BIG MOVES

in 2020

Thank you for being part of our zine.  Tell us more about your beginnings in
the industry!


I started off as a grime MC, going to pirate radio sets, and clashing other MCs from
other schools and boroughs. Later started mixing into other genres and became a
well-rounded artist.

Where are you located now and where are you originally from? 

I’m from South West London, born and raised. 

Goals for 2020 and beyond?

Chart success, success not just in the UK but overseas, and all in all world domination. 

What have been the specific challenges in your career so far?  What have been the greatest achievements so far? 

Poor management, my inconsistency in terms of releasing music due to personal life matters and issues with my health. 
Some of my greatest achievements are opening for Snoop Dogg, French Montana, Little Simz ; OG Maco. A highlight was also being one of the first artists to ever sign to GRM Records. 

Where can our readers catch up with you out there soon? 

I’m pretty open on my social media, i regularly post enough information for supporters to keep up to date. 


Please answer the following:  If my fans really knew me, they would know that..

I love Chinese food more than I love 98% of what the world has to offer me. 

Who are your top inspirations? 

My daughter, my mother, my struggles & my (rapper) friend Cadet who passed away last year.

 

Having accomplished so much in your career, are there more dreams you hope to conquer?

I haven’t even started yet, but I hope to become one of the UK’s top rap artists it’s seen.

 

Any words of wisdom for your fans out there? 

Stay consistent whilst chasing whatever dream you have. Don’t take advice from everyone if you trust in yourself then trust in your process and focus. Don’t watch what others do have tunnel vision.
