The multi-talented, King Kofi is releasing the follow up to the recent and highly acclaimed ‘Amy Told Me’ single and is exclusive via Soundcloud now. Listen here
Recorded over the last month, ‘Gone Fishin’ was produced by Earbuds (https://www.instagram.com/earbudsldn/) who are best known for their work with the likes of Nike London, Puma, Elf Kid & The Square, Jammer BBK and Ghetts. The track is the first hint of what to expect from King Kofi’s eagerly awaited debut album, which is set for release later this year.
Although just twenty-one years of age, Kofi can at times pack a lifetime of pain and anguish into his lyrics and gives the listener a direct insight into what it means to be a young adolescent living in the UK right now. His influences cover a wide range of genres; it wouldn’t be uncommon when glazing over his discography to come across sounds that stem from electronica, indie music and UK grime. Yet, the London born rapper remains grounded in the aesthetic of hip-hop somehow keeping his musical tastes apparent, but flowing together nicely.
Mentored by the producer/songwriter Semothy Jones who has worked with Wretch-32, Professor Green, Lady Sovereign, Little Boots and Boy Better Know, Kofi has been eager to share his latest work to a steadily growing fan-base which admire the rapper for being somewhat open and relatable when it comes to his songwriting.
