[Music] physically and mentally the same kind of thing the only thing that was other people i saw stressing and i think that is what i felt more in a lockdown what other people were going through maybe older people people from um less privileged backgrounds than others you know i mean that how are they coping with the situation that we're in but um i don't want to lie and say i wasn't good because i have been good like obviously i have my low moments everyone gets little depression moments and anxious moments but i feel like i use like music fashion and fitness and family and them things the kind of push myself through i would say but um i think it's an ongoing thing because it's the world's constantly changing now again now do you know i mean big fats you know i mean the rules keep changing things keep changing we don't know what variants are coming so it's all changing imagine how i'm saying all right let's get back straight so from the from the resource point west london yeah yeah for sure we're back to west london sure well i live in notting hill oh no carnival yeah yeah no carnival hey yes with your free drinks right now i can go back and say like i started a tv program there in channel 4 for seven days okay and that was like 10 years ago so like since well three years before that so i've been in growth for about 12 years not until five twelve years twelve years now i think i've been living there it's crazy when i think about it that's mad that's right if they can find a way to contain it to a sense then yes if they can't then no because i just don't think they can make any this me being real like anything the government can't profit off of or they can't contain they're not going to allow it to go do you know what i'm saying people always complain about the royal ascot why they had these things going on because they're you know i mean they're making money at these places um carnival is like it's our celebration of our food on the stands culture understand that and obviously yeah some people clean up afterwards yeah but you have to remember most of the people doing are probably like minorities you have to keep it like you know i mean it's us us so it's like that's our celebration i think it was if that was happening in the caribbean country then cool maybe i still have it but here in london i can't see it i hope so though because i'm part of the committee so we've been sending them loads of like different things that to try and find a way around it but it's a hard one man it doesn't work [Laughter] okay i'll swear down no do you know what it is you post myself somewhere in this drink do you know what it is i've got so much family and friends and people i work with in bush like some of my music career did start ambush i used to use a studio called wendy house um early and i used to be there with um angel and akell and you know i mean this is early times like i say like 2011. yeah yeah shout out western as well before they were even western i was around highly louis when he was just doing his rap thing so we just all grew up together you know what i mean so i was always in bush while i was in harrow road i was in grove where i was in west kensington fulham it just depended everywhere's in west though do you know what i mean so we just kind of now i float about if you all said anyone about me i'm i'm around that i'm kind of i'm everywhere about nowhere it's weird all right i'm going to be honest that i prefer the stratford one okay that's what you get okay i'm gonna be honest man yeah do you know what i get more things more exclusive things than the stratford one what was it yeah every time i go to the one in like bush my one like they've got things the stratford one will have them things and other things though i think it's bigger it's got more they've added a part on oslo a prime month they tried to do the europe thing on our own no i'm saying i put a prayer mark there but you're taking nothing you know this [ __ ] hear me yeah how what made you think that i'm i'm just watching it it's awesome because you're like bro which one has more girls which whispers do you see more um do you know what it's funny yeah because no no do you know what this is a good question it is a good question it's good that you asked me that as well because i'm going to answer this question from an honest standpoint whether i was taken or not yeah i'm not the type of guy that looks at girls like that i don't yeah i don't go around looking at and i don't want to sound big headed and say because i'm blessed yeah or saturn because i've never really had to move to girls like i create relationships out of like friendships or out of knowing someone or social because for the last 10 years i've been like in the entertainment industry in social environments where girls are just there you know what i'm saying and they're willing to connect and speak and you get to know people so i think that i never really had that space when i was first in that westfield and but then again let me not lie though now when i when i when i come off channel four and i went to the westwood and which it was crazy i'm not gonna lie i'm not gonna lie actually is it yeah yeah yeah yeah i'm not gonna lie it was crazy it's crazy it was crazy but yeah but yeah no i wouldn't know you know i've never really looked at i'm going to go to another country for girls if i'm going to look at girls i don't want to say that pick up my uk for my english girls you know what i don't want to say english girls are dead it's and when you say english do you mean like british citizens or do you mean english like the english girl that grew up and live here and then the english culture hey we're tipsy people we don't get pretty correct here but i'll say no more then english girls are dead in it and cool you say you've been to different kinds of troubles which kind of got the best females in nigeria without a doubt seriously without a doubt magic girls without a doubt no no it's not even because i'm nigerian i'm saying i'm from grenada in the west indies you know what i'm saying that's where are you guys sick i can actually see that though you don't have clear skin bro but you know all the time it's mad now i get loads of like i'm jamaican that's what i like at the time okay you should get the same one yeah yeah i do all the time it's annoying especially speaking [Laughter] so again i mean so your girlfriend's not in hell only child or only child now i got imagine this i got three younger brothers one older brother and two younger sisters okay imagine that my god well i've got one brother that's got the same woman then then all the rest of my siblings have either a different mom or a different dad so my two sisters have different moms and my two younger brothers have different dads so in the household was you all together in