Soundtrack To The Struggle

Lowkey is a Poet, Playwright, Political Activist and award winning Hip Hop Artist who has received airplay on numerous major radio stations including BBC Radio 1, Capital FM, Kiss FM, Choice FM and BBC 1Xtra and toured internationally performing to crowds everywhere from Glastonbury and Trafalgar Square to Germany and Amsterdam.

Born 1986 at St. Georges Hospital in Tooting to a British father from Dover and an Arab mother, herself born in Baghdad. Lowkey is a much needed bridge between many different worlds. He first made his name at the age of 17, attending the open mic sessions which took place at the infamous Deal Real record shop on Carnaby Street, Central London in 2003. The first time he went, another MC by the name of Loki, who had previously been a regular at the weekly open mic, confronted him and they battled for use of the name. Lowkey was named the winner by the audience and other MC's present.

He has attracted a large fan base and much critical acclaim since the release of his Key to the Game mix CD series, winning awards for Best Newcomer 2005 at the Lyric Pad Hip Hop Awards and in Undercover Magazine.

Logic and Lowkey are co-founders of non profit organization The Peoples Army, started in Brixton, South London. They took part in the NSPCC's "Don't Hide It" campaign in 2007, recording an exclusive track for the project.

News has also leaked about a supergroup band project named Mongrel. The band includes members of the Arctic Monkeys, Babyshambles and Reverend and the Makers.

Lowkey is also a member of rap group Poisonous Poets. Lowkey entered the Sunrise Poetry Slam at the Big Chill Festival 2008 and was named the winner defeating 15 other poets.
