkey, blessings and prayers for the fallen, featuring the angelic vocals of Mai Khalil, the track really captures the every essence of what has been endured by the community and the pain of the friends and families, whilst serving as an honourable mention for the true selfless heroes.

“The blood is on your hands, there’ll be ashes on your grave, like a phoenix we will rise”

Lowkey – Something Wonderful

A man who uses his talents for the good, somebody who wants more from life than money and fame, somebody who wants to make a change, that somebody is UK’s own, Lowkey, one of the most gifted artists with his mind in the right place, here is his new single, the captivating, Something Wonderful:

Something Wonderful is quitely simply a beautiful song, it speaks for itself in volumes, it is an honest record (something you can always expect from Lowkey), it is a positive record and most of all it has a meaning, his ever-growing fanbase will love this as will new listeners. An ode to the female, Lowkey has come into more prominence recently and has not stopped to enjoy the accomplishments but rather work harder in order to acheive his goal, as a person he is humble and honest, I can only support and offer praise for such a person, especially when the music being created is so powerful and even comforting.

Having already topped the Amazon download charts, with Long Live Palestine, surpassing the likes of Jay-Z, Eminem and the Black Eyed Peas in doing so, he has shown that you can still have a career and a following despite a lack of help from the media and corporates.

Continue to support the rightous rapper, as he continues to deliver quality and honest music.

Lowkey & Faith SFX – Alphabetical Assasin

A concept originally heard by the self proclaimed ‘Saviour of Rap’ Papoose with Alphabetical Slaughter, UK emcee Lowkey offers his version.

With beatbox extrodinaire Faith SFX providing the platform, Lowkey stands up and delivers a lyrical onslaught as he runs through the alphabet. I like this, it is a good effort to say the least, Faith SFX’s talents are already known, one of the best if not the best at what he does, his name is known throughout the scene, his single Passion Fruit displayed his range of ability more, Lowkey is more respected underground and so he is not as widely known, however those that do know, are in no doubt of his ability and so together they offer a force to be reckoned with.

Here is the original Papoose – Alphabetical Slaughter:
