Not many rappers can boast that their first ever live performance was at London’s O2 Arena, supporting Hip Hop legend, Nas.

Such was the talent of Coops, who at 23-years-old won Choice FM’s Breakthrough Competition, and the chance to perform alongside one of his formative influences. “I want to be inspired by the greats, rather than what’s current“, the North Londoner explains, citing Jay Z, A Tribe Called Quest and Eminem as other major inspirations.

Having already built a strong momentum for himself with several releases under his belt ( ‘What Do You See‘ in 2011, ‘Lost Soul‘ in 2014 and ‘God Complex‘ in 2016), Coops signed to High Focus Records and quickly released two critically acclaimed projects in just a year – the introductory ‘No Brainer‘ and the full length opus ‘Life In The Flesh‘. Returning in 2020 with the existential masterpiece ‘Crimes Against Creation‘, Coops questions the current state of Hip Hop, politics, and the world.

The latest ‘Home Grown‘ EP is out now.
