Tell us a bit about yourself? My name is George Bucks, I grew up merging the influence of my fathers anarchic punk collection and my mothers smooth ska and early hip hop. My sister was always mischievously playing grime in the background of my upbringing so it was only right I was gonna be one of those "Oi what you saying" types.

There are a lot of emerging artists in the UK right now. What sets you apart from the rest? I think when you look in the direction of every rap artists you end up stereotyping but its hard for a white kid from suburban Britain to channel his inner gun passions when what he really wants to talk about is how annoying Brexit is for normal people or how the rest of the world around me is in a f***ing bubble of fake attitudes.

What’s your back-story? I make hip hop music for that one kid who used to come in to school on non-uniform days with his uniform on that everyone laughed at but no one truly cared about his background... I guess

What are you working on at the moment? The Ep and Features are all popping off.
