I know this guy irl, I'm not fond of rap music but I admire his ambition, and I'll admit he's fairly successful, getting to the finals of Live and Unsigned.

Even if I laugh when he starts talking about guns, we live in the West Midlands..

The guy writes all his own stuff, makes almost all of his music, last I checked his brother's done a few, and performed in some pretty popular clubs.
