Last week we posted this picture of J. Cole with UK artist K. Koke at the Birmingham leg of Drake's Light Dreams and Nightmares Tour. Today it has been all over the web that K. Koke has signed a deal with Jay-Z's Roc Nation. Word is that there may also be a Cole/Koke collaboration in the near future. K. Koke himself said today via twitter that nothing is official yet. So we'll see. Here's some info on him (by him) and video on the rapper from Stonebridge, North West London!
Born in 1985. Raised my whole life in Stonebridge, London NW10. I rep hard for my ends, my fam and all my loved ones, keeping it real is a must!
I’m new to dis music ting but been doing this street ting all my life!
Nuff people ask why my name’s Koke. It’s simple, coz i’m white and I spit dat pure raw shit dats got listeners hooked! F*ck everyone who don’t like what I stand 4 but you will respect my struggle!
I ain’t on no bullshit, what you hear in my rhymes is real chat!
I'll definitely need to get used to the accent. :-p Roc Nation is going to have me step my international hip hop game up!
