Info

Headie One, the first artist to emerge from the Drill scene with a UK Official Chart top #10 single, rise has been fast but not without validation every step of the way. The 25 year-old rapper born and raised on the streets of Tottenham, one of the figureheads of the burgeoning scene, drew inspiration from the smooth melodics of southern and east coast Hip Hop to create his signature bouncy flow coupled with his acute wordplay. He surrounded himself with others who also needed an outlet to express their take on life and truly fell in love with music. In a way Headie’s rise seemed fated, as though he was destined to be one of the genre’s forefathers – like Wiley with grime, fellow Londoner Giggs with road rap, or So Solid Crew with UK garage – and has done so with a versatility that means, though he is centred in the drill scene, Headie also easily manoeuvres between the other aforementioned, UK based genres and his aspirations are to showcase his art to the widest demographic possible
