HHK: Thanks for speaking to us Deadly. For the readers who may not be familiar, can we have a brief introduction?
Deadly: Well… my name is Deadly and I’m a female lyricist from East London I have been making music for up to seven years now I currently have a mixtape out entitled ‘ 1st Place, Greatest Kid’.
HHK: How important was it to leave M.I.C to identify you as an individual artist to progress your career? And do you still keep in touch with the other members?
Deadly: Yes I do keep in touch with some of M-I-C we left on good terms so the contact is still there although every really does there own things now. I think it was extremely important for me leave M-I-C to fly solo literally and build myself as an artist with personal time. I went from 8 bar tracks and sharing beats to finding my own resources and making my own tracks I depended on my own thinking by force. I believe whilst in a crew one can unknowingly get into a comfort zone.

Our friends over at The Hip Hop Chronicle managed to sit down with college rap-star Asher Roth during his time in London. The pair spoke about the “Sour Patch Kids”, his passions outside of music, and who would be enrolled and leading a “Hip Hop college”. Furthermore, when asked about producers working on his next project, Asher grins when the names Pete Rock and 9th Wonder are mentioned, which I think everybody would agree, could be a great collaboration.
