Imagine if Peter Pan and the Lost Boys were forced to grow up in the real world knowing they neither belong or fit in, but they are embracing the change and making the most of it. The message behind the album is to always be yourself and never change who you are for anyone.
WHAT’S ONE THING YOU’VE LEARNED FROM SUPPORTING ARTISTS LIKE A$AP ROCKY AND CHILDISH GAMBINO, OR WORKING WITH GUYS LIKE 360?
I’ve learnt so much, but I guess the main thing is to aim to connect with as many people in the crowd as possible and always perform your heart out.
WHO’S YOUR DREAM COLLABORATOR?
My dream collaboration would be with Kanye West.
WHAT DO YOU ENVISION FOR THE FUTURE OF AUSTRALIAN HIP-HOP? WHAT’S ONE THING YOU WOULD CHANGE ABOUT ITS PRESENT?
I think with all the new Australian Hip-Hop talent out there, it’s changing the way we view hip-hop and opening the eyes and ears of the world to the creativity of Australians. The possibilities with the growth of Australian hip-hop really are endless! One thing I would change is the Aussie hip-hop mentality on features and collaborations, we don’t hear enough of our favourite Aussie rappers on the same tracks together.
WHAT’S ONE THING AUDIENCES CAN EXPECT FROM THE REMAINING HALF OF YOUR ENDLESS SUMMER TOUR DATES?
I’ll be performing alongside DJ Ziggy mixing our favourite songs and loads of remix’s from my debut album Mainland. People who come through should expect to have an awesome time partying with me. Ziggy and I get super hyped onstage.
WHAT DO YOU LOVE?
I love making music, performing, skating, movies, playing basketball and video games.
WHAT’S ONE THING THAT YOU CONSIDER MIRACULOUS?
What’s miraculous to me is that no matter where you are in the world, everybody loves music. I’m yet to meet someone who doesn’t.
