Lowkey Album Launch Party

I've never been a particularly big fan of 'political rap' as it were, mainly due to the fact that in my opinion most of it just isn't executed very well. There are a number of exceptions of course, Public Enemy being the most obvious, but a lot of it just doesn't sit well with me. One main exception is Lowkey. Quite simply the cream of the crop regarding MCs from this country (and very possibly across the world) who focus mainly on political commentary, the first time I ever saw him live was at a Deal Real instore way back in the day, and his live show was that captivating that it was second nature to check his music.

Here follows some footage from the launch party for his 'Soundtrack To The Struggle' LP, which is available right now, so go cop that. The launch party itself looks crazy and I have heard from a few attendees that it was an absolute smash of a night. Also bear in mind that all of this has been achieved with no label backing and its all the more impressive. I really wanted to be there but left it too late and all the tickets had sold out. Random Axe = not sold out, Lowkey = sold out. Speaks volumes innit.
