South London rapper Che Lingo explores the deeper, more heartfelt side of U.K. rap, aiming to bring emotional intelligence to his lyrics and beats.
He started out at 16 experimenting in his local youth club studio, where he developed his own style. Eventually, he took to open-mike nights, where his manager spotted him and offered to work with him on his 21st birthday. His debut EP, Charisma, landed in 2018, preceding a mini-album — and mission statement of sorts — titled Sensitive, which saw release the following year. ~ Liam Martin
