Britain is not just One Direction, Little Mix, and James Bay. There's Skepta killing it, there's Krept and Konan killing it.
What I'm doing is British. It stems from the same culture as U.S. hip-hop, but the way we dress, the way we speak, the way we perform is so different. It's U.K. street culture.
I grew up in south London, and I remember watching the scene pop off in East and think, 'Ahhhh, I would love to be in Bow E3 right now spitting wid Wiley and Dizzee.'
I read so many books when I was a kid that I didn't even know were shaping me up.
I know a lot of grime artists started off on pirate radio, but I missed that era; I was way too young.
It was my dream to come to Oxford and study political science.
