“I Can Speak Spanish” is certified ear porn and set to be stuck in your head long after listening. As catchy as it is poignant, the single sees Jimothy taking his unique sound and lyricism into a new realm and one which undoubtedly sets him up for a plethora of future hits.

In the wake of his last single “Subway System”, which saw Jimothy Lacoste being called to remove his video by British Transport Police, Jimothy, (also known as Timmy) is currently the name on everyone’s lips. With his unique rap-style and incredible viral visuals, Jimothy is representing for Camden Town and speaks openly and honestly about his experiences and thoughts on the London environment around him.

Jimothy’s music makes you think – “Subway” System” for example, sees the young rapper/singer speaking on the fast-paced London Underground, angry businessmen, and commute madness: “Social anxiety, man that needs to die. Die out and dry out but it’s a London thing – why? When I go abroad, everyone says hi…”

With a back catalogue of tracks already available online, fan favourites have generated in the form of “Getting Busy” and “Future Bae”; but all of JImothy’s music has been quietly building hundreds of thousands of

views, and earning him the support of Dazed and Confused, i-D Magazine, Noisey, Time Out, Burberry, Giggs, Hypebeast, DJ Semtex, MistaJam and more – all before his first official release.

A visual artist, Jimothy’s videos are a cinematic experience, seeing him hanging off the Hammersmith and City Line, dancing on a podium on the Southbank, running down fire exit stairwells in the nude, and climbing lamp posts.
