LOWKEY

Extremely political UK grime rapper who went underground after his explosive song 'Obama Nation'. He speaks out against the ruling class, social engineering, corrupt capitalism and gangsterism in politics.

 

Lowkey’s home was raided in December 2010 by British security forces (Mint Press News). Still he was an outspoken candidate at antiwar rallies, denouncing imperialism's effect on a global level.

 

Lowkey had a friend who survived the Grenfell Tower fire, and is furious about how greed affected so many people. He lived across the street from the blaze.

"There are corporations competing over the outsourcing of what should be functions of the Council, and functions of the state. And so often, they want to get the highest profit they can.

 ...They do jobs which are just not up to par


Nothing can pretty up the ugliness of plutocratic destruction.

It has to be the death knell of the Theresa May government. Neo-liberalism is discredited. And it is a matter of life or death."

Lowkey respects Jeremy Corbyn and his ideals for a progressive future, one that includes the people for once.

"Previously the idea had been that these people are not speaking to us, about us or for us. Jeremy Corbyn is a clear exception to that rule.

 

We have a choice between policies which foster empathy, and policies which foster greed, resentment, estrangement and alienation."
