|Describe yourself using a lyric from a song/rap.
I’m the furthest thing from perfect, but I do know what my worth is, wouldn’t sell myself below, even if you made a mass-purchase.How did you get your start in music?
I started off with poetry in my young years….but rapping – I started when I was about 14, got more serious with 16, after a month of artist development in Miami. Basically, a relative in Atlanta had heard my music I had uploaded to youtube and sent it around in the states and suddenly I get an email from a producer/songwriter: Blizzy Baxter. He then mentored me a lot during that time. Upon return I started taking the whole rapping more seriously and realized that no mater where I came from, if I worked hard enough, the right people would hear my music through the internet. I saw that it doesn’t matter where I come from, as long as I head in the right direction, I’ll get where I want to go/where I’m supposed to be. We are connected and alike seek each-other – the fact that I am saying this and you are reading this and may be on the other side of the earth – in that lays our generation’s power.Best gig you’ve ever done/been to?
I’d say Ghetts was the most amazing Gig I’ve ever been to. I believe many people, especially outside of the UK don’t understand Grime, because they’ve never seen/heard it live. The energy is unreal. I think the best way for Grime to become more international is through live shows, I’ve never been to a concert with that much energy and crowd interaction. I must say I didn’t really get Grime at first when I came to the UK. But Ghetts show was like an epiphany for me.
Have you got any exciting projects coming up?
I just graduated from university a few days ago. So now that the degree is out the way, as I had promised my parents, I can focus on doing music -however, I did enjoy studying at the end. Studying business enterprise taught me a lot about how to run and start my own company (record label). So now I just want to get fully dedicated in exploring the music scene here, collaborating, producing with people and releasing my first EP/Mixtape.
Favourite holiday destination?
Favourite spot in London?
I however do love Camden, especially the market, as well as Brixton. Both areas are mad creative and great sources of inspiration and creativity. Also a lot of entrepreneurship and diversity of cultures there. Also, when it comes to architecture, Canary Wharf is great, it has a feeling like Coruscant in StarWars (but thats again the Nerd in me).
