NEW TUNE: “Don’t Play Games” by King Kofi

giphyFollowing on from his cult release “Gone Fishin” in June this year, north London rapper King Kofi comes through with the new visuals for his new track “Don’t Play Games”. The third release from his upcoming debut “Summer With The Wolves LP” (via the This Is Not Yellow imprint), the track is released in video form only but available via pre-ordering the album.
Featuring indie/folk/R&B singer Joshua Igbo with a smooth neo-soul chorus, King Kofi juxtaposes his emotive, melancholic lyrics over a bright and poppy instrumental that continues the rapper’s signature unorthodox and compelling style.giphy1
With the “Summer With The Wolves LP” released January 12th, 2018, “Don’t Play Games” channels the kind of jagged yet mainstream-looking instrumental seen with Childish Gambino, but with his  conscious, unpolished flow and tone, King Kofi is very much making his own lane and continues to garner a cult fanbase across the city. Performing live for the album launch on 12 Jan at the Soapbox, Islington, King Kofi’s ambition and erratic style is something to keep an eye on moving into next year.
