‘Walter Mitty’, lifted from his current debut album ‘Summer with the Wolves’, is accompanied by a video which was shot and directed by longtime collaborator Peter Judge-Fernandez.
Filmed on an iPhone X, the video is a personal reflection of Kofi’s life growing up in London and explores social issues faced by the artist at the time of writing his album. The new track’s title comes from his favourite story, which he uses as a metaphor for his feeling of disassociation from the environment in which he was raised as a result of the current political climate.
King Kofi is one of the most diverse artists to emerge out of North London’s hip-hop scene. The release of 2016’s ‘Just A Dude In Need Of A Chance’ mixtape saw the 22 year old rapper gain a respectable online fan-base. He then followed up the project recently with the release of his debut studio effort ‘Summer With The Wolves’ which cemented the artist as one of the UK’s most conceptual storytellers.
The rapper’s early mentors include London producer and songwriter Semothy Jones (best known for his work with Plan B, Lily Allen and Professor Green) and Ben Anderson who’s worked with acclaimed UK music collective Rudimental. Other collaborators include East London producer Svmmo (The Square/ Elf Kid, Ghetts, Nike Air) and Urban Monk (Wiley, Professor Green).
