Krafty is a British rapper and producer based in the South East of England.
Having spent his teenage years studying the likes of Big L, Eminem and Redman, Krafty has developed his own distinct style combining cheeky punchlines and melodic choruses over dope hip-hop beats.
At age 12, Krafty was booking studio time and cutting demos at Back Alley Studios in Maidstone. When he wasn't at the studio, he was practising his rhymes on a karaoke machine in his bedroom. This initiative eventually led him to buying his own studio equipment and turning his room into his own make-shift recording booth.
From topping the U.K. SoundClick Charts to being ranked #1 in Kent's Hip-Hop scene according to Reverb Nation, the rapper-producer has more than proven his worth in the underground hip-hop scene.
In 2018, Krafty made the decision to become more hands on with his music by dedicating a year to learning more about music production. The results of which can be heard on 2019’s album Show Must Go On with the songs Brainwashed and Coulda Remix (the latter featuring long-time collaborator and cousin JackPot).
After relying on the talents of producers Sinima, Oskar Mike and several others over the years, Krafty decided the only way to go further in his career was by producing everything himself. With this initiative, he began work on his fifth studio album Kingpin and Artificial Nature, respectively.
INDEPENDENT RECORD LABEL
Since 2014, Krafty has been releasing music under his own independent record label, Monumental Records.
"Nobody wanted to sign me, so I signed myself."
Mid-way through 2019, Monumental Records opened its doors to other underground artists. After a stream of independent releases from artists under Monumental, the label closed its doors again officially in 2021 with the focus to go back to Krafty’s solo music and the clothing brand Monumental Inc.
