Remember when we were younger…? Kano, Craig David, D-Dark, Sizzla, Sweet Female Attitude, Purple Haze and Shola Ama…remember the fights on the back of the bus; house parties because we had no idea how to get fake ID’s for raves; Chinese print leggings and hoodie to match; the first wave of New Era Caps, Air Rifts and Pink Timberland’s; wearing dummies for fashion, gelling baby hair on our foreheads, jamming outside Dalston Shopping Centre or Hackney Town Hall waiting…for anything. Remember the babies born by girls just in time for GCSE’s; remember the babies lost to kitchen knives dripping with revenge and the need for acceptance…

If you remember, if you’ve forgotten, if you never knew, keep reading… Continue reading


After Oraclez.

31 May

Time: 22.19pm

Action: To stop myself from crying

Intention: To write.

I’ve been sitting here crying for the last 2 hours or so, and I’ve been trying to figure out why…I’d just gotten back from Oraclez in Wembley Arena, and although my set went well, and people really loved it, I didn’t like it very much.

Oraclez Today!

31 May

Hey Guys!!

This afternoon I will be supporting Fred Hammond, Canton Jones, Faith Evans, and a few other inspiring artists…I’m up early because sound check is early 🙂

I’m gonna try and do some video stuff so you can see us on the road and all of that jazz. Just waiting for my team to arrive and off we go.  Should be a great day, and I know loads of you are coming to support so I won’t feel too much like a fish out of water. I’m the only poet on the line up, and probably the only generally ‘odd’ person so encourage me! LOL I’ll probably make a twat out of myself at some point during the day so keep ’em peeled lol.

Hey Guys,

First of all I want all your sympathy…I have MAN-FLU. It’s really bad…my voice is sore 😦 , it’s kinda like my vocals chords have turned around, covered themselves with a duvet, and gone to sleep. I sound like I’m literally 100% talking out of my nose. I call it MAN-FLU because I feel extremely sorry for myself and currently believe I am the only person in the world with a cold this bad (that’s all that distinct man flu from the common cold) Continue reading
