The South London artist entered the scene with his debut EP ‘Falling Forward’ earlier this year – a carefully composed narrative of his experiences being part of two cultures. Born in the Ivory Coast and raised in Deptford, South London, Lobby Boy’s music possesses a certain level of wisdom and a cross-cultural blend of subject matter as a result.
In ‘Pride’, Lobby Boy recounts the initial struggle of associating himself with rap music and everything it connotes. “I didn’t really like the negative connotations that come with calling yourself a rapper, but I told myself if It ever gets to the point I really wanna release shit then I’ll have to put my pride aside.”
An artistic blend of visuals, the video for Pride marks the first video release in conjunction with the EP. Watch it here:
‘Falling Forward’ is available to download on all streaming sites.
