09/09/2020: “Water/If Only They Knew” by Kojey Radical

Technically, the track I wanted to highlight was “If Only” – but the YouTube version is a great piece of art and smoothly integrates the song with the Kendrick Lamar-esque “Water”.

They’re strikingly different songs, sure, but it works. The production on both is excellent, with the latter track coming from Swindle, one of my favourite artists!

Kojey Radical is one of the brightest stars of the UK rap scene. He raps in an articulate, intelligent way, dealing with social issues eloquently and musically.

This song is a couple of years old now, released in 2018. But with the current focus on Black Lives Matter, the video below is more poignant than ever.
