I hate writing cliché bars and when you have a wider vocabulary it is easier to write meaningful lyrics."

What are your origins?

Dad's from Barbados and my Mum's from England

 

What is one word that comes to mind when you think about where you are originally from?

Home

 

You’re only 16! How did you find yourself in the studio at such a young age?

I’ve loved music from young and had links to studios due to family, so I guess I just got lucky in that sense. I first recorded a track in a studio when I was 13.

 

Did you ever rap for your friends coming up?

Yes always, even before I knew I could rap well me and my friends would freestyle at school for fun.

 

Your biggest song so far is Elementary and you speak on music coming effortlessly to you, what part of your skillset do you work on the most?

 

Probably my vocabulary because I hate writing cliché bars and when you have a wider vocabulary it is easier to write meaningful lyrics.

 

The song has a very simplistic melody at the start, was that to keep in line with the concept of the song?

 

Nah it didn’t really have anything to do with the lyrics that’s all down to the producer.

 

You have a very commanding voice at such a young age, do you feel like you are much older than you are?

Sometimes I feel like I’m older and a lot of the things I do might make it seem that way. However, I do notice things that I do that adults wouldn’t and that snaps me back into place.
