Capo Lee About

Previously a garage and funky house DJ and later a hip hop MC under the name of Leeman (check out his 2011 mixtape Pedal Bike Muzik), Capo Lee established a name for himself as a grime MC with the underground hits “Liff” (2015) and “Mud” (2016).

Capo is known for keeping it real; subject matter in his lyrics varies from jail time to lactose intolerance. In 2015, he teamed up with veteran producer Spooky Bizzle to release Welcome to Clartsville, a six-track venture over Spooky instrumentals old and new.

On Christmas Day 2015, for friendly competition, So Large released “Shots”, a war dub aimed at Capo. He replied with “Funeral Parlor”, a send which is widely regarded to have won Capo the war. So Large, however, did release a second diss: “Tipex”. This war, which stemmed from Rude Kid’s 2015 Christmas grime set, was reignited in December 2016 on Rude Kid’s Kiss Grime show. The two MCs went bar-for-bar, reciting some of the old lyrics and reliving the experience.

In 2016, he released two mixtapes entitled Why Not? and Why Not? Part Two in collaboration with Red Bull Studios. Each mixtape was created from scratch in one ten-hour-long studio session, with the help of regular collaborators such as Blay, Nico Lindsay, Rocks FOE and YGG.

In 2017, he signed to BBC presenter Sian Anderson’s new label SighTracked, and released two EPs—Stop Talk (with Sir Spyro) and Capo the Champ—through them. The year has been a prolific one for Capo, and has also seen him release the non-album singles “Gyal From Brum” with SafOne and “Mula” with P Money.
