K Koke Talks Jail, Roc Nation, Dappy & Debut Album With Plugsville

In light of the release of his hotly anticipated return to the music game, K Koke unleashes his FFF Prison EP, boasting features from frequent collaborator Maverick Sabre, West London’s prolific vocalist, Angel and a pleasantly surprising appearance from fellow troubled Greek rapper, singer and songwriter, Dappy. One of the most skilled yet controversial and troubled UK rappers in the history of the UK Rap game sits down with Plugsville founder and editor Ajay Rose to talk the long and hard journey so far as they touch on the rapper spending time in jail, his short lived Roc Nation deal, history with fellow North West London creative, Dappy and his forthcoming debut album.

This twenty minute, in-depth interview sees Koke walk us through some pivotal moments in his career, from the highs of completely breaking down seemingly unbreakable barriers in the UK Rap scene, being the first or one of the first to attain so many unprecedented successes and achievements, as well as the lows and heartbreak of what the police did to disrupt his upward trajectory in the entertainment industry – just as he thought he had made it out of the hood life and into a completely new space.

The story of K Koke is a very troubling and frustrating one – filled with ups and downs and unapologetic, free-flowing and amazing music. This is captured well in this interview but is also expanded upon as we get to know more of the story that was seemingly initially untold until now, as the uncompromising rapper details some of the unavoidable happenings and processes behind the conception of some of his prior projects and releases as the reasons behind his stints away from music.

Take this one in and let us know your thoughts on the topics touched upon and the quite intriguing politics involved in the ups and downs of K Koke’s music career so far. This one is definitely a deep interview, so make sure you’re paying attention all the way through otherwise you’re definitely likely to miss something interesting.
