Tickets & Tour Information For Kofi Stone
Lay back against the jazzy hip hop of Kofi Stone
Kofi Stone is a rap artist who is above all a wordsmith. His carefully crafted lyrics sketch a world of working-class domestic struggles, delivered in an authentic voice from the Birmingham streets. He uses the laidback rap delivery style of the West Coast scene, employing a similar approach to someone like LL Cool J, with mellow raps that belie their hard-hitting lyrical content. Imagine classic 90s hip hop with instrumentation sampled from the golden age of jazz. Frankly, it sounds like a delicious prospect, so don't miss out – you can buy or sell Kofi Stone tickets on StubHub right now.
Old school hip hop beats with samples from classic jazz tracks
Kofi Stone isn't afraid to tackle the pressing issues of the day that affect his community. He examines the breakdown of family structures and also looks at the impact of rap culture on these. He's clearly very aware of his responsibility as a rap role model, and is intent on using his art form for the greater good. His love of rap goes back to his pre-teen years when he came across the "Illmatic" album by US rapper Nas, himself the son of a jazz musician, which is doubtless where Stone's idea of mixing jazz with hip hop is rooted. He made his biggest splash in his early days with an intimate rap track "Talk About Us", which featured guest vocals from Grantham-born dance singer Ady Suleiman. Another perfect example of his stereotype-busting lyrics about domestic relationships is his 2010 release, "It's Ok To Cry", a sensitive, vocally driven studio collaboration with Loyle Carner. It's smooth stuff from one of the most intelligent rappers on the UK scene, and you can explore it for yourself with Kofi Stone tickets.
Tapping into rap and hip hop's original roots
Kofi Stone has worked with a number of well-respected, cutting-edge British hip hop producers, such as Joe Corfield, Pitch 92 and Saul The Same. His raps aren't all about sensitive relationship commentary either: he takes on some close-to-the-bone topics like divorce and abusive step-parents. This is rap that tells it like it is, and in that sense it harks back to rap's original roots and to authentic hip hop artists like Lupe Fiasco. He's gained a dedicated following among his fellow Brummies, with other local rap artists like DJ Semtex and Tiffany Calver giving him a lot of support on his way up. In 2019 he had a big year, headlining his own London shows, which were sell-out affairs, and winning slots on the BBC Introducing bills at both the Leeds and Reading Festivals.
