Last month, North Lon­don lyr­i­cist Coops announced his forth­com­ing album “Crimes Against Cre­ation” com­ing via High Focus Records on 9th July. Ahead of release, the gritty and elu­sive rap­per drops his second single “Bring The Fire”, a pro­found state­ment demon­strat­ing his dis­il­lu­sion with the world.  Accur­ately pre­dict­ing the cur­rent cir­cum­stances he states ‘It’s crazy how much they keep from us’ fol­lowed by ‘it’s like a vol­cano destined to erupt’, which res­on­ates and reflects with the state of soci­ety.

See­ing him­self as a social com­ment­at­or, Coops con­tinu­ously draws inspir­a­tion from everything around him and is feel­ing more inspired than ever. Hav­ing signed to the label in 2018 he has already released 2 poignant albums and con­tin­ues to cre­ate at rap­id speed. The 8‑track pro­ject — which was made in just 4 stu­dio ses­sions — is unlike Coops’ usu­al 14+ track albums both he and his fans have become used to. Coops turned the album around in record time to ensure his music was released dur­ing this unpar­alleled time in his­tory. The homegrown beats come from his close friend and long term col­lab­or­at­or Talos who has pro­duced almost all his beats to date.

Coops’ music­al entry point begun by mak­ing music with his friends, but it wasn’t until he really looked at him­self and the world around him when he decided he needed to go it alone, open­ing his mind and his solo stream of cre­ativ­ity which hasn’t stopped since. A self-pro­claimed her­mit he embod­ies the essence of a true artist and only finds com­fort in doing what he loves, not what he is told. ‘Crimes Against Cre­ation’ is due out on High Focus Records on 9th July.
