Kojey Radical returns with his latest single “Gangsta”, the second song to be unveiled from his highly anticipated debut album which will finally arrive in 2022. Coming hot off the success of previous single “War Outside (feat. Lex Amor)”, “Gangsta” is Kojey Radical at his most personal and autobiographical as he again flexes his singing voice over an original live score that sounds a great, unearthed orchestral sample and production from KZ, Swindle, Ed Thomas and Jay Weathers. Subverting any preconceptions of how the song will sound from the title alone, “Gangsta” is an anthem for, and tribute to, the powerful female figures in Kojey Radical’s life; first and foremost, his mother (“I think my mama was a gangster, I think my daddy was a rolling stone) and the mother of his son.

Radiating an earnest energy and determination, acclaimed balladeer Andy Martin has returned today with a final single for the year, concluding a 2021 that most would envy.
