GEKO

Manchester's Geko began rapping from the age of just eight. By the age of thirteen, he was signed to the UK music collective USG - home to fellow rap star K Koke - becoming the youngest member to join the popular group. The success of his debut single 'Heartless' was a major achievement for the youngster, who had gone from rapping in the playground to recording warm-up sessions with leading online youth broadcaster SB.TV and performing alongside Tinie Tempah and Big Sean. Yet despite being so young, Geko is inspired by the old skool. “I don't listen to new school rap, ever. I listen to UK rap sometimes, but I listen to straight old school rap like Ice Cube, Biggie, Tupac. That’s me.”
