South London rapper Loski is making major waves within the hip-hop scene. At just 19 years old, the affiliate of Kennington's Harlem Spartans has already reached a number of career milestones, such as garnering millions of YouTube views with tracks like “Cool Kid” and “Forrest Gump,” securing major headlining shows, and catching the attention of heavy-hitters like Drake and Stormzy.
The rising star sat down with Complex News' Fenn O'Meally for his first extensive interview, in which he discussed his recording process, his dream to collaborate with Nicki Minaj, and how he felt when Drizzy gave him a co-sign. The latter topic left Loski in disbelief.
“See, the Drake thing, I thought it was kind of fake,” Loski recalled. “He keeps messaging me and commenting on my [Instagram] stuff […] Before, there’s a group Harlem Spartans, my friends—he followed that page before, but no one messaged him, so he didn’t DM it. Then my manager was like, ‘Message him. Go for it.’ So I messaged him, I just said, ‘Yo.’ And hes, like, ‘What you sayin’ G?’ And I’m, like, ‘Whaaaat?!? That’s mad.’”
We're sure a lot of up-and-comers would have the same reaction.
