When did you know you wanted to pursue a career in music?
I’ve always had a love for music especially growing up in a Caribbean household and my dad being a DJ, then doing music in school and also grew up listening to pirate radio stations, you know if you went to school in the UK then you are practically a secondary school MC with a crew hahaha. It was in secondary school that I had found my passion for producing beats and it really drove me to become a producer. After becoming a producer and creating beats for a few well-known artists, I decided to stretch my creativity and become an artist myself.
Who or what is your biggest source of inspiration?
Firstly my kids are my biggest inspirations but in terms of music my inspiration would definitely be Jay-Z and P.Diddy. I admire their strive towards being some of the greatest legends in the hip-hop world. From being some of the greatest music icons in the 90s and how much their influence has on the music we listen to today.
Where do you see yourself in two years time?
In the next two years, I see myself with a number 1 record in the UK, making myself known within the music industry, working and collaborating with other UK artists, just getting myself & music out there.
WHAT’S THE MOST SLEPT-ON ALBUM IN YOUR OPINION?
I WILL DEFINITELY SAY WSTRN’S LATEST MIXTAPE ‘WSTRN SEASON VOL 2’, EVERY SONG ON THAT MIXTAPE IS A BANGER AND I’M VERY SHOCKED IT WAS NOT IN THE UK CHARTS. THERE WAS A SONG FOR EVERYONE ON THAT MIXTAPE.
What is your favourite and least favourite aspect of the music industry?
My favourite part of the music industry is how much the UK music industry has grown and how popular and international UK artists are now becoming and integrating and working together. I love how digital and new-age the music industry is and it’s available to everyone, every age and on every platform so your music can reach everyone worldwide
My least favourite part of the industry is how people take social media following as a form of power and position, for example, if you don’t have more than 10K followers on Instagram no one wants to work with you or if you’re not trending or current some of the top ones in the industry would not recognise your talent or even give you an opportunity. So the industry is becoming more about popularity as opposed to actual talent
If you could collaborate with anyone, who would it be and why?
I would love to collaborate which Stormzy or Dave, I love how passionate they are for music, I love how vocal they are about current issues that affect us as young people in the UK, and their just great artists in general. I would also love to collaborate with WSTRN, that group has amazing hooks and their music always creates that good vibe. I feel like our sounds will blend well together.
If you could get one message across to your followers, what would it be?
I will definitely tell my followers to “don’t stop dreaming”, as I believe you can achieve anything you put your mind too, you just have to be patient and put in the grind in as long as you have a passion for it don’t be afraid to believe in yourself.