the household no no no no definitely you know one of my sisters lives in africa one of them lives in east okay funnily enough hoxton my dad lives in hoxton as well east um two of them live in northern hill as well 87 stacey and my other brother shah lives with me imagine that he lives in my other room in my flat imagine that so what was it like growing up in hilda man um cause i'm from south so i didn't really hear a story about western oh oh sweat on i don't know you know what but you know what growing up in notting hill it was just mad multicultural to be honest with you bro that um you can never really predict what's gonna happen or what's going to that every day because there's so many different type of characters and there's such a divide so like i live so you can walk up and there'll be a million pound houses then you can walk down to council state houses down the hill five minute walk you know i'm saying so there's that divide but i think it's pretty much called multicultural in that way where all them people mix together i don't feel like anyone makes anyone feel that they've got more money than the other person and we they we always like connect ideas and stuff that's one thing that was nice about growing up in on hill so even when i've done that channel 4 program they were mixing like all different people from walks of life so it could be like me for example i was coming from my walker left and then we had like a gay hairdresser for example yeah that's what i'm saying then um like a millionaire that's 55. i'm saying and he likes to walk his cats and you know i'm saying he had like a pool in his house drinking champagne every day his name was champagne malcolm then there was a woman on it called laura silly like and you know i'm saying and i've made music with her so it was just different people but she was more privileged she came from like a background where her parents had money for example i didn't come from that background nor did malcolm he grinded he's like obviously an immigrant that traveled over here and made it happen so it's just different things it was it's all them different types of people but everyone's able to make money in that infrastructure so growing up there it was kind of it's very diverse i give it that it's very diverse obviously you've got carnival there as well do you know what i mean and you've got portabella road the market so it's it's good i can't even complain about it but it has both his size though because it does have a really a side that doesn't have money now i'm saying so that's where you get the drill artists coming out of there from then saying their story saying the same thing so wait growing up in the multicultural era do you see would you experience racism then of course okay oh yeah yeah of course of course you there's two types of racism though um that you experience you experience the racism like it's like expanse it's still racism but it's more like i might be of my right friend i don't want to say something wrong right now but i might be of a guy that's more cockney or more white okay in a sense that but when i say they might their black joke would be like ah all black people have big dicks for example like do you know what i'm saying you lot man you are taking our girls mate you know what i'm saying with your [ __ ] big dicks i go well i'm to your luck man yeah the money and everything yeah that but it's different like when i say racism i experience it in two different types of ways so that type of way is that you've got white friends and it's like light-hearted it's more bands if so to speak you know i mean and we still have that kind of bounce up until now with my chinese friends my indian etc i mean but then there's other type of racism which i think there's two levels to that racism it's racism and classism at the same time i feel like i experienced so it's like a privileged white person let's just say not understanding where we're coming from or what our culture is and just being ignorant to it and just judging it so i think i've never like it would never be like you black this but it's more like i can see what you're doing here you're trying to separate us or judge i should not let us into this particular building or do you know what i'm saying them kind of things happen in norton hill now over the time like even grenfell like you know i'm saying that proper sad story but that's the same kind of thing it's like overlooking things that you know like you know i'm saying where to help that higher class society or white people whatever it may be whatever people want to call it you know what i mean but we move man coming in my house looking at it happened from my window he's watching it yeah for sure crazy isn't it how did you find that you've watched news and you just looked out no do you know what happened it was like two in the morning what time was it two three in the morning my brother was awake but you can smell it you could smell the smoke like if you weren't if you were in grove at the time if you lived in notting hill west london anywhere close to the grenfell tower building you could smell the smoke 100 uh you could smell the smoke you know what i'm saying and smoke was coming out everywhere people were screaming did i mean because it was happening so i think word spread and people were screaming everywhere do you feel me so then i've looked out my window the back window and the building's on fire literally like you if you it's mad because i've taken that instagrams from my back window to show like exactly it's proper in my view and i live on the third floor in it so from my view i can see it now it's got the green heart on it which is lovely cool but um i'm saying before that it was on fire and i see it happening it's people screaming it was crazy like you know it was hot it was like hell still i can't wait about where you lived um my building doesn't have cladding okay but funnily enough after the grenfell thing happened they upped like the fire safety regulations in my building you know i mean so they they came and changed all the locks and that reinforced some of the downstairs windows and you know i'm saying try to make it look like they kind of care about that it being a fire hazard kind of thing and they probably do in fact you know what i'm saying but here's what it is but yeah it was crazy bro there's a child i think he's a penis there's a guy that lied about he was in that building isn't it i was when i was the guy you tried to claim money from it yeah like that he was in the building but he didn't live there i'm so happy i missed that boy yeah man how would it have been out on him because i like we've done we've done something for that actually funny enough when grenfell happened a few days after it we've done like a fundraiser in the park successful yeah it was crazy