Miss Radcliffe Meets......Gilly

After hearing "Freedom" for the first time, I became a instant fan of the Bristol Rapper.
....So I thought I'd check him out.

First off...tell me a little about yourself, Who is Gilly?

My answer would be Gilly is Gilly lol.. Well, that's what people always say. I'm from Bristol and I've been making music (seriously) for the last 3 years. I have big plans and ambitions.

Miss R: When did you first put pen to paper and write your first rhyme?

I was about 13. I can even remember the verse. I was at my nans house and it was a Garage bar. I started out writing to House and Garage then moved to Grime and eventually on to Drum and Bass.

Miss R:  How would you describe your music?

I would describe my music as just real. It's just me doing me.

Miss R: Who in Hip Hop has influenced your music?
I would say Tupac, DMX, Eminem and Nas. I'd also even say Jay Z for his entrepreneurial endeavours on the business side of music.
Miss R: I absolutely love the track you recently did with Klashnekoff "Freedom" How did that collaboration come about?

Kinda organically, We would link up as friends and kinda reason about life, like minded individuals. Obviously still being a fan of Klash's music I had a beat that my producer Van dam made and I thought he would fit on, I played it to him and he was like "hmmm yeah but it's bait".. lol So randomly I played a next beat from van dam and from there its a rap. 


Miss R:  Do you have a album/mixtape to follow?

Yeah.. I have an EP due to drop which features the "Freedom" track with a November release date. Album to follow in 2015. 

Miss R: What's has been your biggest achievement so far?

My biggest achievement would be everything I've done to date musically, as it's all been independent the whole way and I will continue to be self made  and self paid :)

Miss R: What other interest do you have outside of music?

I would just say living life, gaining new experience, memories and wisdom

Miss R: Who else from the Bristol Hip Hop scene should I be looking out for?

Look out for  Buggsy, Split Prophets, King Aggi, Ellis, Jibsta Bristols finest.

Thank you Gilly!!

Miss Radcliffe Meets......Boom The Bomb

I'm a sucker for the old skool and I absolutely LOVE this guy right here..

Introducing Boom The Bomb from Ohio, bringing that back that 90's flava.

Miss R: How did the name 'Boom the bomb' come about?

Well actually I came up with the nickname Boom for myself which is a expression on how to go at Life. Then Someone asked me one day why they call you Boom? And being funny I said cause I'm the Bomb, and that's how I got my name.

Miss R: You started rapping at the age of 14...Who were you main influence at that time?

Well when I started rhyming at 14 I was listening to Lil Wayne. He was hot when I was 14. But also I was listening to a lot of Big L & Biggie.

Miss R: For those who may not have heard your music, how would you describe your style?

I like to describe my style as 90's Hip-Hop. OG. BoomBap . Retro type of style.

Miss R: Do you produce your own music too?

I have two producers, HedMac & In Tune June. They make beats & engineer my songs.

Miss R. You dropped your debut mixtape earlier in the year 'Detonation' I've heard it and love it!
'Rap Ma$ter'
'Selfish' ft Belair
'Make it Dope'
'Still Summer' & "1987" are my favourite tracks...I mean I love the whole mixtape. Do you have a favourite?

Aww, thanks. I definitely appreciate it. It's actually the first Mixtape I ever put out. Straight Hip-Hop. I'm glad you like it. Much Love.

And, yeah I'll say 1987, Rap Ma$ter, Text Message, & Cool Nxggaz are some of my favs. Although I love the whole tape too haha.


Miss R: What are you working on right now?

Right now I'm working on DETONATION 2 MIXTAPE set to drop very soon. Bring Mad Flava To the game. I even got some Hip-Hop vibes for the ladies too so be on the lookout for that, D2.

Miss R: What has been your biggest challenge as a independent artist so far?

I'll say just getting money to finance everything, such as studio time, videos, flyers, etc. 

When you a independent artist , you have to do things yourself , you have to hustle twice as much than the average person , you have to invest in yourself & it can be very challenging when u still have to deal with the world & bills. 
Miss R: Are you a fan of UK Hip Hop?...would you ever want to collab with a UK artist?

Not really big on UK Hip-Hop, but I'm down to do music with anybody that's positive & down to do music with me. 

Miss R: Do you have any shows coming up?

Umm yeah , Actually Oct. 22nd I have a Open Mic performance in Harlem, NY.

Miss R: Do you have any other interests/talents outside of music?

Yeah I'm damn near a pro at every sport lol, I do fashion, art, & I'm good at making people laugh.

