ell us a bit about yourself? A UK based Hip Hop recording artist. Starting out through poetry, Poet Initiative developed a taste for hip hop flows and culture, integrating the two into one unique sound. Highly influenced by the Korean music scene, he tries to incorporate Korean vibes into each track. If I had to go further and name specific people, I'd say the sounds of Jay Park, Okasian and Zico really influence my sound.

There are a lot of emerging artists in the UK right now. What sets you apart from the rest? Being an artist in this day is though, therefore you need to find something to set you apart from the rest of the artists. I use Korean in my music to try and integrate two different flows into one. With K-Hip Hop being a growing genre, which is already popular among so many people, I would love to be a part of the rise of this genre and be the first person from England to be known for it.

What’s your back-story? Each song I make has a different meaning or motive behind it. I released a track on Valentines day which was about me missing someone; alternatively I released a number of tracks surround the concept of spirituality - each track reflects the mindset that i'm currently in.

What are you working on at the moment? I have two tracks that are hopefully going to be big releases for me. Although I've been putting music out this year, it is just to build a little reputation. The next few tracks will have videos and will hopefully be big pushes for me to make a name for myself in music.

What's the first song you remember hearing? I don't remember the first, but being of Punjabi origin I believe the first song I heard was Punjabi.

You're in a Karaoke Bar - What's your go to song? This would have to be Notorious B.I.G - Juicy

What was the first gig you went to? The first gig I went to was actually with my mum - it was to see Lionel Ritchie.

Which song do you wish you'd written? I wish I'd written Jay Park's Aquaman - the vibe of the song and the music just gets you in a really good mood.

Which song changed your life? I'd say 'Puff Daddy - I'll be missing you' really changed me - makes me think a lot about the people we have lost.
