Jimothy Lacoste Live at Terrible Baby Wednesday 15th May
Hong Kong Debut Show. Tickets on sale now
Timothy Gonzales aka Jimothy Lacoste is a rapper from North London. With his low-budget videos, unique style, positive vibes and amazing dance moves, his fan base just keeps on growing. In 2016 Lacoste started posting songs online, but with the song ‘Getting Busy!’ he went from Soundcloud rapper to internet sensation. After this more hits followed such as ‘FUTURE BAE’ and ‘DRUGS’. With co-signs from fellow rappers from England such as Giggs, we already know this is going to be a show that you don’t want to miss!
Jimothy’s music has tinges of Mike Skinner and draws accidental parallels to fellow north London dance-grime-electro collective Man Like Me, but his musical lineage seems more informed by an internal struggle with adolescent boredom and filling a void for the shy and insecure. In a world of constant bombardment of ‘new, hot’ 18-year-olds, Jimothy’s approach is more mature and considered, shying away from ‘living for the likes’. His lyrics and music have a more Tony Robbins feel while being framed in the backdrop of grime 2.0 and the new industry of UK road rap. Jimothy has had co-signs from the likes of Hypebeast (10 UK Rappers to Watch), Dazed (Top 20 Tracks of 2017) and Giggs. Coming to Hong Kong first time, life is getting quite exciting for Jimothy and all the fans who turn out to see him perform.
