sbk is working to prove himself as one of the UKs most exciting emerging artists. Now age 21, the rapper and producer has already released a promising catalogue, with his first single being released at the age of 13, followed by solid offerings like 'Level Up' & 'Uphill Struggle'. Having featured on some of the UKs most prolific platforms such as SBTV, Rinse FM & BBC Radio 1xtra for years, sbk has managed to turn his passion into a full fledged career, all whilst remaining independent. With older EPs like 'God Complex' reaching number 2 on the iTunes chart, sbk has been building on his Grime foundations. In 2022, sbk took a different direction musically, dropping his debut mixtape 'Nothing Lasts Forever' which saw underground success. Having performed and collaborated with Boy Better Know and with performances with the likes of Skepta & JME under his belt, sbk has travelled the world with his music, performing twice in NYC last year and showcasing Milan Fashion Week, not to mention the countless underground raves over the years. sbk has been co-signed by the Grime greats, but it's clear he is now carving out his own unique sound, inspired by emo, punk, trap and alternative music.
