A recent addition to the Elefant Traks family, Sky’High has emerged from the tough streets of inner-city Sydney with her first studio album, ‘Forever Sky’High’.
Congrats on the debut record; what emotions are you feeling now that it’s out and you can get on with the job of touring the record? Ready to rumble baby!
Both P-Money and Urthboy were executive producers on ‘Forever Sky’High’. What was it like to have two of the industry’s big hitters in your corner? It was an honour, I feel mad special. I'm a lucky alien I am.
How does ‘Forever Sky’High’ introduce you musically? I'm capable of rhyming over anything, anytime, any place!
Some people were surprised when Elefant Traks signed you; how does it feel to have one of the country’s most respected hip hop labels back your talents? It's awesome! I love it more and more each day!
What makes you different from other artists? I'm a trendsetter! I don't follow rules, I break them and recreate them.
The raw intensity of your sound and lyrics; how much has your upbringing in the housing commissions of Maroubra and Ultimo related to your musical style?
It has a fair bit to do with my music. I was influenced a whole lot growing up reppin’ that city to surf.
When did you have your first taste of Australian hip hop? MC Trey, ‘Reality Tales’ video on Rage in my early teens.
You supported both The Herd and 360 early in the year; how much did you learn from those tours? I learnt how to rock a show like pro!
Now you’re headed out on your own run of shows; what can punters expect? Expect the unexpected is what I tell em!
Voted best female MC in the 2011 Ozhiphop awards; that must’ve been nice? Hahaha, well it’s true, regardless of being voted best. I am the best, hate it or love it. Hahaha. I'm not joking.
Sky’High plays Coniston Lane Thursday July 5. ‘Forever Sky’High’ is available now.
