We caught up with the exciting new artist to find out a little bit more about him and his music...

We were lucky enough to catch up with the rising star this week.
Check it out below...
1) For those who don’t know about you and your music, tell us a little bit about who you are and where you’re from…
I’m a music artist from Birmingham. I rap about the things I’ve been through and situations I’ve lived.
2) Describe your sound in three words…
Real, raw, rap.
3) Who inspired you to start a career in music?
When I was in prison I was asked who I am. I never really knew who I was or who I was going to be. I started writing and realised I needed to get what was in my mind down on paper. That’s what inspired me, it was that question.
4) Who are your biggest musical influences?
5) Tell us about the writing and recording process for your new music...
It was a long process filled with sleepless nights. Me and the producers would sleep in the studio making music all night waiting till we had that perfect record. As I said before I just write about the things I know and what I’ve lived.
6) What can we expect from your live shows?
Big production, crazy mosh pits and mad energy on stage.
7) What has been your biggest career highlight so far?
Performing at Glastonbury.
8) Have you met anyone and been totally starstruck?
Not yet, but who knows I meet people all the time. Maybe that will happen one day.
9) What’s on your iPod/playlists that people wouldn’t expect?
I like chilled music I really like Sampha and his sound. Maybe people wouldn’t expect that.
10) When can we see you live?
At my upcoming nationwide tour in March and most of the UK festivals over Summer.
