British rapper, poet, and creative director Kojey Radical uses a mix of grime, alternative rap, and spoken word to convey his perspective on race and life in Britain. He started out as a spoken word poet. After graduating from the London College of Fashion, he released his first music project, Dear Daisy: Opium. His official debut EP, The Garden Party, surfaced in 2014 with help on production from Jay Prince. Over time, he shifted his output into more overtly political territory. This newfound sense of self found its way into his second EP, 2016's 23Winters. His third EP, 2016's In God's Body, continued in the same vein. A fourth EP, 2019's Cashmere Tears, preceded the release of his debut album, 2022's Reason to Smile.
