All Hail His Majesty: King Kofi to Release New Single on 12th of May

Processed with VSCO with g3 preset

Hot on the heels of his gig at Camden Assembly on 7th May, SEEN favourite King Kofi releases ‘Gone Fishin’, the follow up to the recent ‘Amy Told Me’. The new single is released exclusively via Soundcloud.

Recorded over the last month, the new track was produced by Earbuds 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 he’s only 21 years old, 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 refreshingly open and relatable when it comes to his songwriting.

The White Asparagus: SEEN Reviews

How fortunate are the residents of Islington? Just a step away from the bustle of the Caledonian Road is the leafy idyll of Hemingford Road and the N1 Cuckoo Gastro-hub. Hard to believe that this little slice of the country resides at the heart of the big bad city. This feeling was heightened by the closed-off road and the children happily playing ball in the street.
