CanaryPod: Topple Uncaged meets… Lowkey
Welcome to #ToppleUncaged!
Every week, The Canary will be bringing you a new podcast on the media landscape; hosted by me, Steve Topple.
In a special episode, I spoke with multi-talented musician and activist Lowkey. Soundtrack to the Struggle 2 marks the critically acclaimed artist’s first full album release since 2011. Lowkey is also currently in the midst of a tour. So, I caught up with him in a wide-ranging interview. We chatted about the political and social content of the album, his journey since 2011, Grenfell and more.

We know everyone is suffering under the Tories - but the Canary is a vital weapon in our fight back, and we need your support
The Canary Workers’ Co-op knows life is hard. The Tories are waging a class war against us we’re all having to fight. But like trade unions and community organising, truly independent working-class media is a vital weapon in our armoury.
The Canary doesn’t have the budget of the corporate media. In fact, our income is over 1,000 times less than the Guardian’s. What we do have is a radical agenda that disrupts power and amplifies marginalised communities. But we can only do this with our readers’ support.
So please, help us continue to spread messages of resistance and hope. Even the smallest donation would mean the world to us.
