East London artist Kojey Radical has given the visual treatment to his latest single, “Gangsta”.
On this track Kojey uses his skills as a lyricist to create a heartfelt offering dedicated to all the women in his life, specifically his mother. Similarly to the song, the visuals are centred around the theme of motherhood and follow a mum as she goes through the highs and lows.
“Any time I come to a sense of reasoning or a sense of self, it’s normally because of the advice or presence of women around me, whether that’s my mum, my sisters or the mother or my son,” Kojey says. “This song is a celebration of those women and an appreciation of everything they’ve been through. For me, their ability to persevere through everything is the definition of what a gangster actually is.”
“Gangsta” is the second single to be released from Kojey Radical’s highly-anticipated debut album, following on from the Lex Amor-assisted “War Outside”, which is set to arrive in 2022.
