Lyric Video for Miami 1986

I’ve posted a new lyric video for Miami 1986, a song off of the Marvelous Adventures of the Wayback Machine.

Sometimes he best way to understand the meanings behind different song is to actually read the lyrics.  And there’s no better way to do that than through doing a lyrics video so you can read along to the music and get a better idea of whatever the hell I’m banging on about through my songs….Continue reading

Plans for a New Style of Live Set!

I have plans for a new Style of live set!  If you’ve ever come to see me live or watched any of my live streams from Periscope you’ll know I love to freestyle and come with some crazy live improvised rhymes.  To me this is an important part of Hip Hop as I always want to perform my recorded songs but also want to balanced that with things that are free and improvised because then I know people get something different every show, even if you were to follow me to every gig on every tour.  It adds an extra element that can only be demonstrated in a live situation.  This is why I talk about the importance and benefits learning to freestyle for all you beginner rappers out there.

Learning from Drum and Bass MCs

Looks Like I Need to Make More Grime

So it looks like I need to make more Grime music.  Generally I’ve made Hip Hop music as that has been my biggest influence.  My entry into rapping came from underground Hip Hop both in the US and the UK before Grime was even considered a subgenre.  That being said Grime has always been in the background throughout the years of me honing my craft, even if the subgenre hadn’t initially been ‘coined’.  It’s crazy how popular grime is becoming, with artist’s such as Dizzee Rascal and Skepta getting interviewed on Sway in the Morning as well as Hot 97 in the US.  It’s great that UK rap is getting a lot of world wide notoriety.  It’s hard not to take influence.  Much like all my other influences from Trip Hop, House, and UK Garage.Continue reading