it was crazy you know about channel 4 came down and filmed it lethal bee came and performed but bear people even central see who's out now massive he was there like everyone you could imagine like me and a guy called seshi miss i am next there we sat down and he was calling on his links and then we just done a show there man a live show i made everyone come down and donate clothes and the money and then i went out the next day giving clothes and money to the victims or whoever i could find that was that new the victims that could give it to them basically so that was good as well man so that yeah man it's it was a crazy time and it's a crazy time and they still ain't got the justice they need still or deserve so it's so mad so grand school what kind of child was you in school there mom what kind of yeah do you know what it's weird because i was a um a cross between a class clown but i was mad intelligent but i don't think i was intelligent in terms of like i i know it all i was just good at remembering things bro okay like you know what i'm saying so like me saying in maths if you teach me something i'm not going to forget what you just taught me you know i mean in order for me to work out same as english i said i was creative in english creative writing okay so i was good in creative writing in english but everything else it was that remembering like formulas and numbers and that kind of stuff like i find it easy to remember stuff like i listen to a song once i remember that guy's lyrics i can sing the song in it i'm that kind of person so in school i've always been that i used to hum i learned to make music off singing other people's songs over and over again like you know i'm saying that's how i learned to make music i was around that big up angel actually because i was around him when i was a young kid yeah and he when i was with him and this is when he had dreads and he was young he was making beats okay i used to chill with him and he just used to make beats and come up with melodies but he was young when i say young we were young he was like he's a couple years older than me so this was young we were like teenagers i might have been 12 like that's not what i'm saying [Music] one younger two older brothers he's got see there's there's a lot of them there charles baby's a big family legendary family still that's a legendary family and western i trust me before the story here quickly in terms of music do you think west get enough respect do i study london um do you know what i think it's happening more now i think that um we paved the way before that like we don't in the terms of i think we're under viewed i don't think we're underrated though but i think we're underviewed because people i think a little bit of it comes from people think we're more boogie or don't have the same struggle a little bit i think no no no because that's what i said sometimes when you think about something money fashion yeah yeah that's what i think that's what i think do you know i mean music i said east had the gram in it yeah yeah for sure south rap yeah yeah yeah right and the north is northern like obviously i got tian wayne there you go yeah but you kind of have to dig because like do you know what we are a bit bougie i've realized you know we kind of won't keep our self to ourself we don't mix up as much i'm not gonna lie like i'll see all the east man them around each other the north the south man around each other and they mix with each other as well we don't do that as much though i'm going to be honest we don't do that as much i'm being honest with you but i don't think we've had enough popular obviously aj tracy's come oh yeah aj fredo um central sencha dig digger and then we've got western angels shackle i'm just trying to think of all the names clear yourself man yeah they're not enough for sure because i'm around them i'm around all these as well do you know what i mean um well when i'm thinking about it they don't mix with everyone else as much though like you know i mean like you have to think about how many tunes obviously i think western right now are doing more tunes with like the scene i think they've done a lot of collaborations with bringing west out there calling themselves western because they weren't called that in the beginning when they made into that was a kell featuring heidi and louis like you know what i'm saying when they first met that they were to be called western union at a point another stuff and then they got signed and they become western and then they're the amazing group you see today like you know what i'm saying but before that now there wasn't no one putting on for westlake i'm gonna have to keep it real like my brother's kept put on for west still so in terms of what's the first thing that you sort of made you think yeah i want to do this um my dad let me honestly my dad's still up to the stage then how old about that 57 two days ago maybe 52 days ago maybe happy birthday that big up you but um yeah him he's a dj and i want to say he's a mike man but i've become his might man since i was a teenager i hate you mike manns do you know what i hate us too secretly but what do you hate first right now i said this before the radio box rave dance with a chick nice girl having a good dance night my man comes up rubbish for two minutes killed the mood in that now yeah she's going off now now the music plays i'm trying to find her found her back again now then i might man come back talk to me rubbish she get in it i agree with you still do you know what i actually agree with you and that's the thing i think i kind of pride myself on not over being overbearing imagine what i'm saying because it might mean when i get girls as well yeah yeah yeah for sure for sure but judge you know what it is yeah like and when i say overbearing yeah like i know what you mean like people talking all over the songs and etc etc you're meant to introduce a dub play or a song let the people vibe and let the people give you the energy in that situation or not but it depends on the circumstance so that i that's why i'm more of a host than a hype man for live shows okay not club nights okay i have to pick and choose what i do you know what i'm saying because like in a club cool it's nice and that but i know what i feel like like the same as you i'm dancing with two tools and then my man coming shouting all over the room he's not even singing as good as the rhythm and that like you know what i'm saying i feel you that so i hear you i feel you i can't even i feel you still i feel you so i kind of pick and choose that so i agree with you still so i mean remember the first rap you wrote the first rap i ever wrote um that's a oh that's a good question i'm trying to think about it now what's the first rap i ever ever wrote raw it was probably whack no the first