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.
