Slowthai

Rapper Slowthai delivers raw, emotionally direct lyrics that unmask the struggles and concerns of British youth. His boisterous speech and hyperactive performance are equally influenced by grime and punk rock, while his tough and fearless lyrics brim with compassion and criticism of today's society. A native of Northampton, Tryon Frampton earned the nickname Slowthai due to his slow, slurred speech. The British rapper grew up listening to various styles of music from indie to garage and jungle until, while still in his teens, he discovered his passion for freestyle rap. The theme “Jiggle” (2016) caused some buzz around its name, but it was with the single “T N Biscuits” and the debut of the EP RUNT (2018) that it managed to conquer the specialized press. In May 2019, Nothing Great About Britain appeared, an open letter to the current state of the British economy and society. Covered with irony and humor it makes us reflect on the situation in England in the Brexit era and particularly on all the problems faced from poverty and drug addiction to the wage gap. For the first disc, Slowthai also had the collaboration of Skepta and Mura Masa.
