The Lawyer Listens

With the majority of the legal market working from home, The Lawyer is curating a playlist of songs to listen to while working from the living room or kitchen.

Pass Me By, by Kwoli Black

Originally hailing from Hackney, Kwoli Black exists as more than another black rapper. A young man with big dreams and a big heart, Kwoli’s music reflects his reality and his truth. Dubbed “pretty music”, Pass me by was released last year and shows the young rappers talent.

The song smooth instrumentals produced by JSTRINGS instrumentals with smooth lyrics backed up by Jessica on vocals. The youngster has the world at his feat and if he keeps producing music like he is at the month, he will no doubt walk in the footsteps of the likes of Loyle Carner, Tyler the Creator and Kojey Radical – all of whom he idolises. –Amar Mehta

Video of the day

What we want are individual, personal contributions from lawyers and legal sector professionals working from home. You could be demonstrating a recipe, videoing your daily run, telling a joke, singing us a song, showing off a skill, or just telling us about your day and what you’ve been up to. We are very open to creativity – anything that uplifts or diverts.

What we don’t want is too many firm-branded videos talking about how seamlessly you have transitioned to a new way of working, please.
