South London rapper Cristale has linked up with SK Vibemaker for an in-depth conversation about her journey and career so far.
Cristale describes her success as “a blessing from God”, especially since she never planned on becoming a rapper when she was growing up. Interestingly enough, her childhood dream was to become an architect or a footballer.
However, as she mentiones in the interview, music has always been present in her life as she wrote her first rap with her uncle when she was only three. From there, she started getting into rap battles with the boys in the playground in primary school, started writing poetry in secondary and, in year 7 she even won a slam poetry competition against the whole school.
Since then she became “the poetry kid” and started mentoring people and speaking at assemblies in 6th form, only to pick up on music after.
