Originally from London, UK, LTtheMonk first fell in love with hip-hop at just eight years old, when the music captivated his young ears and ignited what would become a lifelong passion. With a name that announces his meditative dedication to his craft, the artist describes himself as ‘London Made, East-Coast Trained’, a tribute to both his home city and the New York MCs who inspired him. Shaped by the influence of early-’90s genre touchstones and a relocation to Hamilton, Ontario, 2019’s Kinks, Drinks & Hip-Hop charted his rise as diligent lyricist, cultural critic, and thoughtful historian. The album also established LT’s credentials as a charismatic live performer, with tour dates finding him backed by his band, a trio of jazz players (keyboardist Santiago Rozo-Paz, bassist Cam Watson, drummer Lucas Hibbs).
