Catching Up With Decay

Where are you from? Have your surroundings shaped you in a creative sense, and in what way?

I’m from Belfast, Ireland. We don’t really have much of a hip hop scene so there’s nothing for anyone to copy, I feel like that makes us all original to a certain degree.

What’s your background like?

I grew up in a normal Irish family, went to Catholic schools but none of us really cared about all that. I also lived in England for about 5 years, that was a cool experience.

Who are your top 5 favorite artists?

Kanye West will always be number one, Kendrick Lamar, Joey Bada$$, Nas, I’ve been really feeling Comethazine lately too.

What made you start making music?

Honestly, I can’t even remember… I started lowkey rapping when I was 15 and I’m 21 this year, but I grew up on Hip Hop and Motown so I guess it’s all I’ve ever known.

Who are your biggest influences?

I fuck with Kanye heavy when it comes to music and even fashion, also I love how he knows he’s the best and he’s not afraid to say it, that’s the way I feel like every musician should be.

What’s your favorite song at the minute?

Apart from my own song Five Bands (yes I know), I’ve been listening to Christian Dior Denim Flow by G.O.O.D Music from a couple of years ago. If you haven’t heard it I highly recommend it.

What keeps you going? How are you doing mentally?

Shit what a question, I guess you could say, family and friends, etc. The passion to make music and climb the ladder up to the very top. I had a couple of very rough months at the end of last year but the people around me keep me up. Also, I released my best song to date straight after.

How would you describe your style?

It’s forever changing but I like to think of myself as quite a versatile artist, I can rap over trap beats then throw it back to boom bap. I’m most definitely a lyricist though for sure.

What do you hope to accomplish in 2019?

I’m hoping to release my brand’s second clothing line very soon, I’m going to do some traveling and make some music in various creative countries. I’m going to do everything I can to make sure I murder all of 2020.
