Kenny Allstar Fronts New Four-Part BET UK Series 'Living Lyrics'

July 01, 2024

BET UK has released a new four-part docuseries called Living Lyrics. Fronted by the voice of the streets himself, Kenny Allstar, each weekly episode focuses on one of four artists—Ghetts, ENNY, MIST, and Headie One, unpacking their creative process and getting into the stories behind their music.

Each act has songs that resonate within and beyond the culture of Black music, and Living Lyrics uncovers the moments in the culture and the artist's personal lives that shaped their art.

Every episode, the selected act delivers two performances of their most powerful and memorable tracks—one in-studio and one acoustic version in a location of the artists choosing—before deep diving into the interview with Kenny AllStar.

With UK rap being such an important part of the British music scene, it's great to see coverage and analysis that goes beyond judging artists on their streaming numbers and chart position.

Check out the first three episodes of Living Lyrics on My5.
