Describe your sound in three words
Raw intriguing chilled
Tell us a few things about your new song “Beauty Queen”
I wanted to try something different when I wrote this song. I wanted a different sound, something refreshing for a change. The song is about having that perfect woman, because in real life there’s no such thing. But we can all dream right? I wanted a song to build a women up not put them down so I kept that in mind when putting Beauty Queen together.
I had the perfect time to get on with it because I made this song during lockdown..so I had plenty of time to focus.
Why does hip hop today have so many negative stereotypes? For example why hiphop put women in a position of submission?
I believe it’s because of social media! All you have to do is go on Instagram and see what’s happening. A lot of artists are pretending to be someone there not. It’s all about money, fast cars, women wearing next to nothing, to me it’s all about bragging rights.
This now trickles down to the youth and it’s plain to see. Kids don’t act like kids they act like adults. To me hip hop has become an image, when it use to be about your true identity. Upbringing and struggles etc. I could on all day about this question you asked me.
“Beauty Queen” is not a sad song. Are you optimistic in general?
Yeah I am I guess, I just take every day as it comes because tomorrow could be your last we don’t understand how profound that saying is. I try my best nowadays not to let things get me down. And just focus on the things I can do to make myself happy in life. Everything starts with yourself, never forget that.
Which is your favorite hip hop album ever?
Skinnyman – council estate of mind! Blown away from when I first heard and even when I play it now

Any future plans?
Make more music! I’m working with a young talent hip hop producer and breakdancer. KUB you can find all his stuff on Spotify under that name, I’ve worked with him before. So I know this is gonna be good fun. I will also be working with Fidibeatz who again is a hip hop producer and a good friend you can also find his stuff on Spotify and YouTube under that name. Both lads have different sounds which is good.
