My brother put me on some of my favourite rappers from quite young. I started just wanting to build a community with some friends to rap with on the estate, youth clubs kept me away from trouble I was getting myself into being a little menace. Myself and Butch linked up in High School and just kept going, he was the only person other than myself than believed we can do this as a career. It became my second nature, it’s all I know tbh. its all I want to do. Music moves me, It’s truly my dearly beloved.

The beat always comes first for me, I need to feel the vibe and try to capture the correct emotion. When those things are set it’s choosing the concept. I always split a 16 bar in 4s, when I write the first 4 bars the next 4 bars have to come harder.
