Joyner Lucas

Conscious & controversial US Rapper's UK debut

BAM!BAM!BAM! Presents

Joyner Lucas will tour the UK for the very first time this year. Lucas has been making waves in the rap game, going viral with “I’m Not Racist” and “Frozen,” two socially-conscious tracks with potent imagery tackling racism and reckless driving. His co-signs are a big deal, with Eminem, Chris Brown, and Timbaland are among those who’ve celebrated the rising star. Eminem telling none other than Elton John that Lucas is one of his favourite rappers.

Lucas is readying his debut album, following his critically acclaimed mixtape 508-507-2209, as well as a joint album with his "Stranger Things" & “I Don’t Die” collaborator Chris Brown titled Angels and Demons. The duo released "Stranger Things" earlier this year following a solo single titled “Frozen” and as of recently “I Don’t Die”.

It has been suggested that it doesn't matter where you're from, but where you're at. Hip-Hop has proven that both locations matter equally. However, every once in a while you get an artist like Joyner Lucas that is more concerned about where they are going.

"My music is purity," says Lucas. "I try to have a bit of everything. I can't please everybody, but I try to with my music. I am a musical guy, so I couldn't pigeon hole myself even if I tried."

Lucas' latest offering Along Came Joyner proves this. The conceptual album revolves around a story about a man from another planet who gets kicked out of home by his mother, lands on earth and begins a quest to find his human father. A story that isn't too far off from Lucas' real-life experiences.
