Coops… the UK phenomenon well known for his rich catalogue of soul infused hip-hop, has just
announced the release of his newest LP “Lost Soul 2”. Since the release of the original Lost Soul
album, Coops’ journey in music has led to him revisiting the concept of the iconic release with a
fresh perspective and a decades worth of musical experience.
“Before making lost soul 2 I had to revisit Lost Soul. I didn't want to replicate Lost Soul and probably
couldn't even if I tried. I did however want to reconnect with the early processes that were behind the
making of that first album and then allow it to evolve. it is not a continuation but an evolution. An
evolution of sound and styles, writing and production and of personal growth and maturity.”

Throughout his late teens Coops was making music with his friends, but it wasn’t until he looked at
himself and the world around him that he changed his writing approach and decided to go it alone.
“I’ve always had the mind-set that if I’m true to myself and where I am, as a social commentator or
looking inside myself documenting that stage of my life, then I’ll have endless material.”
Having already built a strong momentum for himself with several releases under his belt ( ‘What Do
You See’ in 2011, ‘Lost Soul’ in 2014 & ‘God Complex’ in 2016), Coops signed to High Focus Records
in 2017 and quickly released two critically acclaimed projects in just a year – the introductory ‘No
Brainer’ and the full length opus ‘Life In The Flesh’. Returning in 2020 with the existential
masterpiece ‘Crimes Against Creation’, Coops questions the current state of hip hop, politics, and the world
