UK Grime artist swaps gang culture for the studio, aims to inspire others to change their lives
Now one of UK grime’s most promising artists, midlands MC Fangol was in a very different place in 2012. Embroiled in UK gang culture at the time, Fangol hit a turning point at age 19 when two of his friends – one in Nottingham, one in London – were shot and killed.
Just two years later, Fangol tells the motivational story of how he’s turned his life around with debut album/mixtape ‘Wake Up’.
With lyrics inspired by his colourful transition from UK street life to musical ambition and success, he is an artist who is working to prove that with the right motivation people can get work to get themselves out of difficult situations. By focussing fully on the music and film industry in the last couple of years, Fangol has gone from living in danger every day to producing some of the most promising Hip-Hop in the industry at the moment.
Typified by single ‘Things Have Changed’, which you can watch the video for here:
Set for individual release on 18th April – his music blends underground grime sounds with R&B and hip-hip styles, specialising in tight melodies and rhythms. Rooted in the reality of his previous situation, the overall tone is an uplifting one, aiming to inspire others in difficult situations that they can change their path with the right motivation and positive action.
