Listen to Headie One's powerful lyrics
Most often associated with drill, Headie One can also be described as a grime artist and has dabbled in rap, trap, R&B and bashment. The very scene in which he is involved makes him something of a controversial artist - it has been claimed that some drill music has incited increased violence and gang membership on London's streets - but there is a disarming honesty to his lyrics that suggests he wants to use his music in a positive way. After a couple of spells in prison, Headie One began speaking out about the life that he knows, refusing to filter what he shares with his audience and thus building up a legion of loyal fans who really hear him. Headie One lyrics can be tough or thoughtful, high-spirited or hopeless, demonstrating an impressive versatility in an artist who is still just starting to show what he can do. As he grows in popularity and becomes an ever-stronger voice in the UK urban music scene, tickets for Headie One are becoming even more sought after than they were before.
Catch the inimitable Headie One in concert
In his trademark tracksuit, Headie One might look like any other young man you'd encounter on the street - until he opens his mouth. Softly spoken and deep-voiced, he speaks of his experiences in prison, football, drugs, violence and the everyday mundanities of life in Tottenham. A Headie One concert is a powerful experience, with fans who understand what he is saying and are enraptured by his incredible flow and the unique ad lib ('shh, shh') that punctuates so many of his lyrics. A unique voice in confused times, Headie One has done much to further the UK's drill and grime scenes and has collaborated with artists including RV, Yungen, Not3s and D Block Europe. Some mixtapes also show movement in the afrobeats and US hip hop directions, adding yet more strings to his bow - yet whatever genre you want to label him with, you'll always find the strong, emotionally demanding Headie One lyrics that have brought this artist so much well-deserved attention.
