Why did you want to take part in this competition?
The Rap Game UK brings a lot of opportunities. The fact alone that I get to perform in front of Krept and Konan and DJ Target. These are people that have been in the game for years now. I could learn off their experiences. I could learn off their mentoring and everything that they teach me. I can use that and better my craft. And also the fact the competition is aired in front of a wider audience - I get to gain more attraction from people and people will be intrigued by my work.

Why did you want to take part in The Rap Game UK?
I chose The Rap Game because I just think it’s such a great platform to get my message across to everyone else. It’s just - for me to tell everyone it doesn’t matter who you are or what you look like, you can still do what you wanna do. It just gives them a kind of greenlight as well cause they can be like, "ah I relate to her - I feel like I can do the same". It’s a great way of showcasing your talent and expressing your emotions. I just want people to see that. That’s why I chose The Rap Game.

What's your style of music?
My music can vary from hip hop, grime, to rave…. I can be singing one day… I don't like to confine myself. I'm a very free soul. It’s whatever comes to my mind. But mostly it’s hip hop or grime. As long as there’s a mic or MC so I can spit.

I chose The Rap Game because I feel like I fit the criteria. I’ve watched the first season and the second season and I feel like I’m able to do that. This is the correct platform for me to showcase that.

Why The Rap Game UK for you?
It’s an opportunity. It's more than an opportunity actually. It is game time. Playtime over for real. Yeah, it's, it's go time.
