The Dublin date comes after the release of his debut album Universal Credit.
East London rapper Jeshi‘s twisting journey towards his first album came to its crescendo in late May when he followed up singles like ‘Protein’ and ‘3210′ with the full release of Universal Credit. The rapper worked with the likes of Obongjayar and Fredwave across the record and made good on the promise shown on his first two EPs and collaborations with Vegyn and Celeste.
Now, he’s taking the album experience on the road. Joined by lowkicks, Jeshi has revealed a headline date in the Workman’s Club next month on September 21.
Speaking on his album, Jeshi says: “I’ve just reached a point in my life where I’m not interested in pretending to be anything that I’m not… The only thing I can be the best at is being a 100% true version of myself. I wrote the majority of this album broke and having nothing to look forward to. It gave me something to look forward to, a place to direct my frustrations at my life not being where I wanted it to be. I’m not interested in quick affirmations. I wanted to make something that will last and that people will really connect with. I can’t do that while holding anything back.”
Jeshi headlines The Workman’s Club with lowkick on 21 September 2022. Tickets start at 18 euro including booking fee and go on sale Thursday 11 August.
