Koke, is an English rapper of Greek Cypriot descent from Stonebridge, North West London, He is best known for his Fire in the Booth freestyle on Charlie Sloth's show on BBC Radio 1Xtra, which has accumulated over 12 million YouTube views.
Koke is part of UK rap crew USG.
At the time of signing to Roc Nation, Koke was preparing to release Pure Koke Volume Two. He released visuals for singles "Nobody But Us", "Lord Knows" and "Streets Are Cold", the latter of which features Birmingham's Malik MD7. Koke's music career was stopped abruptly as he was arrested for attempted murder. This meant Pure Koke: Volume 2 was released with very little promotion due to K Koke's absence.
Koke was later dropped from Roc Nation and in 2015 signed with Universal Music.
