South London lyricist Loski, 18, was featured in our emcees to watch list in January—and now he's back to prove why we were right to do so. A leading light in UK drill crew Harlem Spartans, Loski's name has been bubbling, really, since 2016's "Hazards" single, and he's been consistently dropping banger after banger ever since. Putting aside some of the content that makes UK drill so menacing—on new track "Cool Kid", he opts for a more uptempo, club-ready production (courtesy of iO) with lyrics that speak to being a cool kid on road. "I actually wrote this song with no beat," Loski told Complex. "When I heard the beat, I knew that it would go well with those lyrics and, yeah, it just worked! I'm excited about what's to come and, hopefully, the fans are as well."
Directed by frequent Stormzy and Section Boyz collaborator, Kaylum Dennis, watch exclusively above as young Los' takes us on a tour of his world.
