Tell us about your background getting to where you are today?

I started rapping when I was about 12, I was kinda lucky that my dad had some recording equipment in our house so I made some awful songs for a while, after a few years of getting roasted about being that rapper kid in school I improved a lot and kept on releasing and eventually they were all banging my songs out the front of school! It was cool to see, I did my first gig at like 13, I remember having to wait in the smoking area from like 5pm and wait there to make sure I could stay in the venue cause after 6 the bouncers would be at the door asking for ID! I’d wait for the team to show up and start setting up lights upstairs. Then when I was 18 I toured Germany with INFIDELIX and met ninety7hertz. The rest is history

What is your greatest inspiration for your music?

Mac Miller is the reason I started rapping, I heard Donald Trump and thought “this dude is white, he isn’t Eminem and he’s actually doing well maybe I can do this too” I already had a love for hip hop so I thought I’d give it my best shot and 10 years later here I am still doing it!

What are 3 words that describe your music?

Original
Provocative
Weird

Tell us about your new track Lee’s Recipe and how the collaboration with DALY came about?

Me and Daly met at a gig in bloody Mary’s Dublin about a year ago, we’ve been homies since then, always appreciated his bars, and wanted to get a verse from the man as soon as I made something that fit him. We linked up and he killed his verse! I definitely think he pulls the track together nicely.

What is the hardest subject you’ve ever written about?

The duality of who you are when your sober and when your not. I have a track coming out soon that’s all about that called “can’t lie” and it was definitely a very self reflective song when it comes to abusing drugs and trying to change.

What are the challenges of being a Hip Hop artist in Ireland?

For myself it’s definitely the accent, people hate me for it I don’t really care cause if you can’t admit my music is pretty dope then your tone deaf, some people get very caught up in the fact I rap in an American accent but that’s my style so that’s what I’ll continue to do. Maybe with some Irish projects on the side with another alias but we’ll keep that quiet for now 😉

What is your greatest inspiration for your music?

People bangin my songs and knowing one day I’ll be playing shows for rooms full of people who know the lyrics. When I die I wanna be remembered so I’m making my autobiography with as much music as I can make!

Are you planning on releasing more new music soon?

A whole lot this summer is gonna be wild watch out for a lot more from RUNOFFBROKE and NINETY7HERTZ.
