(United Kingdom)

Beats with soul. Bars with heart. Soulful hip-hop with insightful lyrics. A lyricist, lawyer and a Londoner, Essa initially released music under the name Yungun in the early noughties, in the midst of UK hip hop’s own “golden era”. He earned praise from artists such as Nas and Mark Ronson, and performed and recorded with such luminaries as De La Soul, Wu-Tang Clan, Guru, Slum Village and Pharoahe Monch. Now he’s back with a soulful sound and a collab album with Pitch 92
