Who are you, and where are you from?
I’m Kojey Radical. I’m a spoken word poet, musician, contemporary artist, and founder of media collective PUSHCRAYONS. I’m from Hoxton, East London.
What keeps you occupied on a daily basis?
Creating, my music of course – I’m always thinking and trying to articulate how my next project will sound, how it will be presented, and how I want my fans to perceive it. It’s so important to me that my music translates in the way it’s supposed to.
How did you start making music?
I was already experimenting and working within the arts from early, and I had an idea for an art project, which then transpired into me writing poetry. My journey through my different artforms led me into finally making music. I have no regrets.
Do you think that your diversity (Dance, Fine arts, film) helps your with your music?
Absolutely. My music is one thing, yet everything else I position around it; the visuals, the narrative, the creative – that is shaped using experiences that I draw from all these different avenues I have explored.
What was your first favourite song? (that you remember)
Oh No – Nate Dogg, Mos def and Pharaoh Monch.
What is your best power piece at the moment? (clothing, collectors item etc)
My Supreme Fuck You hoodie never lets me down.
What is your favourite visual at the moment and why? (art, photography, videos)
My creative for my track, Gallons. It’s my latest project and I’m proud of it, and what it represents, and how my creative team (The REST) delivered another provocative piece of work.
Which music artists are you currently listening to and would you recommend others?
Mainly listening to Francis and the Lights, 808 ink, TE Dness and Jay IDK right now.
