Dappy: "I'm Putting The Bad Stuff Behind Me..."
The N-Dubz star claims that he wants to just make good music...
N-Dubz star Dappy claims that he regrets all the trouble he's been in so far and he hopes that fatherhood will change him for the better.
The 22-year-old London rapper/singer has recently been in the headlines for taking meow meow (Methadrone) and has also gotten into a few fights along the way, but now the hit-maker wants to change his lifestyle for his children and wants to be recognised for his music and nothing else.
He told New Magazine: "I have regrets, but I'm putting the bad stuff behind me and I think I'm coming out a better person. I know violence isn't good for you. Education and being a rapper and a singer is good. Anything you want to do in life, you can do it. Drugs, guns, knives - stay away from it. I'm not who I am now through that - it's through my talent."
Dappy currently has a 15-month old son called Gino with his pregnant ex-girlfriend Kaye Vassell.
"Me and Kaye are together. We argue a lot but I love her very much. She puts me in my place and she's just very real with me. Obviously, I've made mistakes and gone with other girls, but Kaye is number one to me. I'm a cool dad. I'm a rapper, singer, wow! It's cool.
"Gino is going to have an upbringing that I never had. I had a lot of warmth and love, but we weren't rich. And I grew up in a very negative environment. So I'm going to give him the warmth from my family but I'm also going to make sure that he has a castle to play in with a big slide. And he'll stay grounded!"
