UK Artist of the Week: Abby Power

Conscious hip-hop artist Abby Power does North West London proud with the release of her innovative new single “Thoughts Of An Artist,” out now.

The UK hip-hop scene is having an absolute moment right now and what’s better is that it’s jam-packed with some extremely talented females. Abby Power is our latest discovery and we sure are excited to see what she gets up to next. Her latest cut, “Thoughts Of An Artist” is a celestial slice of lo-fi hip-hop that merges the old school with the new, and we’re so here for it.

Talking about the single, Abby explains, “‘Thoughts Of An Artist’ is a song I was drawn to immediately because for some reason it reminded me of the old Marc Ecko game Getting Up… more specifically one of my favourite songs from the game, Mobb Deep “Survival of the Fittest,” so it reminded me of my early teenage years, and turned it into a song about the life me and majority of the world are living right now, adults working a 9-5 and paying the bills.

I don’t care about the fact I’m not flashy and don’t have money like a lot of the rappers out these days, but regardless of how broke I am, it still doesn’t take away from my pen game. In the end I’m just happy to have hip hop in my life, and I’ll be alright as long as I don’t let music leave my side again!”

“Thoughts Of An Artist” is taken from Abby’s second EP “Class of ’94” which is also in stores now.
