West London’s own Incisive is a forward thinking musician who excels not only in rapping, but also producing the tracks on which he spits. He sets himself apart from the mainstream by rapping about the trials and tribulations of the everyday, and distancing himself from stereotypical topics like drugs and crime. Bringing forth chilled, feel-good vibes that can be listened to on repeat throughout the day, Incisive is just different.
Incisive recently released a collab (with Shakka) titled ‘Push’. And, Julie Adenuga from Beats 1 described it as bringing the sun out, and added that it is a “baseline for your waist line.” ‘Push’ is infused with an infectious feel good Hip Hop beat combined with a splash of mellow R&B sound, as provided by Shakka’s vocals.
In the following interview, Incisive speaks exclusively to GoodMoMusic about his past achievements, current ventures and plans for the future:
Thanks for joining us today Incisive. Let’s get straight into the questions!
Positive, Melodic, Hiphop.
Q.5 Would you compare yourself to any other artist?
I wouldn’t WANT to but when you are describing yourself to someone, the only way you can is to compare yourself….to someone…I’d say Common, meets Kanye… meet Common lol
Q.6 If you could pinpoint one thing which inspires your music, what would it be?
Just real life. I stopped a long time ago, making music just for FUN like as an everyday chore. Songs are very organically made. Real stuff that comes to me that I write down at the time. I think it’s all inspired by real life things
Yea I always think about hearing the song LOUD on BIG speakers when I’m producing it and when I’m mixing the record. When I’m performing it, sometimes I zone out and I’m listening to how the bass knocks in the venue – proud of my own mix etc. Best part is when people are singing back music you made in your bedroom. Its surreal – every time.
Q.8 What do you feel is unique about English rap?
I think every country’s music would be unique because of the environment. We speak from different and unique experiences. I think we speak with different and unique accents, make different and unique beats and approaches to music. It’s US. I love it.
Q.9 You have a degree in law. Could we see you being incisive in the courtroom some time in the future?
Haha – Never. I went to Uni because my parents expected it – It wasn’t even a question of are you going? It was where are you thinking of going? By the end of first year, I KNEW I wasn’t going to do Law BUT I knew it made sense to have a degree and I had started so I figured I’d finish – Wanted to make my parents proud too I guess.
Q.10 Finally, does music feature heavily in your plans for the future? Or do you see a point where you may retire from the game?
