Lowkey is a London-based, hip-hop artist, poet, political activist, and one of the most requested guest’s from the London Real audience. Born to an Iraqi mother and a British father, he began rapping at 12 years old and soon after, released mixtapes which gained critical acclaim for their politically charged lyrics and smooth flow.
He would go on to play Glastonbury, be featured on the BBC, and become well known for his political activism. He then took a 4 year hiatus, completely removing himself from music, in order to focus on his education. In 2016, Lowkey returned to the scene by dropping tracks addressing the European refugee crisis with the song titled ‘Ahmed’, followed with songs such as ‘Children of Diaspora’, ‘Death of Neoliberalism’, ‘Lords of War, ‘Ghosts of Grenfell’ after the the Grenfell Tower fire tragedy in June 2017, that killed 71 people right across the street from his home in West London.
Lowkey also returned to the music scene by doing ‘200 bars’ on SBTV, alongside the most anticipated ‘Fire In The Booth Part 2′ on ‘Charlie Sloth’s BBC 1Xtra radio show’.
