You know what it is yeah, the difference between being a singer, or a rapper, or an MC and an artist is that as an artist you should be able to vibe on different beats and create art no matter what situation you’re in, rather than just being able to do just one thing.
If you can only spray on a nostalgic grime beat, ok cool, you’re a grime MC but you’re not gonna get that far. If you’re hood rapper, everyone just knows you for talking about drugs and knives and guns – what else can do you do? Even singers, I like it when singers switch it up. They might be an R&B singer and jump on a garage track – I love that.
With me, I don’t want people to just think he’s a grime MC and wonder how I got on that Clams Casino track. I can do a lot more than you think. I want to hit all angles.
