The rapper/producer was born in London & raised by his mum after a brief interlude of living outside Paris before his parents separated (his Father being from Dominica & France).

His first release Lonely Road of The Dreamer got praise from many giants in the hip hop world like Isaiah Rashad & his collaborators, Clear Soul Forces, Loyle Carner & Frank Ocean, which led to him working on the 'Boys Don't Cry' Magazine'
Quickly becoming known for his renowned for his intricate flows & melodies and ability to talk honestly about depression, his presence as a live performer further lifted him as an artist, 2017 saw him travel to the US to meet & record with many of the artists he was inspired by and that appear on his debut album 'Sugar Like Salt' due for release on the 15th June 2018.

Track Name: Free Your Mind [Prod. Jowin]
[Chorus]
You know the beat won’t repeat
If the street don’t agree
You a son of their grief
Had enough of the beef
I’ma love more than me
Nearly jumped off the roof
Officer but don’t shoot

I’ma skank to the love
I’ma skank to the love
I’ma skank to the love
I’ma skank to the love
Ain’t addicted to drugs
I’m a victim to love
40 40 at lunch
Now I’m stuck in the mud
Turn to drink if shit ain’t looking up like fam…
Looking for my name a cup
I lost my way on a bus
I know the game rigged for us
It’s like yeah yeaaah yeahh

FREE YOUR MIND, FREE YOUR MIND
FREE YOUR MIND, FREE YOUR MIND
FREE YOUR MIND, FREE YOUR MIND

[VERSE 1]

Get the feeling that
I'm invisible
I know you watched it all
When this brotha fall
Fake can fuck a doll
We're more subtle bro
Hear this London flow
Yea I'm posted too
Won't Pick up the phone
Got too high off love
You should pace your lungs
We should make more noise
I'm a case in point
She a case of rye
Ima make her mine
Hope my liver fine
I'm paint a picture with my piss if they still don't comply
What a life
Wrote this leaning on a railing on the lower eastern side
But there's still Scars on my hands like I'm OJ blud
Made my first bag like I'm Dulce blud
But I'm still broke like an old game blud
Never admit but Miss my girl from my old lane blud
Drink a little water for these pained souls
Pour a little water on these baked roads
Just Too hot for some tamed growth
So Take a little bucket and make holes

[Chorus]
You know the beat won’t repeat
If the street don’t agree
You a son of their grief
Had enough of the beef
I’ma love more than me
Nearly jumped off the roof
Officer but don’t shoot

I’ma skank to the love
I’ma skank to the love
I’ma skank to the love
I’ma skank to the love
Ain’t addicted to drugs
I’m a victim to love
40 40 at lunch
Now I’m stuck in the mud
Turn to drink if shit ain’t looking up like fam…
Looking for my name a cup
I lost my way on a bus
I know the game rigged for us
It’s like…

[VERSE 2]
What's the lesson?
Puttin rubbers on sketches
What's the lesson?
Broken rubbers & necking
What the lesson?
Crack pipes on benches
What the lesson?
Our girls are missing
What's the lesson? what the lesson?!?
Call your lady
Hug your bredrin
We all depressed in some low-key presence
What's your essence if you running from questions?
But now I'm in LA baby
But they still won't pay me
Got the white Toyota with the hazard lights on, blowing weed on the i5 lately
Been away
Please don't blame me
Rep London till my feet just hate me
Seize the day
Piece of cake
Till you clock your phones your only decent mate
Seems I'm invisible no more (no more)
This rock I'm under bro
Weighs 100 stone no more (no more)
Switch the thunder dome
Leave this brotha lone to soar
I'm love more than you
I'm love more than me
They could shoot me to the floor but
Music is the floor of my dreams seems

[Chorus]
You know the beat won’t repeat
If the street don’t agree
You a son of their grief
Had enough of the beef
I’ma love more than me
Nearly jumped off the roof
Officer but don’t shoot

