Oracy, noun: the ability to express oneself fluently and grammatically in speech. I’m a rapper from Wolftown but i’m now getting my lioness on in the concrete jungle of London.
My primal desire to express myself, my life experiences, surroundings and the consequential feelings that follow. Great production often sparks ideas and influence’s the vibe or topic of each track.
Having Life MC feature on my debut album. It’s a great feeling to listen to Life MC’s verse in between my own. I’ve been listening to him since a tween.
Put in the legwork and don’t believe in false entitlement. Keep your circle genuine. Remember to keep it fun and understand that nobody will take your dreams as seriously as you do.
Chester P is one of the first UK rappers i ever heard. I loved his style and as I’ve matured I’ve grown to respect the man as well as his music. He’s still so essential and influential.
My next album Suttin Dubby will be dropping in the new year. It’s a different sound to my first release Foot In The Door. It covers the dub spectrum from reggae, dubstep, jungle to … ‘animal beat’ (which i just invented but i think it works!).
Another close call but i’d say, consistency wise, Falling Down by Jehst. I don’t think a week has passed in the last 15 years that i haven’t listened to at least one track off that album.
9) What’s the best concert you’ve ever been to? And where?
I’ve been to so many awesome and quirky events, boat, squat, block and free party’s but i have to big up Breakin Convention Park Jam, Spa Fields Park, London. A true hip hop day and essential annual event.
Love. Laughs. Libido
Loyle Carner. What movie best represents your sound and why?
A huge shout out to everyone that has been genuine and supporting me along the way. The scene is full of love and has definetely become my surrogate family. One Love!
