Taking Over

Featured artist: Presley aka Kronik – Taking Over

As part of our ongoing “Raps New Generation” series, today we sat down with the upcoming underground artist Presley aka Kronik from Gillingham to talk about his recent music, his upcoming projects, his career advice and his overall experiences being in the music industry and he did not disappoint…

Thanks for taking the time to talk with us, Presley aka Kronik! Let’s go back to the beginning of your career. How did you decide to become an artist?

Presley aka Kronik: I used to listen to my older brothers rap albums by 2 Pac, Biggy Smalls & Snoop Dogg. When I got older I started rapping with Lyrical Kilah. I met Bretto From The Ghetto in 2005 & started to make my own music. I have worked with artist all over the World.

I need 2 billion pound to promote my album.

What about concerts? Do you play live?

I am talking to several management companies and look to start performing in 2019. I used to perform & I recently got offered £500 to perform but they only wanted me & Blazer & we didn't want to drop Venom.

Best punchline you ever wrote?

You might see me on a poster or in a stolen motor

What are you currently working on? Did you release something in the past?

I'm releasing my new album Badman with 15 tracks in a couple of weeks. I also released Badaman with 10 tracks at the start of this year.

Last but not least: Would you sign a record contract with a major label?

I would if they let me decide how I want to put my music out. It would be easier to work with Dizzee Rascal & Eminem but they take most the money so the more you make the more they take.

Any last words?

MC Geronimo (R.I.P), Lady Enigma, DJ Venom, MC Blazer & Lyrical Kilah.
