The Break Presents: Adian Coker

Standout: “Angels & Demons”

Also Check Out [World Premiere]: “Air & Graces”

Name: Adian Coker

Age: 24

Reppin’: Woolwich, South-East London. I was actually born in Sierra Leone, but I moved to London when I was four.

My style and/or skills have been compared to: A bunch of people. The obvious comparisons are there of course because I make beats and rap. A lot of the time it depends on the track itself, it ranges from Roots Manuva, to Lupe to Kanye.

My standout records and/or moments have been: When I made the beat for “Airs & Graces, “ I knew I had something. When I wrote and recorded it, that was a moment for me because I felt like it was just a well-crafted track. It is grounded in hip-hop but also has a rock element with the overdrive guitar in the chorus and then the singing at the end takes it to a whole new dimension. Also, I toured France recently as a support act, doing five thousand people a night! You learn a lot about the process of putting a tour together and this really helps when you’re planning your own shows. So that was definitely a defining moment for me.

I’m gonna change the game by: Being one of the first UK artists to be a mainstream Hip-Hop export. The UK scene isn’t as big or as respected as it should be, and that’s definitely something I hope to change.

I’d Like to Work With: Man, way too many people to even name. Of course you have the God’s of rap that can’t go unmentioned (Jay, ‘Ye, Eminem). But I’m a musician as well so I’ve grown up playing and listening to a diverse range of music. So artists like the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Seal, Bobby Caldwell.

My goal in hip-hop is: To continue to push the boundaries of what Hip-Hop is and can be. I’m a firm believer in constantly trying to create new sounds and experimenting with music. But mainly I want to be remembered as someone who had dope raps and made crazy beats!

I’m gonna be the next: guy that gets a “XXL” mixtape and album rating!
