AFTER his breakthrough single ‘Barking’ set the charts alight in 2017, with huge success across the globe, Ramz is the latest London-based rapper to hit the big time.
“Still adjusting but enjoying every single moment of it”
At the age of just 21, Ramz has seen his huge hit single ‘Barking’ go platinum, an incredible achievement for any artist, and something that he hopes will inspire those thriving to make a name for themselves.
“It was so surreal. To be a part of a group within the scene who have achieved such a feat is something I don’t take for granted. To know your song has hit over 600,000 copies is something I hope others can take and motivate them starting out that anything is possible.”
The success he has enjoyed has not been taken for granted, with Ramz remaining humble about being flung in at the deep end at such a young age.
“It’s something you dream of and only when you’re in it, you realise the sacrifices and commitments needed which is challenging, but something I’ve become used to and really grateful I can call it my job now and wouldn’t want to change that.”
As one of the hardest working rappers in the UK scene, Ramz is constantly thriving to strengthen his already impressive bank of songs, a process that stems from those events that impact him the most.
“With me it’s anytime something significant happens in my life I feel I need to express it.”
This year’s TRNSMT Festival lineup features a strong showing of rap artists, each boasting a unique take on one of the most diverse sounds in music, this is testament to the heath of the UK rap scene, with Ramz himself is proud to be a part of.
“The level is pretty high and everyone is working to raise the bar constantly which is healthy for the scene”, giving a specific nod to his fellow King Tut’s Powered by Utilita Stage artist IAMDDB, who is set to be one of his TRNSMT highlights.
With TRNSMT marking Ramz’s first appearance north of the border, the artist gave a short insight into what the TRNSMT crowd can expect from his performance.
“New music, more energy and it’s my first time in Scotland, so will make it one to remember.”
