One of the most powerful voices in hiphop returns.
I think the whole world was shocked, excited, happy and everything in between. When the news that Lowkey was returning to hiphop started to circulate. A man who had retired one of the strongest voices in hiphop, makes a triumphant return.
A very raw and hard hitting subject matter for Lowkey to vocalise on, but a subject that to some extent has been over looked in hiphop. Immigration and children who are dying every single day. Trying to escape war and extreme politics in their countries. Never was there a better time for a track that holds so much weight and lyrical substance. Lowkey is a voice that has really been missed in hiphop over the past few years. Blasting back on the scene with a track and video that is pure rawness and realness. Complimented by an understated vocal hook from Mai Khalil, that gives the track just the right balance of empathy.
I think the whole hiphop world, going by the reaction across social media, is over the moon that Lowkey is back. Now for how long, only time will tell! He does have a UK tour lined up so he isn’t going anywhere just yet. Lowkey welcome back to the game sir, one things for certain, you have been missed.
