Tell us a bit about yourself? I am a growing artist and songwriter currently based in Croydon. Influenced by the vibes from old school to more modern rap in the UK and the US I'm developing my own style. Inspired by life, travelling the world and showcasing my music anywhere, I got some catchy flows and spiritual lines to differentiate from your average rapper.

There are a lot of emerging artists in the UK right now. What sets you apart from the rest? The vision. Everyone has their own story or message which should always be acceptable but this is art and wordplay to song structure at it's best. With one of my closest friends who's my producer Pepstep we'll have a lot of projects with vibrant tracks for everyone.

What's your back-story? Growing up in London but moving to South Africa for a few years was an experience I'll never forget. It made me see a different life and see that I can go past the boundaries to do well and live good. I know at this stage there are mad problems out there in the World and what's happening barely gets documented or much light shone on it. I like to speak more through my bars and show my real feelings, cos that's what makes me myself as an Artist.

Bodies of work are on the way and an EP is due to be announced. I speak on different matters that would be relatable to most living in London or the UK. Mentioning my loved ones, hurdles, positivity, getting wavy with good people and making the right moves in life. I like to call it motivation music. I've received recognition on BBC music and performed at many events with different musicians all over meeting a lot of well known talent.

What are you working on at the moment? New EP will be arriving in the very near future and will be available to download, purchase and stream on every platform. Also looking at more availability on shows, events that you can see me live performing tracks like 'Pledge' and 'Credentials' and some unheard exclusives.
