South London rapper Sneakbo has been killing it for almost a decade, and with the release of his debut album Brixton, he's taken it to a whole new level. Complex UK's Fenn O'Meally recently caught up with the 25-year-old rapper to talk about the album, its lyrical content, and how dedicated fans have been willing to travel over 50 miles just to get a physical copy of the album.
"Most of the tracks are just me talking about my life experiences, what I've been through in Brixton. How I've changed and come from a negative life to a positive life," he said. He also spoke about the changes that Brixton has been through over the years, explaining that it's not quite as dark as it used to be and has changed for the better.
With Sneakbo's clear appreciation for South London, Fenn talked with some of London's residents about Brixton, getting to the bottom of why it's such a great place to be. South London has quickly become home to some of the most exciting musicians and communities in the UK, and despite threats of gentrification, it remains a thriving area.
Fenn also stopped by the House of Vans for a special International Women's Day event set up to foster female skateboard culture. There she spoke with organizers of the event who hope to make the scene less intimidating with all-girl sessions.
