Nothing Great About Britain: Rapper Slowthai on the themes behind his debut album

News Correspondent

‘Nothing Great About Britain’ is the provocative debut album by the 24-year old rapper Slowthai, who ‘reps’, as they say, Northampton.

The album’s vision of Britain in 2019 is dark, divided, ironic and humorous. Through his lyrics, Slowthai’s stance on the monarchy, the government and race is clear.
