In Hip Hop, Other by Nick Russell

Here’s the latest single from the widely revered South London born and raised poet, lyricst and rapper Kate Tempest. ‘Firesmoke’ is from her forthcoming album ‘The Book Of Traps And Lessons‘, set for release June 14th. The album was crafted with the living legend Rick Rubin and Dan Carey over the course of the past five years. Speaking of the song, Kate said “I think of the song like a cleansing moment in the wider context of the record, in the same way that a relationship can be a cleansing moment in the wider context of a life. A kind of a turning point. I wrote it for my woman. Inspired by her and everything that falling in love with her has taught me.”