rap i ever wrote and i'm talking about root not someone's because i remember i told you i was that i came up beside other people's lyrics like in a sense of like that's how i learned to rap and sing or whatever it is that you do make music i'll take free music so my first raps i ever wrote were probably probably grime okay yeah some of you days man yeah way i can't even you know well for me i think like as soon as you tell me you made it man use lip man but that's how i thought as well but he was on remember he was free do you know what i'm saying all day every day yeah see the same people are telling you you know what i'm saying yeah i just want to go happy east london i'm just letting you know east london was famous when i was young oh straight for rips it was famous bro you couldn't i'm telling you anyone from east you saw any of the mc's from east like the girls love demand them from you know what i'm saying east was the place to be i used to watch all the dvds you know what i'm saying it was you get what i'm saying he's actually pioneered this thing secretly you know they pioneered this thing still so in terms of music are your family supportive or when they support you um that's a good question as well you know was my family support and i never really you never really know if they are until you're doing something where you you do something and it's like okay this is helping you do this now like whether it be travel or buy something called pay your bills or when it starts becoming real like that that's when they raise they've always supported my creativity you know i mean i created many different facets it's not just music which i mean i've always been a kid that might be making subbing diamonds onto a jacket as well i'm saying using drawing using photoshop editing videos that i mean playing football that being creative that like i do the fitness now the only reason i do all these other fitness is because i just like to explore so i think they've always i was making beats as well when i was young so even when the beat was crap or if it wasn't good my art is going to support me or my mom or whatever was going to support me and say yeah yeah keep on going encouraging me you know i mean so i think they've always supported the music i think it just became real when i went on tv and done seven days that i think it became real because there was a much um there was a magnifying glass on what i was doing so i think a much bigger audience was open to seeing what i was doing you know i mean since then i've just been doing the music fitness and fashion literally that the fitness dropped off for a little while because the entertainment industry it's a lot of turning up that's me being honest it wasn't it wasn't connected to fitness for a long time well not in my world anyway the scope i was living it wasn't connected it wasn't in the same place so for me i was doing more entertainment and fashion the fitness has come back in lockdown where i couldn't do as much entertainment and fashion because you're not wearing nothing yeah that's what i'm saying and you can't be out and entertaining people then so i was at home and trying to entertain people then through my stretch here and my home workouts and stuff like that and that was getting as much viral love as my music and stuff so i was like okay i need to bring this back people actually care okay about where my mind's at and what i'm doing to make my body physically healthy and etc you know i mean so i had to start doing that as well so um i think they've supported from the beginning but when i done the tv show it's gonna become real because you see cameras and you see different money see different opportunities so it changes i suppose i mean when we get to fitness i just want to in terms of grenada like when you people talk when you've grown up you said you were from green just to explain where grenina was and that's people yeah definitely because i was like because i'm guiding music going on yeah yeah yeah no guyana guyanese yeah the wine is going to be on 10 100 percent it's the island of spice isn't it so um it's we come from that's our culture if so to speak that but um with grenada i think people get i don't know if there's enough somewhere else called granada there's somewhere else maybe i'm not sure exactly you're like me maybe maybe it's the drink talking though i've had granada before by coming away but yeah greater yeah i know there's a great carnival in it yeah it's grenada carnival as well no i'm saying about grenada um for me um explaining grenada's people do you know what it's been it's been hard but there's so many grenadians here in the uk though that's made it kind of easy like even like i said angel's grenadian okay kell and that heidi they're grenadian bro like do you get what i'm saying so because they're grenadian and a lot of people around me if you like um that come to my house every day or we're in the studio chopping it up or we go to like training or whatever a lot of my friends around me a lot of them are west indian and grenadian or african it's one of the two yeah yeah there's african or west indian more time we have different other cultures and races but they're the two that i've grown up with so i suppose i never had to explain it because i was around my family most of the time a lot of time okay maybe when i'm by the time i got older and i was out and people asking me where i was from people's geography was good before the research no because i hate when people say caribbean think of jamaica and trinidad that's it i hate that yeah that's it yeah yeah all the other places as well on it but again full behind bars man oh for what do you remember that no that's crazy do you research that's crazy [Music] that's crazy no one's asking me about that for time football behind bars i wouldn't be honest with you uncle right yeah uncle ian he saved me secretly he actually saved me at that time secretly this is mentally what would you guys before that before that my mom just passed away when i was at 17 so and i had three younger brothers so my auntie adopted us my auntie it's got my three younger brothers my 14 to 15 year old brother at the time shy was back and forth at my house and um i think through that time it was i was 17 just turned 18. i just got a flat

