I've been into hip-hop for as long
as I can remember. My cousin Reg introduced me to it when
I was just a kid and it's been a huge part of my life
ever since. I knew that the more I practiced and developed
my own style and beats – the better I'd become.
It feels natural to me, like breathing. Having the chance
to compete in the freestyle battle was a total honour. I mean,
sure I didn't win, but having DJ Damon encourage me

but what would I be giving up? If I sell out am I going to
be able to look myself in the eye and be proud of who I see?
Will Zoey still want to hang out with me, or will I be too
busy with my agent and all my new honey's?
I don't know what I'm supposed to do. I need
to think this decision through more before I decide one way
or the other. Thing is, Russell wants an answer now and I
don't know what that answer's gonna be...
