Lowkey brings his politically charged hip hop to cities across the UK this September, claiming dates in Leeds, Sheffield, Birmingham, Glasgow, Edinburgh and Manchester. Known widely by his stage name, Kareem Dennis is a head figure within London’s hip hop and activism scenes. With a long list of collaborators including the likes of Wretch 32, Immortal Technique, Jon McClure of Reverend and The Makers as well as the original members of the collective that signalled his rap beginnings, the Poisonous Poets, Lowkey gained a reputation for his politically charged lyrics touching on hard hitting topics such as racism, war and global issues. The rapper quickly became known as one of the biggest conscious emcees of the UK.
Having only returned to the music scene a year ago following a four year hiatus, Lowkey brought with him a brand new track, his lyrical focus still set on current political issues as he highlights the refugee crisis in ‘Ahmed’. Now, he brings his activist poetry to cities all over the UK.
