About One Acen

English rapper One Acen offered a counterpoint to the U.K.'s grime scene and prevalent Afrobeat influences with more of a hip-hop- and R&B-influenced style, as illustrated by his 2018 single "Verified." Born in Tottenham, London in 1991, he began rapping at the age of 13 and by 2015, he had started to put out singles over internet platforms, but it was his collaboration with Hardy Caprio on the single "Unsigned" that really kickstarted his career. He followed that track up with two further singles, "Verified" and the WSTRN-featuring "Vice Versa," before reuniting with Caprio for 2018's "EIO." Bekki Bemrose
