Out today – Scottish rapper Lotos’ new single, Home

Old school hip-hop collides with dreams of a brighter future in Scottish rapper Lotos’ new single, Home

Fresh, smart and truly authentic, Lotos confidently asserts herself at the forefront of Scotland’s budding hip-hop scene with her new single, Home. The track is inspired by civil rights leader Marcus Garvey, who believed, “a people without the knowledge of their past history and culture is like a tree without roots.”
 

Produced by Edinburgh-born DJ Show n’ Prove – the man behind tracks from the likes of Stormzy, Ed Sheeran, J Hus, Stefflon Don, Lily Allen and Anne-Marie – Home seamlessly blends old school stylings with present-day perspective.
 
Whos your team, whos your sounds? Scottish raised and very proud, Lotos spits effortlessly over a savage, grime-tinged beat. Home is a dancefloor-ready rap track that, in an era of cultural appropriation, reminds us in order to create a better future, we must respect the past.
 
The track is a statement of purpose. Although a Scottish accent is one rarely heard over a hip-hop track, Lotos is no stranger to the mic. With the precision and natural flow of a veteran MC she pays tribute to her home, reminding us of the importance of recognising our own self history: in order to move forward, we must stay grounded.
 
The track is as much a vision of the future as it is an ode to the past. Charity and acts of kindness begin at home, Lotos insists. To change the world, this is where we must start. Creating a party-ready track with meaning is no mean feat and serves as a reminder that this is just the beginning of a future the MC is ready to unpack.