Miss R: Are there any artists who you would you like to work with in the future?

Yeah maybe Joey BadAss, Kendrick Lamar, Currensy, Dom Kennedy, Bring Rakim back out, Tribe Called Quest, Wu-Tang man the list goes on in down to work with anybody dope yo.

Miss R. What are your long term music career goals?

I'll say one of my biggest goals is to just make a impact on Hip-Hop around the World & knowing I did it by being Positive & Being Myself.

Miss R: You started your first rap group at the age of 15. Tell me more about it.

I started my first rap group at 15 with a friend from school and another from the neighbourhood. Two popular guys in Jr. high decided to get together and run the neighbourhood. The group lasted a summer and I went on to start another called 'No ?' with another neighbourhood homie. Those were the days! 

Miss R:  Growing up, what type of music did you listen to?

I listened to everything that was soul.. from The Jackson's to Earth Wind & Fire up until Run DMC and LL Cool J hit the scene. It was all hip hop from then on. But I love every genre of music that I can understand and get exposed to. 

Miss R: How would you describe your style?

For those that  have never heard my music , I would describe my style as eclectic & unpredictable. Some days I'm Hip-Hop, other days I'm writing a rock  or love song, but everything I write and record touches the soul.

Miss R: What has been your greatest opportunity in your musical career so far?

That's a very hard question, but I'm gonna say my greatest opportunity is at my door right now.
I've done a lot  TV, radio, blogs and released records and toured. Each opportunity has taken me to a higher level.
Industry wise, I'd say what's in the works now is the greatest and I can't spill the beans just yet.

Miss R: What are you working on right now?

Right now, I'm working on multiple projects. 3 albums, 2 books and a clothing line.
One cd project is set for February 2015. A album entitled "Valentine's Day" I don't have any dates on the other release, but I'm a entrepreneur so expect that I'm working and adding more to the plate as I flow.

For the rest of the year I'll be doing shows locally and preparing for a overseas tour 2015. 

Miss R: Who are your top 3 Hip Hop Artist?

3. 6lack of Team Phlyte 

Miss R: What is your favourite Hip Hop lyric?

You got me with this one because I have way too many favourites. Seriously!

I'm interested in owning a lot of property. That's a huge interest of mine and I host a lot of shows and artist showcases.

Miss Radcliffe Meets......Chairman Maf

Miss R: You've been making music for over ten years.  How did you get into music production? Do you remember the first beat you made?

I've been a musician since I was a kid and I play quite a few instruments. I have a lot of musicians in the family. I still have the first beat I ever made, It wasn't that bad really, looking back on it!

Miss R: Growing up, what music did you listen to?

Everything really. I think the best producers always have a pretty eclectic music taste. The only genres I don't like are Metal and Country and Western, although Dolly Parton's "Jolene" is a TUNE!!

Miss R: How would you describe your style?

Soulful, melodic, cinematic instrumental hip hop

Miss R: What inspires your music?

I just like any music that set's a mood and has a bit of atmosphere,  something people will listen to more than once. I'm pretty competitive too.

Miss R: Have you thought about becoming a rapper or written any lyrics to go with your beats?

Yeah but I'd be pretty bad lol. I've never written any lyrics, but I've have good rhythm..don't tempt me.. you'd regret it..

Miss R: Looking back from when you first started out, how have you developed your craft?

My production technique is still pretty lo-fi and that's how I like it. 
I've avoided learning too much technically.. I've just learned how to layer beats to make them a bit more complex and less repetitive.

Miss R: You teamed up with Cyclonious  for the 'Hostile Leadership' EP (which I love by the way) Are there any other artist you wish to collab with?

I've worked with Dirty Dike, Kingpin, Skillit, Nate, Chima Anya, Skuff  and loads more. To be honest I'm more focussed on the instrumentals , but if I had to say someone it'd have to either be Chester P or Kyza in the UK.

Miss R: What are you working on right now?

Just getting ready to rerelease my debut album 1976 on a limited cassette through Brain Food records (get it here: CHAIRMAN MAF - 1976 - (ALBUM) (CASSETTE SAMPLER), by CHAIRMAN MAF - 1976) before releasing my 2nd instrumental album "Paint" through the same label. Also loads of MC stuff to come   

Miss R: What has been your greatest achievement so far?


Miss R: Who are your top 3 Hip Hop Artist?

Madlib, Dilla, Little Brother

Miss R: Do you have any other interests/talents outside of music?

I like to knit ;)
