Kozzie continues his 100% hit rate this year with Way Back Then, the second single from his forthcoming Koz The Kid 2 EP. We’ve already celebrated the power of artist independence with Doing It Alone and now, alongside Discarda, Drifter and Big Shizz, the new single also demonstrates strength in numbers.
The video for Way Back Then sees our MCs walking through an estate proudly as they rhyme about the dues they’ve paid so far, capturing Grime in its purest form as the artists enjoy each other’s bars and going in. Kozzie and Drifter fly the flag for South London, while Discarda and Big Shizz hold it down for East London, the birthplace of Grime. This generation of artists understand the power of progressing the scene forward supporting one another, and are making great tracks such as this as a result!
Kozzie has already received great support this year, with Doing It Alone playlisted on BBC Radio 1Xtra following its premiere by Logan Sama on Kiss FM. The remix, featuring Little Dee & Blacks, was a world exclusive play on MistaJam’s 1Xtra show, with i-D Magazine premiering online. With the EP coming July 7th, expect more love and backing from the UK’s biggest tastemakers as Kozzie rises to the top of the tree!
