Joker Starr - Blood-Ren LP [FlukeBeat]

Joker Starr – Blood-Ren LP [FlukeBeat]

"MCing is about expression", Joker states in no uncertain terms, "it needs to come from you". A potent mixture of talent, vision and dynamism, Joker Starr is ready to add a new facet to hip hop music. His debut album "Blood-Ren" can be described as having a Golden New Era hiphop sound that appeals to the boom bap purist whilst ticking all the right boxes for the commercial hip hop listener.

Having heard good things both muscially and via word-of-mouth it was high time that I interviewed Joker Starr, a hungry and ambitious MC from Slough. He deserves to be bigger than David Brent so check this interview and get to know!

Raw Spitter – Joker Starr

“It’s based on a personality and a goal,” explains 21 year old Kebbie Conteh about the meaning behind his hip-hop moniker Joker Starr. “’Joker’ was given to me by my cousins when I was younger, and ‘star’ is what I want to be.” Having been rapping seriously for only three years, it is impressive what he has so far been able to achieve.

A Wise Child – Soliheen

Due to the modest financial returns it offers the majority of its artists, British hip-hop has had more than its fair share of casualties over the years. One example of this is the defunct collective Lords of Rap. After releasing a string of singles in the early 1990s with limited success, the London-based quartet decided to split up. Eight years on, the group’s main producer and rapper Def G now goes by the name of Soliheen and was the man responsible for producing two of the tracks on Ty’s well-received debut LP as well as crafting beats for new rhyme-slinger Joker Starr.
