Welcome to series two of #ToppleUncaged!
Every week, The Canary will be bringing you an innovative podcast for the media landscape; hosted by me, Steve Topple. I’ll be giving you the hottest, most relevant political takes. Then I’ll mix it up with some of the freshest, most banging music around.
My guest on this special episode is no exception to either of those rules, with his groundbreaking record label Defenders Entertainment.
Mr Topple x Corey Johnson
Corey Johnson is a businessman, musician, charity founder and boss of several companies. This includes the record label Defenders Entertainment. Its approach of promoting new, undiscovered young musicians has earned it respect in the UK music scene. It has also scored it some very talented artists.
So, I caught up with Johnson for the #ToppleUncaged podcast at the Defenders Ent studio in south London. We discussed his background, the stigma surrounding BAME music (drill in particular), the current state of the music industry and his hopes for the future.
