Fekky

Fekky (born 21/4/1987) is a rappers who became a rising star in London's grime scene by uploading self-produced videos to YouTube.

Early Life

Fekky was born on 21st of April, 1987 in Lewisham, South East London. in 2011, he got in first appearance on the scene where he started by laying down a number of ideas with some of his friends and put out "Ring RIng Trap" with an online video. The song was a huge start for the Mc after it drew around 10,000 views in few days. The young artist didn’t waste time and quickly followed up with "Fire in the Booth," which earned him even more fans.

The rappers later decided to embark on small-scale nationwide tours, gaining more and more exposure throughout the country. Honing in on the fact that grime isn’t necessarily associated with the high-class lifestyle that various aspects of hip-hop are quick to depict, the young MC stated that

"grime is tracksuits, it’s not Rolexes."

His approach to the scene proved a refreshing one, with many citing and commending the raw honesty in Fekky’s music.

More success followed when he was snapped up by Stateside hip-hop heavyweight the Game to open up for him on his 2014 United Kingdom tour[4][5]
