Let us introduce you to Peaky, a UK rapper with a worldwide sound that is already getting a massive thumbs up from some of Hip-Hops leading bloggers and deejays. ‘Crazy Pupil Syndrome’ is a free download concept album that you need in your life. This is something refreshingly creative, original and very unique; an album that you can’t afford to sleep on.
The story within the album takes the listener on a reflective journey into a few days of Peaky’s life, set a year ago; addicted to weed, reclusive, and disorganized. Now in a very different place, with so many things popping off for Peaky, this is a project that any discerning fan of real music will respect and love.
Musically, this album lends itself to some awesomely soulful, jazzy and funky vibrations with a 90’s golden era Boom Bap style. There are also more experimental and chilled tracks, which balance the more aggressive trap style tracks well. It’s diverse in its approach but has a very defining sound throughout, with an array of music videos already out virally.
Born and raised in Ladbroke Grove, West London, England, Peaky started writing and producing at the age of fifteen, just after winning a Bursary Scholarship to Charterhouse Boarding School at age the age of thirteen. Being educated there gave Peaky a broad perspective on either end of the economic spectrum which can be seen in the way he delivers and writes songs.
Peaky is also part of the collective known as FRWRDthnkrs which he runs with experimental, electronic Hip-Hop producer HAWF who produced the ‘Advent’ project where together they released one track a day for the 25 days of December up to Christmas, at the end of 2013. Earlier this year Peaky did an independent tour of South California and performing alongside Bizzy Bone, Reverie & Devin the Dude. He was also made a member of the West Coast collective theFreshState, proving once more that he is more than just your average UK emcee.
