After topping the UK charts Slowthai takes to Nottingham to share with us his Hell is Home Tour. “A deeply moving, melancholic – but never self-pitying – record about shame, defiance, childhood, adulthood, mistakes and, ultimately, forgiving yourself. On TYRON, Slowthai roars.” ***** NME.

“Slowthai is the British equivalent of Eminem: a preternaturally talented rapper who acts tough but is too much of an open book to cover his flaws and insecurities.” **** The Times.

“After a debut that declared war on politics, Slowthai became Britain’s most disruptive lyricist. Now, his kaleidoscopic musical roots have a fresh thesis to feed on… and things are about to get loud” GQ.

From the 22 songs played at Rock City in Nottingham, featured was Mazza, NHS and BodyBag. Introducing the crowd to gig with Enemy kick-started the night and provided a taste of what to expect throughout the night. Followed by Cancelled and through to those featured on Slowthai’s album Tryon. Also played on the night in Nottingham was Durg Dealer, T N Biscuits and Doorman.

Slowthai’s album, Tyron projected confidence, energy and attitude throughout the venue. Not only did the crowd fill with excitement, which added to the atmosphere, but Slowthai also engaged with the audience and his fans. Slowthai made sure that all of his fans were caring for each other during mosh pits and that other fans were safe and occasionally stopped songs when someone was in need.

Slowthai will finish his Hell is Home tour at UEA, Norwich on 25th March.

Tyron by Slowthai

“TYRON” is the second studio album by British rapper Slowthai, released in February 2021. The album is named after the rapper’s birth name, Tyron Frampton, and is divided into two parts that reflect different aspects of his personality and experiences.

The album’s first part is more aggressive and confrontational, featuring songs like “Cancelled” that address the backlash Slowthai received after an incident at the 2019 NME Awards. Other tracks like “VEX” and “DEAD” showcase Slowthai’s skill as a rapper, with hard-hitting lyrics and beats that are sure to get listeners moving.

The second part of the album is more introspective and vulnerable, with songs like “NHS” which pay tribute to the UK’s healthcare system and “i tried” which deals with feelings of self-doubt and anxiety. Slowthai’s versatility as an artist is on full display here, with more melodic and emotional tracks that showcase his range as a songwriter and performer.

Overall, “TYRON” is a powerful and personal album that addresses identity, mental health, and social justice issues. Slowthai’s raw and unapologetic approach to his music will resonate with listeners who appreciate honesty and authenticity in their art.