it was a lot of responsibility i had my three brothers responsible i was responsible for them i think at that time i was trying to make money that's me being honest to be afforded to be able to pay my bills i suppose yeah i suppose so i just got caught up in doing anything to make money do you know what i'm saying yeah of course whether it was selling drugs whether it was i said in a bike whether it was selling goods whether it was working for chelsea being a coach whether it was working for retail for two weeks because i could stay there for two weeks and get bored but you said chelsea football club yeah oh yeah yeah what dare who saved me though chelsea's like who was famous that you met chelsea do you meet a little footballer do you know what i meant everyone the famous people at chelsea but who saved me at chelsea um football it was that so was football in the community so that was that the metropolitan police funded like a project that young offenders would go into and become coaches and obviously coach the young kids so they don't become offenders too cetera but that was ian wright as well behind bars was the same thing so i was a young offender basically now i went on remand and then i came out i was around ian right and then ian wright had an opportunity for young offenders basically to go into the prisons and play football against the prison inmates of these prisons and then obviously we will learn why we don't want to go back to prison and etc etc um and then obviously finding our way out through sports if so to speak but um so he had like a project called behind bars but he just brought me on it because i was a young offender but i was working for chelsea kicks at the time so instead of me doing my community service or whatever it would have been he had me do that instead so he made them refer that and i was doing football handballs and said so he brought me to portland prison other prisons you're playing against inmates i was sitting down listening to their stories etc do you know what i did see a lot of talent but i saw a lot of killers in there man all right at that age because you see why because i was young like being a teenager and going into that big man prison like to like portland prison and these places like and then just seeing and see what that when you go on raimondo you gonna fail and you think it's something but you're a kid in it when you go big man prison it's a different thing people are catching that murder cases inside the prison and etc doing certain things so when they're telling me their stories to be honest it's just making you understand like how much time you have and how much time you don't want to waste really at that time time is precious i'm saying that's what he was saying like and well lots of them a lot of them go in there and mad stuff happen to them people take their manhood away and certain thing like you know they're saying to me so it's like i think i opened my eyes as well about like just not even wanting to go back into that situation at all so that ian wright and he saved me at that time you might not even know you might even remember because there was loads of us at the time okay like that but like in at that time he done a good thing for the prison inmates and obviously for the young offenders that were going there to work as well but then from there now i was doing loads of things for chelsea i started flying out with my friend adam who was sonic i was called showtime i'm saying that football tricks okay i was putting my music behind it and stuff and that's where everything kind of was starting more at that time was where everything kind of started imagine that so it's funny you ask about that football handballs because that's kind of where i started started properly that was before seven days in channel four he he he was the first thing yeah so be honest would you like more football or music or music both the same arcade both same i love fitness to save his music fashion um like i'm i'm passionate about all my hobbies the same way i think music just gets a different expression out of me that certain type of people resonate with do you know i mean so my music like right now it's more well more time has always been dominant in the afro-caribbean and i talk about female empowerment a lot and um what i'm going through i'm very i'm more emotionally driven in my music more than i am in terms of maybe it might be to do my fitness fitness and more have a fun approach like you know i mean i'm glad to be hating on you a bit you know i'll tell you why yeah because obviously the video i put for you that handlebar thing in it oh yeah you're my what's happening i spoke to like three months and who's that who's that who's that who's that who's that oh my gosh i forget this guy needs to go up for black pepper too mum rob do you know what it's funny to say like to cut like do you say that because i feel like people are gonna secretly like samuel for the olympics some of my virgins and then that's it well i'll go on it you know a couple of my friends do you know what a couple of my friends have been on there yeah ninja warrior one of my friends hey shout out my girl nicole yeah she i worked with her pocket gym on a shoot like we do fitness that she's like a retired gymnast uh nicole hibbert yeah but she done ninja warrior as well but i just wanted like a whole session with her she's dope as well but i would go on there still because i see she was good on there as well so i'll go in there but she said it was mentally and physically hard though i see her post enough i'm saying oh it looks a bit crazy you know but i'll do it man for the sport man i'm i'm one of them guys i'm going where the vibes are i'm where the vibes are so you do personal fitness yeah training females or men i'm going to be honest with you definitely females because i'm more into mobility and flexibility and strength in range of motion and like body awareness mind-to-body connection more than i am into strength generating i think strength comes fundamentally from doing things that you know i'm saying you don't really have to overload your body unless you want to build muscle you can overload with big weights and stuff but building strength it comes from way more than pushing weights and actually figuring out people build strength based on repetition of what i'm saying trying to gain muscle and etc but i think strength comes from so much more places than that you know i mean would you say you're insecure no i'll say do you know why i'm not insecure um because i'm okay with who i am and i'm okay with what people think about me and their opinion do you know i mean i'm in a space where i'm not even trying to prove anything to anybody i gotta accept how people feel and agree to disagree sometimes i used to be in school when i was younger though but insecure about little things though now the reason i said that because they say there's three versions of yourself how the world sees you how you see you yeah the real using it yes of course how different the world sees you then um that's an interesting question i i'm actually not sure i think the world sees me as like i said before i think i represent music fitness and fashion but i think sometimes me being honest i think the world sometimes gets it mixed up and doesn't understand me sometimes and i'm going to say that