She’s 21 😱 throwback to when all my tattoos were easily hidden 😂 go listen to my new songs w/ @nine8collective “TREFLIP” , “ALL DEEZ” and the rest of the “NO SMOKE” tape and maybe I might drop some more music for ya 💋 link in bio
OUR GROUP PROJECT “NO SMOKE” IS OUT NOW @nine8collective 🖤 tears in my eyes - so many moments on this Tape are genuine memories of growing from a teen to a young adult with my best friends. Started writing some of these songs when I was 18/19 - finna b 21 now... 🖤 I listened to the full project back to front one more time again last week and I clocked that I genuinely haven’t heard a project like this come out of the UK in a very long time that has just as many powerful female voices/mc’s as there were male, perspectives from north, west and south, British kids, Caribbean kids, Irish, Indian, full English and Somali all on one project - and that wasn’t even intentional or done to prove a point - it’s just a product of growing up in the city, climbing n learning with these lot...and having dumb fun doing it...you can hear all these conversations between us through the music on this tape - ENJOY 🖤
performing in Brighton this weekend was the most wholesome experience, thank you @notion and @greatescapefest for having me perform alongside the family @nine8collective !
