UK Hip Hop Artist Leon Anthony Debuts 'Growing Up' For Sow A Seed Charity

Nov 17 2015

Emerging UK Hip Hop artist, youth worker and Thornton Heath native Leon Anthony is debuting his brand new single 'Growing Up', featuring East London rapper A Star, on 20th November.

Proceeds from the single are going to international charity Sow A Seed, in aid of underprivileged young people in the UK and abandoned children in Africa.

Produced by Geeda Beatz, who has previously worked for Grammy Award winning rapper Lecrae, ThisL and Derek Minor among others, ‘Growing Up’ is a gritty, raw and uncompromising record, which sees Leon Anthony delivering an insightful, thought-provoking social commentary on inner city London youth culture, with strong support from A Star, who also delivers a compelling narrative.

On ‘Growing Up’, Leon tackles heavy issues surrounding growing up in London, life and death, spirituality and community, while striking a perfect balance between delivering a strong message and creating an infectious Hip Hop record. From its catchy chorus and piercing instrumentation, to the quick fire flow and commanding delivery from Leon and A Star, ‘Growing Up’ is a massive debut from Leon Anthony.

Speaking about the new singe, Leon states, "’Growing Up’ is to engage the youth of today and to raise funds for abandoned children in Africa. I did not have the best start in life as my best friend was murdered when I was just 16 years old. Whilst this was a traumatic experience for me, God has been able to help me overcome many obstacles like this one, motivating me to make an impact on the lives of others through music".

Leon Anthony UK Show Dates:
November 20 - Norbury, London
December 5 - Thornton Heath, Surrey
December 11 - Penge, London