because i do so many different things do you know what i mean so people think that of course man yeah do you know what i'm saying but i think i'm just passionate about more things people will say like nah man do more music videos and do more lists and do more likes and you should perform more but there's a lot of time there there's a lot of performances i just don't go to sometimes but it just doesn't suit where i'm at at the time or it doesn't go with my heart or the way i feel natural i'm saying it it's gotta feel good for me like so i think that helps with me not being insecure as well actually not turning up to things that i don't want to be at as well yes you know what i'm saying because then when you're there you have to be insecure yeah you know what i'm saying because you can't be secure so um i think um the world looks at me as just another person but i think sometimes i'm just going based on what social media and how i get responded to and stuff like that i think sometimes they misinterpret what i'm trying to do and who i am i actually i'm not a person who forces anything i'm never trying to really sell anything to anybody i'm just doing it and just posting up for i would post i would do this anyway anything i'm posting i would do anyway okay okay i mean i'll come to see you if you was to shout me and say well i'm interested i want to have a conversation with you can we have a drinking conversation it wouldn't have to be on a radio station it could be in a bar you could just say that's what i'm saying so i think i'm more at a space where i think the world sometimes sees me as i'm trying to like they're not sure what i'm trying to sell but i'm not actually trying to sell anything i just get paid for the skills that i do have like whether it's fitness music fashion marketing certain things i just get paid for them things but i'm not initially trying to sell anything to anyone but lifestyle okay but being self-aware that's what i'm trying to sell more become self-aware enjoy life right you know what i'm saying like genuinely like go out and learn like don't always think you're the smartest person in the room do you know i'm saying these things here so i'm i think i'm in that space the way i see myself is as we know like i i see myself as all the things i just explained and i think that's the way the world views me the way i see myself is the way i thought and the romeo the real me is super laid back okay the real me is super laid back the me that everyone else sees is probably always turn like turning up at places and etc drinking making music shooting music videos et cetera man whatever but i think personally to me at home i'm buying a zoo i'm chilling oh no you're just a caribbean guy you're just a chill relationship yeah yeah i'm the old man on the porch secret man yeah [Music] i speak a lot at these things because i have to speak about myself but i like listening to people speaking you know i mean yeah yeah and just like relaxing and chilling out you know i mean so like yeah i think i'm way more children people probably think way more let's get into the game man this game is basically there's some there's some names in the pot there oh yeah i see so basically take a name out take one of the names out and i will give your first opinion what you think of the thing so this is the uk classic songs in it okay so we do take a sip first okay cool and you take one up and then when you get say your opinions about the song all right tipsy talk wave wednesdays we wednesdays here with risky juventus all right let's see [Laughter] what you got oh another thing is i mess with it the thing is i miss you it's it's weird yeah because that i got a very um alternative playlist like when people like so obviously when i'm changing clients they might hear my music and it's very alternative like it's very that it's all different but it won't be no drill and stuff in there but this is stuff like this is my guilty pleasure now i'm not going to lie like garlin all these drill tubes i love drill it reminds me of like when i was doing grime when i was young and i was just coming out and everyone was coming through doing gram that canon and shape and ice cream etc now um even wiley p money gets like a name of kabir forever name in them but um it reminds me the same thing even when people say it's in sight and violence but we were talking the most gasps from usda and ground see me i'm not matter because usually because i wouldn't stage how i say it facts facts that's why i love when grandma's come and do drawers come to the station because bro you're doing two hours productively here in it yeah is it doing nonsense on the road that's true actually i was watching one of the episodes as well yeah so i prefer that in it so i see this kind of like a youth club just understand something yeah yeah yeah not for sure trying to get back to the community let them do this this is their talent their passion isn't it that's not your that you might say that that's what it's about yeah yeah that's why i started hosting yeah yeah i started hosting them because i'm passing the torchiness yeah yeah that's like me yeah i love that i love that i love that i love my sister yeah that's like me i love seeing people win yeah i don't know because again some people like rob if i shine you shine in it yeah do you know what i'm saying i'm saying that yes i don't mind that it's important man so you have about doing a little room with yourself like unleashing yourself um do you know what it is you know what it is i just don't think okay now this is me knowing myself i know people don't want to see me do that oh okay yeah do you know what i'm saying it just wouldn't fit my character like you know what i'm saying it wouldn't fit people be like why is he doing that even if it sounds good sometimes it's just not for you uh because i can do flows and stuff like i can spit on any beat i can rap on any beat like you know i mean i've been rapping for so long that i'm not going to change up my flow or try and use someone else's style and i don't want to rap like me my voice i know how to i know words i know how to articulate myself i understand cadence like i understand all that but it doesn't mean that i work on every type of music i've tried it i'm at home i'm with my studio so i've tried to rap on nine different types electric jungle bass hip-hop it might be anything but i've realized their mouth the best amalgamation for me is just afro-caribbean with hip-hop in it hip-hop that that's it that as long as i said news that call-in um ghetto rhyme or do you better it's that amalgamation it's out of afro or or caribbean and afrobeats b or a mix of each and then some wrapping it which will sound conscious rap hip-hop kind of rap that kind of same kick or drum pattern as well that kind of speed and