It’s been a long time coming but now our wishes have been granted as UK hip-hop legend Lowkey announces his full return to the game with his new single aptly titled “The Return Of Lowkey”. The track is a 7-minute long bar fest equipped with face slapping lyrics, reflective gems and an undying fire beneath it all. Lowkey sure stirs up the dragon’s nest as he tackles probably all the issues surrounding his time off the microphone. With the majority of his hiatus spent on studies and activism, Lowkey’s return is much needed.
The visual brings the defiant vibe of the song to the screens with additional visual testimonies from Akala, Charlie Sloth and Ghetts in support of his work. Lowkey takes the viewer through a walk in his side of town as he pricks the brain with his thought-provoking bars. “The Return Of Lowkey” serves as the perfect re-introduction of many sorts and it’s part of a monthly single release from the British-Iraqi hip hop artist leading up to his album launch. The album will serve as the sequel to his classic album ‘Soundtrack To The Struggle’
Speaking about the track he says:
“I am happy to be back making music again and am greatly looking forward to bringing this track on the road for the April tour. In a sense, this song was a collaborative effort between myself and the audience at a Manchester gig. The vocals heard in the chorus is a live recording taken from a sold-out gig we did at the Gorilla venue in 2016.”
Lowkey will also embark on the ‘The Return Of Lowkey’ Tour: Get the dates HERE
