“I NEVER REALLY SAW A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MUSIC AND ART, THE TRANSITION FELT REALL NATURAL.”
Hackney native Kojey Radical is a forward thinking, multi-faceted creative and musician, who is quickly establishing himself as being one of the prophets of our generation.
Starting out as a spoken word poet, the 24-year-old artists’ deeply rooted love of music inspired him to branch out into turning his poetry into music, saying that his “concern wasn’t to be the biggest star but rather to be one of the most respected contributors.”
Kojey has released two bodies of work to date: DEAR DAISY : OPIUM and the critically acclaimed 23 WINTERS, which was released just under a year ago. The 23 Winters EP is one which catapulted Kojey into the limelight – a brutally honest, personal account of the artists’ relationship between himself and his father. His poignant, introspective messaging is set against dark, dystopian soundscapes, over which he lays verses touching on everything from the African diaspora, youth incarceration, religion, equality, and a myriad of other heavy subjects, as his father narrates.
