CHART-TOPPING rapper slowthai will play the Refectory, University of Leeds, on March 18 2022 on his Hell Is Home tour.
Last Friday, he had the rapper’s delight of his second album, Tyron, entering both the UK album chart and UK vinyl chart at number one, already selling more than double the units of his May 2019 debut, Nothing Great About Britain.
A stand-out from Tyron being championed by fans is the affecting album closer, adhd, where slowthai “digs deep and finds untold courage to expose the inner workings of his mind”.
The video is a counterpoint to the commotion caused by those for singles Cancelled and Vex, finding Northampton-born slowthai, 26, in a contemplative space: a one-take shot of him with a city-scape backdrop, feeling distant from the noise and bustle of the world.

Tickets for slowthai’s Leeds gig, one of 12 dates on next year’s tour, will go on general sale on Friday (5/3/2021) via slowthai.com.
