Tubbz – Grime kid [Interview]

Describe your sound in 3 words

My sound is Emotional, Grimey and Thoughtful

How many beats do you listen to before you end up using one? Tell us a few things about your creative process.

To be totally honest it has become very hard to get beats due to the pandemic, you can no longer be in the studio with a producer whenever you want. So these days I buy a clutch of beats based on one that I want and go from there.

Which is your most personal and honest lyric?

In one of my singles called ‘The Bag’ I get into how irratic life is although everyone paints a nice picture – “I’ve got a craving for p’s, im feeling it everytime I lace up my feet, 12 hour shifts 12 days that’s hustling, home lifes mad now im juggling, martel guzzling” this bar is explaining the irony behind life where we all have a crazy drive to make money but even when u do your personal life becomes undesireable. If you listen to other rappers they will make out like life is great when you work non stop.

Do you think there is a true underground hip hop sound today?

yes definitely, personally I’m still dodging around making “mainstream” music because it all sounds similar. I like to stand out and be me which I think you will only see in the underground scene.

What does hip hop symbolize in your opinion?

Hiphop to me is free expression, art and poetry. One of my favorite things when writing is to purposely write bars that go over people’s head in hopes that every play shows the song slightly differently.

When not writing music, how do you spend your time?

I try to stay active and do alot of things with my family in my spare time as I have a 2 year old daughter. I’m a big fan of combat sports and tune in every sat, and physically I like to skate and play basketball.

What would you say is your biggest vice?

My biggest vice is money just like 90% of people in this world. If only I had someone to fund my music alone I could take it to another level but unfortunately life nowadays is all about bills and it puts a stress on the music

Thank you!