I’ma skank to the love
I’ma skank to the love
I’ma skank to the love
I’ma skank to the love
Ain’t addicted to drugs
I’m a victim to love
40 40 at lunch
Now I’m stuck in the mud
Turn to drink if shit ain’t looking up like fam…
Looking for my name a cup
I lost my way on a bus
I know the game rigged for us
It’s like yeah yeaaah yeahh

Track Name: Jazz Got Me feat. Mick Jenkins & Emile Martinez [Prod. Louis VI]
[Chorus]
Take a little bit a jazz and you got me
Know you wanna be at the be at the
Take bita jazz and got me

[VERSE 1 - LOUIS VI]
OK, Lemme tell you two things
There’s belief and a dream
You could be living so far but if belief if your car you could drive to the rings
Of Saturn
You know we made full of atoms
Don’t let your government try snatch them
Or Police when they draw the baton
We all Data or data
Put a hat on, or later
Wear more sunscreen cose you will get burnt if you don’t come so correct when you raise up
Read plato, while you play her
Fuck playdough know what your made of
Not woke yet, you better wake up
That won’t cut it like your mums razor

Stay grounded man
On the low when I’m on mountains man
Run through waterfalls & fountains fam
Ain’t no other way to surmount it man
Man, like…

Let me be
Evergreen
Heavenly
Centre piece
It’s meanta be
Forever free
You could be
A friend me
My enemy?
Never be
Better heed
The heavy deed
Your tellin me
Dead your piece
Spread the peace
So let me see

[Chorus]
Jazz and you got me
Know you wanna be at the, be at the
Jazz when you got me
Know you wanna be at the, be at the
Jazz when they got me
Know you wanna be at the, be at the
Jazz when they got me
(Jazz is the tonic for your soul)

[VERSE 2 – LOUIS VI]
Music is the only thing you need
I ain’t here to be
What you think of me
Don’t think I see all of their Inner greed
Love my peeps but for them My heart’s a Winter scene
If you feel it
Then take it
It ain’t always there for you to make it
Don’t be a pawn of their creation
Just because you’re mind is creative
Without music I’d be barmy
Gone mad from surviving a tsunami
Why did so many die and I’m still alive sitting drunk in this London Party
I get stressed out but not stress-in
Got taught there is always a lesson
Don’t watch others it’ll do your head in
No sourdough for you Bread bin

Stay grounded man
On the low when I’m on mountains man
Run through waterfalls & fountains fam
Ain’t no other way to surmount it man
Man, like…

Let me be
Evergreen
Heavenly
Centre piece
It’s meanta be
Forever free
You could be
A friend me
My enemy?
Never be
Better heed
The heavy deed
Your tellin me
Dead your piece
Spread the peace
So let me see

[Chorus]
Take a little jazz and you got me
Know you wanna be at the be at the
Jazz and when they got me
Know you wanna be at the, be at the
Jazz when they got me
Know you wanna be at the, be at the
Jazz when they got me

[LOUIS VI + MICK JENKINS]
Let the lyrics flow and you got seas
Little bit of soul and you got seeds
Use all your mind till you got trees
Keep it shaded not shady, now your plot breathe…

[VERSE 3 – MICK JENKINS]

Then you hit the dro till you not need
Now you Socrates
Smoke and mirrors
All that shit just air space like Socrates
All I see isosceles
I been so obtuse with all my business ventures
Now I’m coping properties and assets
Still probably do the money phone
I ain’t never seen a money tree
Still catch me at the corner store
Never lacking I’m on cactus
Never lean and still I actavis trip
How you coping with the madness?
How you speaking to the masses?
All I really see is matchstick men
Kicking that bullshit yea
And I’m seeing hat tricks man
But I ain’t wanna fool wid
I come with the fool zip
Then empty a full clip
If you stuck on some cool shit
I ain’t never been a nigga that’s gon’ tell you no lie

[Chorus]
Take a little jazz and you got me
Know you wanna be at the be at the
Jazz when they got me
Know you wanna be at the, be at the
Jazz when they got me
Know you wanna be at the, be at the
Jazz when they got me
