Over the years, the UK music scene has exploded with international talents like Adele, Ed Sheeran, and Coldplay taking over the airwaves. It’s a dynamic industry with new and fresh artists announcing their presence in the game. However, one of the key highlights to draw from these talents is their originality and authenticity.
Ben Sharp Knowles, aka BSK, is an innately gifted hip-hop artist to watch out for in the coming years. The young UK-based rapper stands out with his authentic music style, capturing the emotions of thousands across the country. “I sing to release my emotions, and I am sure many people my age can relate to the words,” says BSK
Since making his professional debut, BSK has released numerous hits, including his recent album, The Mind of BSK, which he terms a collection of musical gems. He is also building a solid fan base with his music amassing hundreds of thousands of streams across various platforms. The trailblazing artist has also performed on various stages, including at open mic events, and he believes this is just the beginning of what lies ahead.

Challenges and other adversities can easily knock you off balance, causing you to lose your path. But you can easily overcome these hurdles by focusing on your craft and learning from past mistakes. Though still in the early stages of his career, BSK has faced numerous challenges, but no matter how tough it got, he has never given up.
One of his most significant challenges is battling dyslexia, but he has never allowed this to stop him from pursuing his passion. “I am dyslexic, but when it comes to making music, it is something I enjoy, and I feel I excel in, and it has really helped with my dyslexia. I enjoy being creative,” explains BSK
Because of this, BSK says to never give up on your dreams. He also believes in the power of finding happiness in whatever you do, as that’s the key to life and longevity. Remember, you have to go through tough and trying times to appreciate the good times. BSK also encourages young people to invest in building a network and partnerships that will push them to become better at whatever they choose to do. To him, building a thriving career can be a tough course to pursue, hence the need to surround yourself with other positive, like-minded people.
Driven by the desire to scale and become one of the greatest talents in the UK, BSK envisions himself expanding his influence beyond England’s borders. He is also working hard to create more dynamic and inspirational music to inspire different people. To BSK, the goal is to create a solid, loyal fan base and continue serving it great music they can relate to. Music remains a powerful tool that knows no boundaries, and he wants to leverage this power to share his happiness. “My dream is to be healthy and happy and complete with the choices I have made,” says BSK.