tempo so that outside of that sphere like i don't think people want that from me like i can't be on my dinner table and play my gram songs with my auntie and my granny and them two around me but when i've got them songs for example they'll listen to that i say i like that i like your message in that etc so i know that's resonating that's dancing why didn't you that sounds like good films yeah and they want a little message when they're on their own so they can listen and say oh he never misses his calling i understand what you were saying i was writing to it before but he's saying something they want that but i've realized i'm in a space in that age where i think that's what i need to deliver to young people into my family and whatever so that i think but i've got young people around me so like if i've got a young artist around me i help them right yeah i'll put them on like no problem i'll bring them to my studio let them go in imagine what i mean that's how i found out with you bro so take another sip yeah choose another one ma'am all right i didn't put that one back in my hand that's good don't put it back in all right [Music] what do you got man i grew up on this rhythm still boy in the corner dizzy rascal i love you classic hey what do i think of when i hear this rhythm i think of raves childhood grime counts to the state um best days of my life to be honest some of the best days of my life um a lot of things that shaped me as a person today learning experience is it's crazy when i was first allowed to stay out for a bit later usually i'm kind of thinking i feel like that this gives me that kind of feeling i love you dizzy you also gives me that kind of vibe that kind of feeling like back then when i first i used to know all this us was bars at one stage in my life everything of course it was crazy and put that take it put it outside take another sip and think about one man that's crazy geez biscuit japan tipsy talk all right see the next one in the morning hey i don't wanna

and then i got grenada on my fire on my car sorry i'm not yourself now i got grenade on my cough um but hold on let me give you the mixer as well but i'm flipping i'm trying to think um am i addicted tattoos it's weird because i'm addicted when i start getting them but when i haven't had one because i didn't get tattooed for five years at one time and then i got one of my son's name on my arm okay like when i was in tbilisi doing a festival with shay lingar um we got tattoos before the festival festival it's crazy um when i was doing that um i got a tattoo on my arm of my son's name and tibilisi in georgian that's the language they speak is georgian okay so i've got in georgian um am i addicted no yeah man i'm addicted to tattoos man flip it i'm addicted you know what um do you know what funny enough i'll be real with you i've got one of my ex-girlfriend's lips on my neck i won't say her name her natural lips yes her lips i said she kissed a piece of paper with lipstick on and then i went to the tattoo shop and then got it done still but that's my g though oh okay okay are you so cool but yeah i'm yeah but i feel like she's so out here that i can't even say her name no she doesn't even do music she's a stylist still oh okay like my first ever this might be my first one of my first ever girlfriends that one in my seriously issue when i first moved to david grove this is the first person i was with most people who know me know me like that old school will know what i'm talking about when i say who i was looking at you know your name on her no no no no no no no no i'm a bit older than her as well so that i think and i was more into the tattoo thing because remember i started getting tattoos because i was influenced by little wayne and whatnot yeah i'm saying back in the day you know what yeah i'm even mad at that because i've got my ears because of the tiny temple i'll swear down imagine that the big diamonds yeah that's what i'm saying you know he's a barber shop and he's a barber chicken his haircut yeah wait no not all right let me flick this around what's the next one you got from the pot man oh yeah let me get another one from the pot hold on all right let's see what aguana up in there it's the uk anthem let's see if you know what's it's a uk anthem i'm so tipsy right now that's all the uk um what do i think of when i um think about geek soaking the hardest same thing you know i think i'm culture i think groundbreaking i think legendary there was that the things that come to my mind when i think that um maybe i'm saying big words like this because i've been drinking too much but yeah no no when i think of gigs i think all them things talking the hardest and i know the lyrics still and i don't even i don't remember listening to that song because my preference of music is definitely more r b more melodic i like afrobeats i like caribbean music as well like on a personal level like i listen to her but that song i know all the lyrics and i don't remember having it on my playlist do you know what i'm saying but i know that's what they would like sneak peek like i've never really had it on my playlist but i know all the words it's crazy but somehow let's do that that's what makes them great do you know what i'm saying so put that name to the side and let's do another one another one let go into your magic box tunes are gone oh raw what the original lethal mizzle pow talk about it you got some old-school gems in here you know talk that was a game changer you know i'm not gonna lie that's another tune i never had on my play this but i knew all the words again how yeah i'm need to be power if you don't know about my personality that is pretty all gonna be probably the best start to a song in uk all the time you're barking up the wrong tree that's like that's me that's down a few how are you gonna bust in there [Music] yeah yeah but i think that's my favorite version of that whole song now few more doing it you're going to bring arm's house i mean to your mom's house do you know what it's more emotionally inciting that one that one what arms house i'll bring it to your mom's house my jeans black everyone through that stage yeah you know what i'm saying because man went through that stage i i i relate to that you know what i'm saying if you bring it to my mom's house that's when you're crossing the line but um yeah not for sure i think band as well that's what i'm saying i was saying to you earlier the the drill era reminds me of when man was coming up on grime was happening i was doing grandma's part of it so george looks like that to me okay and older people didn't understand it like you get what i'm saying a person a certain didn't really understand a demographic so like i'm saying you just gotta keep pushing their thing until it's you know i'm saying undeniable but let me go