North London rapper Asher Kosher – founding member and pillar of the Hackney-based Root 73 studio and artist community – is back after a long hiatus with ‘On Our Street’; a single marking the start of a new chapter in his artist career. Raised on a diet of A Tribe Called Quest, Tu-Pac, Eminem and later, UK rappers like Dizzee Rascal, Sway and Choong Family – as well as Benjamin Zephaniah’s 2004 book, ‘Gangsta Rap’ – Kosher’s love of lyricism runs deep.
“This is about me feeling at ease with my self”, Kosher says of ‘On Our Street’ – the first single to be released from a forthcoming full-length project. “It’s a full circle moment for me and I feel privileged to have Bel Cobain a part of it, too. She came to us through The Silhouettes Project and she’s a big, big talent.”
