UK Rapper Loyle Carner Dazzles KOKO With His Depth And Modesty

“There’s no fights at a Loyle Carner show,” said the man himself on a recent visit to Camden’s KOKO.

The 21 year old UK rapper showed his humble side last Wednesday, with shout outs to his friends, fans and family, which made him easy to warm to in the concert venue. But that’s just the sort artist Carner is: all heart.

Adorning the stage was a giant sports shirt with Eric Cantona written on the back. Carner’s dad, who sadly passed away when he was only young, was a huge fan of the footballing legend, so it made for a fitting tribute. Carner even has a song out explaining the relationship, which he delivered on the night beautifully.

At one point in the evening a member of the audience collapsed with a seizure. But, rather than just continue on, or bring the set to a complete standstill, Carner used the opportunity to explain to us that his dad had in fact died from a seizure. A poem was then dropped out of respect for the fan.

Carner’s big songs on the night included Stars & Shards, Florence and Mufasa and NO CD (below). Ain’t Nothing Changed provided a much needed reminder to the haters out there that his music is more than just family raps.

However, that didn’t stop him turning the stage into a makeshift living room, complete with a lamp, armchair and side table.

Support came from Manik, Rebel Kleff and Canadian rap duo, OthaSoul.

Next up on Carner’s tour this weekend are trips to Manchester and Bristol, followed by an expedition around Europe.
