A prized emcee from the UK Grime scene, Capo Lee has long since been the poster boy for “injecting the stagnant scene with urgent flows and angst-laced bars” (Complex). Matched with his visionary thinking that has seen him work with Chip, Jammer, P Money, D Double E, Prez T and AJ Tracey, he also been instrumental in bringing revolutionary ideas to life. Creating his ‘Why Not 3’ mixtape, recorded in one studio sitting within 10 hours, featuring the cream of grimes producers and artists, Capo Lee is as brave as he is bold and with the forthcoming release of his project ‘Heart Of A Champ’, he tests his boundaries more than they’ve ever been tested before.
Releasing ‘Way Too Long’ as the first bite of the tape, the Lewi B production pays homage to the very fabric of grime that Capo Lee is built from. Choral synths create the dark, raw ambience whilst the skippy beat laden with a collection of drums, hi-hats and snappy clicks opens the door for Capo Lee to bring unreserved energy and flow. Queue the scattergun delivery, his maverick, on-but-off-beat flow and lyrical bars that build into the head-bopping hook and we’re left in no doubt that shit is about to get very real on this brand-new collection of music.
A 10-track project, ‚Heart of A Champ’ is Capo Lee’s most explorative work to date and is available now for pre-order ahead of its release on 22nd November. Completely refreshing, the genre mix delves into garage, rap and trap. The records flirt with female vocals, laid-back flows and a mix of both introspective and entertaining topics as he delivers music that shows a side to him that we’ve not been exposed to heavily before.
