This time last week I headed over to The Beat LDN 103.6 to catch up with my homies DJ Bones & Mr 13. They’ve been mad supportive since The Bus Stop EP.¬† In what was one of my most in depth chats we caught up about my outlook on the game, everything that lead up to¬†Train of Thought.

Hop on the train and peep the FULL INTERVIEW below:

The Train arrives at Radar Radio for #HungoverWithJadeAvia

By | My Thoughts

I took a trip over to Radar Radio last week to catch up with the lovely Jade Avia courtesy of my good friends over at Mixtape Madness.  We chopped it up on the show whilst sipping on some Disaronno and spoke life, Red Bull Culture Clash and catching the Train of Thought.

I definitely had a blast with the first live interview whilst pushing this project, and Jade gives a little indication of how she found our brief interaction in the video above.

Hop on the train and peep the FULL INTERVIEW below:

One Way Up and a little way from a House called Home

1WAYUP_thumbnailIt’s kind of ¬†funny how life goes sometimes. When I was a youngster, like most inner-city London kids I had a blinkered view on what was important in life. For the most part I couldn’t see far beyond “my endz” and the potential danger I’d be in if I was caught “slippin'” having drifted too far on my lonesome to another area in London.

Let me say this…I was never a “road” guy! Having an African disciplinarian as a father, I was fully dedicated to my academics, but I had no vision of what I was really working towards as the guys I saw around me, whom I perceived to have the things I longed for, were all of that “street” mentality, and albeit that I didn’t get lost in any of that, these were my friends. For them the road came with a certain sense of territory and inevitable issues¬†with kids from neighbouring areas. One such area was “Peckham”.

Welcome Back

By | My Thoughts | No Comments

During the course of the last year I’ve had a number of people ask me where I’ve been, what I’ve been doing, and why they haven’t seen much of me on the live circuit.¬†¬†The truth is, I’ve been living a relatively ordinary life, working hard and getting myself in a better place for the plans that lie ahead.

Despite the successes of¬†“The Bus Stop EP”, and my apparent growth in popularity as a result, I made a decision at the start of 2012 to use this year to change all the aspects of my life which I felt ¬†stopped me from progressing on a personal level.

I made a list of things that I wanted to change, told myself that I would achieve them by the close of the year and I’m proud to say that against all odds I managed to do so before celebrating my last birthday in November.

Using that experience as inspiration,¬†I’ve been putting pen to paper, working on a follow up project to “The Bus Stop”. I like to think I am an open & honest artist, and in many ways I hope that aspect of my work is what appeals to you. With the next project I want to invite you a little more into my thought & creative process, and continuing with the¬†“Modes of Transport”¬†theme, I’m calling it¬†“Train of Thought”.¬†

Thanks to some formidable support from yourselves, as well as peeps like Soulculture, WePlugGoodMusic, Sistova,  AllAboutGoodMusic & the rest of the LIMM outfit, I managed to achieve some great things with my last EP and thankfully its still getting heard by a lot of notable people.  As I make efforts to complete this next body of work, I realize how important it is to build on that, and with that thought grows my ambitions for where I can take this next project.

I will be using this space to share with you my progress as the new EP begins to take shape. Hopefully you’ll continue this journey with me until we reach our destination.

For now, I’ll leave you with these words that have been a source of inspiration for me over the last year:

…I don’t want to be a product of my environment, I want my environment to be a product of me!

Remain Blessed y’all.
