Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Motive”?
My single ‘Motive’ really speaks for itself its simply about going out with your friends trying to find somewhere to go or finding something to do just enjoying yourself.
Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?
No event in particular inspired me to write this song, I just wanted to go for a completely different sound I’m used to which you’ll notice when I release my mixtape. Each song has a different sound. I wanted to step outside the box and try something new.
Any plans to release a video for the single?
The video for ‘Motive’ is out now it’s available on YouTube on the Mixtape Madness channel for everyone to view.
How was the recording and writing process?
Working with Ayo is always straight forward and quick so it didn’t take me long probably about 30 minutes to write my verse however recording it took about an hour. The single was basically ready the same night we wrote it.
What role does Hackney play in your music?
Hackney is home, I grew up in east London so everything I rap about is practically from experiences I involved myself in from a young age up until now, however I’ve moved out of Hackney now.
Do you tend to take a different approach when you are collaborating with someone else rather than in your own?
Definitely, I like to listen to what their working with and then combine my sound with whoever I’m collaborating with.
Does the new single mean we can expect a new material – how’s that coming along?
My debut mixtape is practically finished hopefully at some point next month I’m able to release it as it’s almost done just adding some final touches to it.
Any tentative release date or title in mind?
Nothing is certified at this moment however everyone should keep an eye out for March as I’m planning on releasing everything next month I just don’t have an exact date in mind yet.
Any plans to hit the road?
As soon as the mixtape has been released I’m definitely going to hit the road and push my music out to the public as much as I can.
What else is happening next in Billions’ world?
As I mentioned before my mixtape is dropping soon so I’m focusing on working on that and also writing some new material for the rest of the year.
