I first met Boy Nash AKA Boy Nash Da Great when I seen him perform at the Allsortz Open Mic event in Richmix, Shoreditch. Although that was the first time me and Boy Nash had officially crossed paths, I previously had heard of his talent and music so I actually was approaching him as a secret fan. After chatting to Boy Nash I told him he reminded me of a UK Kendrick Lamar, which was interesting because he then confirmed he feels he has also been heavily influenced by J Cole. Who for the record is my favourite rapper of this generation, so its no surprise that I am highly recommending Boy Nash to your music collection. But don’t just take my word for it get to know more about the man behind the music in this extra special Boy Nash takeover…..

Why is music so important to you?
Music is important, it provides me with a sense of real freedom. It gives me a place to vent, and heal my pain. Music also gives me a sense of purpose. An adventure cause you never know what’s gonna happen. I mean music is life, every things got a rhythm or a beat, whether its irregular or regular. Also creativity is a part of me so I just enjoy it as well.
When you think about your biggest dreams, where does your mind take you?
My biggest dreams, I couldn’t even share that, they are like too big lol, like not in things like awards and stuff, I mean like changing lives, inspiring change. like to be real, half of the things we worry about don’t even matter. I would say my biggest dream would probably be happiness, like proper happy not up and down. Living more healthier
Hindsight’s a bitch, what do you wish you could of learnt earlier?