back in your box again i see where i've gone oh yeah i'm on live as well while i go online man i'm not going hogs bro you're good we're drinking up walls um yeah we're drinking up for you i'm drinking up for all of you not in line still remember the ones behind bars as well all right oh this this might be one of my favorites that i've picked up so far is that one cano freezing queues legendary do you know why this is legendary i feel like kalo was the first one i related to and he gave me my confidence seriously do you know why and when i say music yeah do you see that things he was saying when even in this song when he goes ah no whip out the manner lincoln chicks that's slipping he gave us gems back in the day everything he was saying that you know what i'm saying on this tune resonated with me let's be being real the space i was at in my life i don't know if he was experiencing the same things but just the way that cano depicts what he was going through just resonated with me you know what i'm talking about my favorite creative versus what one maybe that's a routine check oh that was cold two black boys in the gutter if it was stolen why would we stop them or kane robertson that jay z and that problem yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah that routine check song yeah hey yeah okay see that that error of calor i think canada all the time here is one of my favorites at all times well you know what yeah yeah cold actor cold actor i'm a big fan of cleanup still i think that album's legendary song oh crazy crazy crazy i know what it bothers me that one as well i i know most lyrics you're crazy but yeah man 100 like i'm ps and q is like literally one of my that's i am from there man um so take another one another sip and i gotta take a sip yeah just wait i'll wait for one to get one are you waiting for me to become a certain thing you know there's one

asking you the king of justin isn't it yeah bieber's still got time bieber probably will be the king of justin depending on what his next 10 years looks like because he's what 27 he's 26 he's still young he's got i've got 10 more years to get to that space of he's goated already but there's another level of goat he can get to though justin bieber do you know i'm saying let's go to 21 seconds now yes um 21 seconds that was one of my favorite tunes ever you're the best person oh you're making me go there 21 that one's my favorite because he says i should never really buy this color because i'm older now man even whatever still pick up your verse though um give me some more i got 21 seconds to turn this romeo first there was another person on there ah there's another one on there not demons

feel like i'm getting i'm sitting i don't get wasted oh my god i'm getting waved all right this tune right here this choose when i first went into lockdown and this is how i felt about a lot now when i first went into look i'd imagine that it's the first song i made when i went into lockdown and this actually explains how i was feeling about lockdown at that time okay um i think a lot of people think in the song i'm talking about um like a female because i like how the lyrics are but i'm actually talking about my relationship with god and music funny enough funny enough the emotions might come from the mother of my first child of my child um leo but um i think that the song in itself um was more about my relationship with music and god and where my mind was at the time dealing with the pandemic and this was me expressing myself this song done a lot for me as well actually funny enough because it's the first thing i shot in the pandemic where um he was obviously locked down so i couldn't do much i shot in my house and some of it in the car outside like you know i'm saying on a quick video but that one resonated with people as well till this day i know people are going to be listening to this one for a long people say right i've got this one on repeat i love this song this is probably my favorite song i've ever made i've made a lot of songs no michael jackson prince had his pepperoni definitely you know because um when i listen to this song i always to be honest like i make a lot of my songs to remind myself if they're like almost like um a notepad of where i was at that time so i can remind myself not to lose myself so um with this do you bet song as well and a lot of other songs it's like um always remember to do better than you did yesterday do you know i mean always remember to do better even if you do wrong you can repent for them sins or whatever you did and then do better than you did then so that yeah this was this was important still this is an important rhythm for myself and it's my first ep ascension go and grab that ep ascension break right now inside your shoulders where can people find you yeah oh my socials um risky javen at gmail oh

always i'm i started with contemporary you know so i've always been dancing from a young age i was a lot of contemporary street dance african dance flamenco imagine that okay so i come from that kind of style i was doing on that west end and stuff like when i was younger so i've always come from that kind of background um so my physiques will stay good my flexibility hasn't been too crazy it goes at times but um i want to say from the time i entered the entertainment industry there was a long period of time when i was just smoking traveling drinking doing shows late night going in bed late waking up again doing press-ups whenever i wanted to pull ups and stretch whenever i wanted to um but i was winging it you know i'm saying i was actually winging it i think um my diet changed like in lockdown bro that's to be too honest with you i went through 10 years of like an unplanned lifestyle so like for from the first like 20 years of my life for my teenage years or my young years i was i'm more routined like i'd be playing football i'd be going to dance class like i'd be going to acting class i'd be going to music like them kind of things i'm coaching but then when i got into the entertainment industry like it all changed i started smoking i started smoking at 21. imagine what i'm saying i start smoking late cigarettes are weed no weed i've never smoked cigarettes okay imagine that that's crazy but um yeah um i started smoking weed at 21 and i'm socially though so i i was smoking so um but i wasn't smoking before that so what i realized that the mindset of smoking um how i was smoking anyway i wasn't smoking for like recreational uses like to chill out or to socialize i would just smoke to smoke because i like just because that's what everyone else is in the same industry like to get on the viable of everyone else i was around at the time and everyone else was doing harder drugs you have to like when i first came in i'm just going to keep it real disco dust
