Tottenham rapper Coops had an exciting day last week, with the announcement that he had signed to leading UK Hip Hop label High Focus Records. To celebrate this fact, he dropped his first H.F release with ‘Stoner’, a track taken from his 2016 album God Complex.
This is big news for Coops, who after three self-released projects will now be recording new material with High Focus. We’ve been on to Coops since 2014’s Lost Soul, which enticed us immediately with its introspective boom bap stoner raps.
Directed by Craig Capone, the new video brings us into Coops’s world of Zen (which includes Coronas, buddha statues and females in yoga pants). The video is a tight match with the High Focus label, who have always had an apt ear in locating the waviest UK Hip Hop sounds. They also boasts the roster of Ocean Wisdom, Rag ‘n’ Bone Man, Dirty Dike, Lee Scott and more, which gives Coops strong musical company.
We look forward to this linkup delivers – keep your ears out for new Coops work soon.
