Fast Five: Cameron Whiley



When did you begin making music, and did you ever ponder a different career?

I began making music properly when I was 14, although I was writing bits for myself and other people when I was just 12 and starting secondary school. I did think about moving into a different career when I was dropped from my first label (Warners). I wanted to become a tattoo artist and became quite successful at it. But when given the opportunity to get back into music, I took the chance with both hands as it’s always been my biggest passion!

How would you describe your music?

I would describe my music as unique Ska infused Hip-Hop. I use rhythm and poetry and mix it with Ska to create funny Hip-Hop stories.

What have you been up to so far and what can we expect over the coming months?

I’ve been up to a lot lately, it’s been a busy few months doing interviews and working hard in the studio to create a follow up to my current single Reh Reh Reh which is released at the end of June.

If you could duet with anybody who would it be and why?

If i could duet with anybody, it would have to be Mac Miller as I’ve been a fan of his music for years! I like the way he puts a message across!

What’s your desert island disc and why would you take this one album?

It would have to be Bob Marley & The Wailers greatest hits album ‘Legend’. I wouldn’t even worry about being stuck with that playing!
