Barrio Loco

It is always assumed that modern hip hop is a male dominated, swagger-centric pissing contest. Who owns more, who has a bigger car or crew. Conscious thought and social commentary replaced with the antithesis of the Four Elements. What proves to be a refreshing crosswind, then, is Bobbie Johnson; a fresh droplet in a stagnating pond, a new battery, allowing hip hop to recharge and re-energise

Based in Brighton she has just released her EP ‘You & I’, showcasing her diversity with songs such as the melodic and socially-aware ‘Great Britain’ and the triple-time lyrically heavy first single, Bang. Over the past year, she has been supporting the likes of Rag N Bone Man, Roots Manuva, The Pharcyde and festival stages around the UK and Europe, she has gained the nickname of the ‘Rapping Adele’ increasing her fan base with every show she commands, promoting the new age voice of hip hop
