Coupe – Lord from the Neen
His friends use to call him Mini Cooper when he was in Primary school cause he use to be really short but that turned into Coupe after he got older.
Coupes music is influenced by both old and new artists from the ASAP Rockys to
Mos Def and Pharrell as he tries to mash up Hip Hop RNB and rock to give it an edge. Coupe describes his music as melodies of the soul.
” I’d like to compare my music to Jean Michel Basquiats paintings . Like what
you see is what you get , different expressions mashed up to create an
Image – all the mistakes and outlines included ” – said Coupe
Lately the young sensation has been falling in love with visuals and fine art (which is
something he is looking at studying ) after turning his street wear brand ”
Street Ego” into a creative house called “Two Door Create” which is focused
on taking small concepts and expanding on them.
The first project Coupe has dropped is a 4 track EP Titled LORD which is
inspired by a movie called ” The education of Sonny Carson”. He made a lot
of references to the movie so the project can have a certain direction and
theme .The art work is a screen shot from the movie that was
tweaked by Coupe and his creative team to make it more appealing to the eye.
Most of the songs are sampled from the Soundtrack of the movie and also
included skits from the movie too add to the whole concept . Even the
titles of the the songs like Lords way , Mamacita and Virginia are all
refereced from the movie The Education of Sonny Carson ( 1974 )
