Rapper K Koke (real name Kevin Georgiou) has revealed via Twitter to his thousands of followers that his business relationship with RCA has come to an abrupt end.
Last night Koke tweeted:
All this is more stress than its worth I was happier selling drugs.
I aint no role model the police made that very clear
I’ve been battling since I signed my deal.
Jail 4 no reason, beat downs 4 no reason, they stop shows, they stop Wireless, nick man 4 no reason, man can’t win.
I was supposed 2 perform at Wireless stage 2 a day b4 #mytime dropped same day as Jay z, Rita (Ora) …all that big promo and look what they did.
No more RCA so probably no more ROC NATION, no more management so probably back 2 roads 4 me.
Then today he tweeted:
Lol 4 the record ROC still wanna f*k wid man it’s RCA who pulled out #fortherecord
RCA are not a very good label anyway I’ am confident enuff in my self my music an my fans I could have a situation tomorrow #fortherecord
I had a little out burst yesterday cah mans tired of the bullsh*t but I am uk.hiphop I am the truth there ain’t a rapper that can chat 2 me.
An also #fortherecord man can go bk 2 the roads, the door will always b open 4 me in Stonebridge real brudda sh*t really bout that life.
Also one last time #fortherecord I’m the realist ting from out this bullsh*t country it’s problems when #iaintperfect drops #letthemusictalk
I’m suing the rasclart police as well #wat
In response to K Koke’s anger towards the police shutting down his shows etc, So Solid star Megaman rightfully points out the following:
So Solid have been going through this for over a DECADE.
However… mark my words folks K Koke will be fine.
Anyway even Stevie Wonder saw this coming. Major label’s sign these UK “URBAN” acts but have no real plan of action when it comes to promoting/marketing these acts. Then within two years it’s announced by the artist on Twitter (because it all goes down on Twitter) that they have ‘left’ the label.
On most occasions though this type of situation only ever seems to occur when the “URBAN” artist is black.
But still, I never quite understood the thinking behind signing him. What was RCA hoping to do here? What was the plan? And I don’t understand what ROC Nation’s plan is, if it is true that they still intend on working with him.
Well at least Koke still has his MOBO nomination for ‘Best Hip Hop/Grime’ artist. So there is light at the end of the tunnel.

I’m harsh? Everyone knows how these major labels move especially when it comes to UK “URBAN” acts. Several years back they were signing loads of acts, but now the majority of those acts who were signed have been dropped. I saw this coming for some time.
He doesn’t deserve any future success if that’s his mentality and work ethic. He’s not the first rapper to be targeted by the police, done jail time or sold drugs. Let him go back to a life of wotlessness, he won’t be missed.
Why does he talk of going back to his old way. Isn’t he Greek Cypriot? Surely he has family members who own businesses all over London. Why doesn’t he go and help one of his uncle’s to run the family business instead of acting like he doesn’t have options.
@Minx – as K Koke would say – “jus cah man’s a Greek brudda don’t mean man’s uncle run kebab shop an ting. Rasclart”
I’m glad Megaman told him about himself. I read it thinking he was going to be on the ‘stand by your white brotha man from endz’ which a lot of these fools are usually on.
White boy acting like he’s an oppressed black man right down to the chat. These fools have some serious identity issues.
I am not complaining here, not even feeling a thing for so solid.
I can see so solid revamped their image and put children in their videos to clean their mess and image, get them interested in their videos.
When K koke calms down, and realises that that ghetto mess and fantasy talk and act he has managed to convince himself into is and always is a lie created by American artists to sell a false image to youngins, then he will wake up and clean his act too. Until then, there’s nothing much anybody can do.
Yeah, go out and sell drugs like Jay z. Idiot.
Meanwhile Jay z spends his time yachting with his beautiful wife and mega star millionaire wife and child.
You gon live and die on the streets. Snap out of it child.
Koke is Caucasian artist so all he needs to do is just clean up his act slightly, change the company he keeps, stop trying to act like he’s just arrived from Down town Kingston (“cah”… “Rassclart” – Just STOP) and all will be well and forgotten in due course.
He needs to start rolling with his own and all will be white, clean and clear. Ha
Look at what he can get away with saying on a public forum like Twitter.
“All this is more stress than its worth I was happier selling drugs.”
“An also #fortherecord man can go bk 2 the roads, the door will always b open 4 me in Stonebridge real brudda sh*t really bout that life.”
A friend of mine just pointed out that if rapper Giggs or Megaman tweeted that nonsense before you know it Operation Trident would be on their door steps kicking their doors down.
And it’s true.
If he is not a role model to anybody else and doesn’t want to be too, he might want to start thinking of being a role model to himself. You cannot have a huge following of fans with whom you interact and influence with your music and say you are not a role model. That is another way of opting out of any sense of responsibility, which seems to be the trend amongst the younger artists who do not want to be held responsible and only want to make money off of any image just because they can. I recall jay z having the exact same mentality as koke. If you want to stay with your mind, listening to jay z and following his every move and taking it all in, is the last thing you want to do. All those roadman antics will land you in hot coal. Whereby you will come out with third degree burns.
Wannabe gangsters. Kmt. If it was some other rapper who was being marginalized for no god damn reason but race only, I would say okay, but this, I have my reservations.
Koke really needs to stop peddling ‘cah man’s from Stonebridge’ antics and this warped stereotypical idea of what he thinks being a black male is all about.
So you deal with him co-opting the oppression that black males face, by talking some stereotypical mess yourself?
Although I’m sure he has face BS from the police, agree with everything else said in these comments tbh.
@Fire So pointing out that the Greek Cypriot community are generally successful business people is a “stereotypical mess” a bad thing? Is that worse then this stereotypical mess that all black men are all criminals and so on?
everyone hating on koke for what? yeah he aint the only rapper that police are harassing and that but he can only go on what hes living through right now. so what if others have been through it? hes going through it now and hes just stating what hes going through.
All you ignorant fools need to stop cussing the guy not many UK rappers are as talented as him, so what he raps about how he’s living, better than most of these fake signed rappers who just chat lie after lie. You dont know how he’s lived so U have no right to pass judgement on his lyrical content. Least his done something for himself and I hate those racist comments posted here about how he speak…so what? Get some culture you prejudice fools!
Thanks for stopping by Koke. Appreciate it.
