We are thrilled to present London's rising star and internet sensation Jimothy at Kilo Lounge! With his unique deadpan rap-style, and incredible viral visuals, Jimothy hails from Camden Town and speaks openly and honestly about his experiences and thoughts on emotions, culture, and the environment around him.
‘Hates being lazy, hates being dumb, hangs with posh white kids and loves his darling mum.’ This introspective line from a year old freestyle is a quick summary of Timmy Gonzalez aka Jimothy Lacoste’s personality and left-of-centre outlook on his North London life. His music has tinges of Mike Skinner and draws accidental parallels to fellow north London dance-grime-electro collective Man Like Me, but his musical lineage seems more informed by an internal struggle with adolescent boredom and filling a void for the shy and insecure. In a world of constant bombardment of ‘new, hot’ 18-year-olds, Jimothy’s approach is more mature and considered, shying away from ‘living for the likes’. His lyrics and music have a more Tony Robbins feel while being framed in the backdrop of grime 2.0 and the new industry of UK road rap. Jimothy has had co-signs from the likes of Hypebeast (10 UK Rappers to Watch) and Dazed (Top 20 Tracks of 2017). Life is getting quite exciting.
Jimothy will be supported by Singapore's favourite rap trio Mediocre Haircut Crew - MHC.
