Hip Hop and Grime Rapper
We are a booking agent for Slowthai and can arrange for Slowthai to perform at your event. Slowthai is an English hip-hop and grime rapper whose debut album ‘Nothing Great About Britain’ was nominated for the Mercury Prize. In 2019, Slowthai held up a fake severed head of Boris Johnson when performing at the Mercury Prize Ceremony. Slowthai also was listed on BBC’s Sound of 2019 poll.
Born and raised in Northampton, Slowthai cultivated a territorial pride for his roots which has ultimately influenced a variety of his lyrics. He grew up on a council estate known as ‘The Bush’ and attended Northampton Academy, then Northampton College where he studied Music Technology. As he built on his love of music, Slowthai started freestyling in his early teens and began writing his own music, seeking to add a complexity and depth to his lyrics and create message that will resonate with his listeners. As he continued to develop his distinctive sound, he received more recognition and after the release of his project ‘slowitdownn’ Slowthai’s career started to gain momentum, with the budding rapper getting hundreds of thousands of plays on Soundcloud.
