Brixton-based artist BUSHROD has a polished style of hip hop that feels relaxed and smooth, all the while contrasting against sharp lyricism that tells of emotions and stories vividly.
‘Doing OK’ tells of how the pandemic led to BUSHROD losing his day job. While this would obviously affect anyone, he carried on and did the British thing of acting as though it was still fine.
“In a way I was trying to keep up appearances and putting on a ‘poker face’, because I was scared that people would judge me for not working or doing much with myself during lockdown. Me releasing this song is kind of a ‘f**k you’ to self-doubt and almost getting my own back on my old workplace for cutting me off, and showing people that I now actually am doing bigger and better things.”
