Razkid

Born and raised in Cardiff, South Wales, Razkid is a MOBO artist who specialises in Grime and Rap Music but also ventures into different genres to stay versatile and refreshing. The subject matter of his lyrics can range from brutally honest observations and self reflection to boasts of self confidence and undiluted views on whatever matter he speaks on at the time. All of his production is handled by long term collaborator Minas and they’re now 5+ years working relationship has given them the creative trust to challenge each-other and try new things while still remembering what their dimension of music authentically sounds like. Razkid entered the local Cardiff music scene by releasing the full length project ‘Broke By Monday’ which was inspired by his generation’s lifestyle of living from pay check to pay check and finding solace in recreational drug use and nightlife culture on weekends, said project was released on his own grass roots label ‘Gutterbreed’ which ended up being nominated for ‘Best Album’ at the Cardiff Music Awards putting his name next to big welsh acts outside of his genre such as Boy Azooga.

Since then Razkid has steadily released singles including the stand out ‘Life Is Strange’ which got played by DJ Target on his BBC radio 1xrta show and was previously supported by BBC’s Horizon Launchpad Fund. Razkid’s Future Plans are to continue and accelerate his momentum eventually leading up to his next full length project and spread his name over the UK representing what his city is capable of musically.
