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 need your help ...
The coronavirus pandemic is changing our world, fast. And we will do all we can to keep bringing you news and analysis throughout. But we are worried about maintaining enough income to pay our staff and minimal overheads.
Now, more than ever, we need a vibrant, independent media that holds the government to account and calls it out when it puts vested economic interests above human lives. We need a media that shows solidarity with the people most affected by the crisis – and one that can help to build a world based on collaboration and compassion.
We have been fighting against an establishment that is trying to shut us down. And like most independent media, we don’t have the deep pockets of investors to call on to bail us out.
