Unknown T Essentials

Hackney-born Daniel Lena, a.k.a. Unknown T, broke through in 2018 with “Homerton B”, a gritty, trap-style tribute to his East London turf. One of the leading players on the UK drill scene, the MC has had a controversial career. Lena was acquitted of a murder charge in 2020 and those experiences have played out in songs such as “Fresh Home”, an atmospheric track with a skittering groove about trying to return to normality after being locked up with lifers. On “WW2”, meanwhile, he brings a nimble flow and cutting wit to the everyday reality of gang life, with his sharp portrayal of beef between rival crews.
