Hailing from South London, 19-year-old Loyle Carner raps with a maturity beyond his years. His long awaited debut EP, A Little Late had the UK hip-hop scene awash with praise and emotion. A record filled with soul, melody and pain, opening with the choking, Ariel Pink-sampling ‘BFG’, in which Carner addresses his immense grief of losing his dad.
Marking the anniversary of his father’s passing yesterday, Loyle Carner released a self-directed black and white video. The footage is a metaphorical portrayal of his grief, as he carries his brother on his shoulders while the environment collides. Incredibly moving and poignant, Loyle Carner is reaffirmed as an artist worth knowing.
