In a special episode, I caught up with UK rapper Anon the Artist. Originally from Sidcup but raised in Croydon, Anon uses his music to tackle political and social issues head-on. Having been rapping and writing lyrics from a young age, he’s recently come into his own with his latest two, stunning tracks: Medicated and Medicated (Part Two), which deal with mental health from a very real and raw angle.

So, I caught up with him for the #ToppleUncaged podcast. We chatted about his musical background, battling mental health, the state of UK grime and drill music and more.

Enjoy!
