North Lon­don lyr­i­cist Coops drops his appro­pri­ately titled ‘Politricks Free­style’ ahead of his new album ‘Crimes Against Cre­ation’ next month. With Talos on the beat, the free­style was recor­ded less than 48 hours ago ready to drop today to match the speed at which Coops cre­ates. See­ing him­self as a social com­ment­at­or,  he con­tinu­ously asks for people to scratch below the sur­face and wake up to the obvi­ous issue we’re sur­roun­ded by.

‘Crimes Against Cre­ation’ is an 8‑track pro­ject — made in just 4 stu­dio ses­sions — turned around in record time to ensure Coops’ music was released dur­ing this unpar­alleled time in his­tory. Highly appro­pri­ate for these times, title track ‘Crimes Against Cre­ation’ is the stand out voice of this gen­er­a­tion and his mes­sage to the world. ‘Warped per­cep­tion, thwart con­nec­tions, they force per­fec­tion, then claim the anti­dotes an injec­tion…’ plays out and we begin to appre­ci­ate how the cur­rent situ­ation is play­ing heav­ily on his mind. As the album pro­gresses we get to see all sides of Coops’ per­son­al­ity with ‘Piss Poor’ remind­ing us of the raw gritty Lon­don life­style from which he has ris­en from, whilst ‘Pro­file’ demon­strates his softer more promis­cu­ous side as well as touch­ing on themes of fath­er­hood and online rela­tion­ships.

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.
