Headie One, the first artist to emerge from the Drill scene with a UK Official Chart top #10 single, rise has been fast but not without validation every step of the way. The 25 year-old rapper born and raised on the streets of Tottenham, one of the figureheads of the burgeoning scene, drew inspiration from the smooth melodics of southern and east coast Hip Hop to create his signature bouncy flow coupled with his acute wordplay. He surrounded himself with others who also needed an outlet to express their take on life and truly fell in love with music. In a way Headie’s rise seemed fated, as though he was destined to be one of the genre’s forefathers – like Wiley with grime, fellow Londoner Giggs with road rap, or So Solid Crew with UK garage – and has done so with a versatility that means, though he is centred in the drill scene, Headie also easily manoeuvres between the other aforementioned, UK based genres and his aspirations are to showcase his art to the widest demographic possible.
By the end of 2011 after dropping solid verses in songs such as ‘Youngers From Farm’ and ‘Bang For My Set’ as well as some freestyles with fellow Tottenham affiliates, there was a real buzz on the streets around this young rapper. That led him to release his first mixtape ‘Headz Or Tails’ with lead single ‘On Sight’ becoming a street anthem.
During this period he grew even more as an artist by studying different types of music which resulted in him developing the unique flow and instinctive ad-libbing that we know today. He went on to collaborate with fellow OFB member RV on three mixtapes; ‘Sticks & Stones’ ‘Drillers & Trappers’ and more recently, ‘Drillers & Trappers II’. These bodies of work really pushed Headie One to the forefront of the Drill rap scene in the UK. It is not surprising that fans eagerly awaited the release of his solo mixtape ‘The One’. Loaded with high calibre features from the likes of Section Boyz, RV, M Huncho and Loski, this was his best body of work to date, with the lead single ‘Golden Boot’ still remaining a drill anthem.
