Loyle first appeared on the scene back in 2014, with his debut EP ‘A Little Late’, which cemented him in the UK’s rap scene as one to watch. He followed that up in 2017 with his BRIT (Best Male, Best Newcomer) and Mercury Prize nominated, top 20 debut ‘Yesterday’s Gone’. The bedrock of honest and raw sentimentality that you hear on ‘Yesterday’s Gone’ has left an inextinguishable mark on music in general and UK Hip Hop in particular, standing out as an ageless, bulletproof debut.
During this period, Loyle began showing his inherent commitment to the communities around him, launching a cooking school for young people with ADHD, which has offered support and guidance to young people for 5 years and counting. He has also been an active campaigner for improving mental health, as an ambassador for charities such as CALM and Black Minds Matter.
