30 seconds interview: Adian Coker

Adian Coker

South London rapper Adian Coker has been getting hype in underground circles with a fiery, contemporary take on hip hop.

Since his debut mixtape Lights Fantastic in 2012 and follow up heater Cream, Adian has achieved some critical success with the likes of BBC 1Xtra and The Fader both celebrating his talents.

His latest work is the Connect EP, a six tracker showing off his wordplay, slick delivery and often fierce bars. It’s a release showing that he’s now coming into his own as both a producer and behind the mic. We spend 30 seconds with him…
