McTee (Interview)

We got talking to newly signed Complex artist McTee about his views on Hiphop in Scotland!!

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN MAKING MUSIC?

I started writing lyrics and stuff when i was 16 for a laugh with my mate Kyle Reyes,
but it wasn't until late 2010 i released a proper track and carried on from there.

HOW MANY SONG / ALBUMS HAVE YOU RELEASED TO DATE?
I have released around 20 songs i think, and i haven't released any albums or anything YET!!
but i have an EP on the way named 'The Spaceman EP' so watch for that POWW!!.

CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT YOUR NEW PROJECT AND THE BACKGROUND INSPIRATION BEHIND IT?
I'm working on an EP 'The Spaceman Ep, Its just really stories about what im going through at this moment and time in my life and that's really it.

HOW HAVE YOU ENDED UP IN THE MUSIC INDUSTRY?
Iv always liked music from a really young age and it wasn't really set on one genre of music i was listening to everything,
 but i started getting older and rap stood out and i really liked it, then i met Kyle Reyes and we started writing lyrics
 and messing about with freestyles all the time, and then eventually released a track and more and more and now i'm
 with Complex Events! POWW!!

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE MUSIC INDUSTRY AT THE MOMENT? 
To be honest its a bit shit! hundreds of artist that should never ever ever be on TV, but there is some ok stuff aswell.. sometimes.
