Broken­pen is both a Rap­per and Spoken­Word Artist, hav­ing per­formed in places such as Tate Mod­ern Lon­don, BBC Radio Lon­don, Regents Street Cinema, City Hall Lon­don and many more. Col­labroat­ive works include Nat­alie ‘The Floacist’ Stew­art of which he has become a “Flo Poet”.

The E.P prom­ises to tell a story in which many can relate to but also provide an indi­viduel vibe on each track from Grime to HipHop. Broken­pen takes us on a jour­ney start­ing with “Smoke” which is a state­ment let­ting the listen­er know that the music you’re about to listen to is fire. Then he takes us “Back In The Day” with sup­port from sing­er “Christie Blaine” into past rela­tion­ships and les­sons learn in this story telling dis­play of lyr­i­cism. We then move on to “Great­er” which says it all in the title, after the rela­tion­ships go wrong and you go into that dark place the only thing to do is become “Great­er” with power­ful vocals from “Myah Sky”.

After you feel great all thats left to do is “Rise N Flex” which sets an upli­fit­ing and laid back sum­mer vibe with vocals from “Lams”. Finally Broken­pen ends the 5 track E.P by pay­ing respects to the nation he comes from Africa and the coun­tey he was born in Angola with the track titled “Momma Africa” which will take the listen­er on a jour­ney and give an insight to some of the struggle faced as a child leav­ing his home­land.

Hav­ing recently just hos­ted an E.P launch Night on the 26th of June which was a major suc­cess Broken­pen has really put alot of work into this body of work, from pro­du­cing to mix­ing and even design­ing the art­work.

You can listen to the EP on all plat­forms and catch him per­form­ing in some up and com­ing shows by fol­low­ing him on ins­tagram “@brokenpen_” for more inform­a­tion.
