Number 13 (Interview)

Back again with yet another interview!! This time we get chatting to 1/3 of the group Cerberus, Number 13.

How long have you been making music?

I've been writing rap since I was 13 but in an American accent. I only switched to Scottish about a year and a half ago and only released my first track in April.

How many songs /albums have you released to date?
I have 9 songs out and more in the making.

Can you tell us about your new project and the background and inspirations behind it?
My newest project is a mixtape with a few top notch features on it, and I'm also working on a Cerberus (My crew) E.P.

How have you ended up in the music industry?
I started making songs because I wanted to make songs, simple as that. One time I mailed a song to Madhat and got a great response, which made me want to do it for real.

What do you think of the music industry at the moment?
I think it's going downhill with names like Lil Wayne and that Nick Minaj fella, but if you look hard enough you find some gems. Scottish hip hop is mostly all I listen to though, and it's awesome.

Who inspires you when you make your music?
Generally it's my life and whatever beat I'm listening to, but I get alot of influence from metal bands like Slipknot, Metallica, Machine Head, etc..

If you were one of the Seven Dwarves, which one would you be?
Dopey... I'll let that explain itself...

Who have you collaborated with so far in your Career?
Mainly my brothers, but I have collaborations with Lumanes, Wee D, Kayce One, Gard Feez and Madhat McGore in the making just now. :)
Who would you like to collaborate with in the future?
I'd love to get a Cerberus/DeadSoundZ collab on the go, it'd be a long track though. I'd really like to work with Werd and Mog as well.
What was the first album u bought?
Dr. Dre The Chronic.

Whats your favorite song at the moment?
Probably Gard Feez: Raiden Wins. Canny beat it!

If you had to sell your music collection tomorrow, what album would you leave in your drawer?
Kayce One/Toni Smoke 100th Monkey.

What do you think of TV music talent show competitions?
Bollocks. That is all.

What do you do when your not making music?
I read. A lot.

How many hats do you own?
Not one, hats don't suit me. lol

Whats your favorite takeaway?
Chicken Dhupiaza with big ol' chipates.

What's your favourite Swear word?

How many followers do you have on twitter?
106. :)

How do you feel about Scottish Hip Hop at the moment?
It's going major places and I'm just glad to be a part of it. All the talent is incredible.
