Ferocious, scathing, darkly humorous lyrics. Harsh, energetic, biting beats. Brash, chaotic stage performances. Is this one of the most exciting rappers to come out of the UK grime scene? Buy or sell your Slowthai tickets via StubHub now and decide for yourself!
The small English town of Northampton will always be home for Tyron Frampton, A.K.A Slowthai, a stage name born from childhood nickname "Slow Ty", which came about from the rapper's tendency to drift off into his own world. Although, listening to his lyrics, it's easy to see that this is one switched-on artist, with complex, dense rhymes and a charismatic darkness to his presence that makes him evermore enticing to his growing audience. Starting out freestyling with friends on the streets of Lings, a council estate in the east of Northampton, Slowthai drew influence from the heavy hitters of grime: Devlin, Wiley and Skepta to name but a few. Later moving on to make his own music, Slowthai broke out with his first single "T N Biscuits", which solidified him as one of the most enigmatic and invigorating new rappers in the UK. This artist is surely one not to be missed. Make sure you catch him while you can and buy or sell your Slowthai tickets via StubHub now!
A show to remember
With stage performances consisting of diving into the crowd in his boxer shorts and spending most of the show screaming lyrics amongst them, watching Slowthai is reminiscent of watching a punk band. For grime, a somewhat overpopulated genre, to keep evolving, artists like Slowthai, along with others such as Prince MINI, Farai and 808INK, need to keep pushing boundaries and maintain original thought to send their message to the youth that follow them. Slowthai hails from a small town with little opportunity, over 60 miles from London, yet he still spends most of his time there, remaining grounded. He recalls meeting Alan Moore, widely regarded as the greatest comic writer of all time and coincidentally also from Northampton, who gave him the belief as a teen that you can achieve your dreams no matter where you come from. This belief and passion bursts out in one big wave of intensity at a Slowthai concert and washes over the crowd in an unavoidably contagious way. The only way to truly experience this new face of UK grime is to live it. The only way to live it is to buy or sell your Slowthai tickets via StubHub now!
