Slowthai Tour Overview

Tyron Kaymone Frampton (born 18 December 1994), better known by his stage name Slowthai (stylised in lowercase), is a British rapper. Raised in Northampton, he rose to popularity in 2019 for his gritty and rough instrumentals and raw, politically charged lyrics, especially around Brexit and Theresa May's tenure as British prime minister. Slowthai placed fourth in the BBC Sound of 2019 and followed up in the same year with his debut studio album, Nothing Great About Britain. The album was nominated for the Mercury Prize; at Slowthai's 2019 Mercury Prize ceremony performance, he held a fake severed head of British prime minister Boris Johnson on stage, prompting controversy.

Tyron Kaymone Frampton was born on 18 December 1994 in Northampton to Gaynor, a teenage mother who is half Barbadian. Frampton, his sister, and his brother were raised by their single mother in a council estate in the Lings area of Northampton. His younger brother Michael died shortly after his first birthday, which greatly affected Frampton. Frampton attended Northampton Academy and in 2011 attended Northampton College, where he studied for a BTEC in Music Technology. Frampton has ADHD and frequently skipped school during his years at Northampton Academy, often spending time at a nearby underground "recording studio" at his friend's house, only stopping when his mother was forced to attend a compulsory court hearing. After college, Frampton had multiple short stints in employment, working as a labourer, a plasterer, and at a branch of Next before being fired for breach of contract after he gave his friend employee discounts.

About Slowthai

The name Slowthai originates from his childhood nickname given to him due to his slow speech and drawled tone: "slow ty". In 2016, he released his break-out single, "Jiggle", produced by Sammy Byrne.

In 2017, Slowthai partnered up with indie record label Bone Soda to release his I Wish I Knew EP, "Murder" and "T n Biscuits". Later in the same year, Slowthai signed his recording contract with Method Records and since has released his Runt EP and debut studio album, Nothing Great About Britain, which peaked at number 9 on the Official Charts on the week of release.

In addition to being included in the BBC's Sound of 2019 poll and NME's NME 100 list, Slowthai as well received acclaim from publications such as DIY, Vevo and Metro. Alongside that, his debut album was shortlisted for a Mercury Music Prize, losing to Dave's Psychodrama.

Slowthai contributed additional, uncredited vocals on the song "What's Good" from Tyler, the Creator's album Igor. He is also featured on "Heaven Belongs to You" from Brockhampton's album Ginger and later joined their HBTY North American tour in 2019 as the special guest.
