Art Of Survival

Kingpins latest album out now on iTunes and limited edition compact disc! You can also purchase on Bandcamp for both digital and physical copies.

Following on from the successful release of his debut Hip Hop album and short anti gun film of the same name, ‘The Initiative’, UK rapper Kingpin continued to amplify his skills with the collaborative release of the award winning project  ‘Shame the Devil’ with his group Caxton Press shortly after.

Underworld Konnect are now proud to announce the forthcoming release of Kingpin’s second solo album ‘Art of Survival’.

At a time where social change, political affairs and musical evolution is at its peak, the 16 track album arrives at a timely release, with lyricism depicting the inner-city environment of London that Kingpin inhabits and musicality that marries gritty Boom Bap beats with fine tuned production that sits comfortably within the current Hip Hop charts.

Featuring beats from established and newly emerging producers including:  Chemo aka Telemachus, Strange Neighbor (Revorg records), Cappah, Chairman Maff, Pro P, Otee Scoundrel, Crossbone T this is one for both head nodding crate diggers and the new age fans of Hip Hop with its soulful jazzy samples and images of contemporary society through its subject matter.

The Art of Survival captivates its audience from the moment you press play, joining the artist on a journey through laid back boom bap beats and clever social observations to explosive, hard hitting delivery and punchy instrumentals; an accurate soundscape of Kingpin’s city life and conscious message.

This rapper certainly practises what he preaches, featuring recently on Channel 4 News as the star of “Rappers Guide to Gardening” and winning his self funded short anti gun film “The Initiative” a screening at the British Urban Film Festival. His positive messages transcend onto his multiple artistic merits. This rapper is now equipped with a highly anticipated album!

Kingpin stays true to the essence of Hip Hop that he is clearly influenced by, intelligently representing a voice of the voiceless of his community as well as impressive wordplay and street poetry. This one is sure to be a UK classic. the album will be available at his live launch event as well as all digital and in-store outlets.
