Welcome to series two of #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 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.

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.
