EERF EVIL


Who are you?

My names eerf evil, I'm a rapper/creative/social activist. In my daytime I work with young people for a youth charity called 'Leap confronting conflict' and I am an avid Arsenal fan. 

Your background?

My background stems from my parents being from Scotland and Ghana, whilst growing up myself in Croydon. 

Originating from South London I use my experiences growing up to influence the content of his music. Growing up in Croydon taught me a lot about myself, I knew from an early age that I wanted to discover more about life and different environments. Through my journeys I have been blessed with going to places like Peru, Ghana, Romania, etc and seen a different way of life and thinking. I use these experiences and the experiences of growing up in South London to direct my musical ventures. 

Your creative vision?

Im aiming to create a sustainable career in the music industry not only as a rapper but an influencer. I love the work I do with young people and for me that wont change. However to be given a platform to spread a message of getting more out of life is the vision. One of my lyrics 'This is calculated outcomes... Martin had a dream imagine living without one' encapsulates the idea that we all have dreams and it is up to us to make them happen.

Your inspiration?

My inspirations that have helped me have been from family members like my brother who had led a very negative lifestyle and being my biggest inspiration I followed down the same path. However seeing him grow and have a family and change his direction helped me to see more than what my environment would let me. His passion for people filtered down to me and a dream is to see everyone grow and getting the best out of life. I also have to put down artists such as J Cole/Loyle Carner/Common/Akala, inidivudlas who stand for more than just rapping but also have a message behind what they say and project. 

Proud moments?

I think my proudest moment to date would be selling out our EP Launch and seeing the amount of people believe in what were doing touched me a lot this year. Before that there were two things I was extremely proud of. As a young boy my dream was to be a footballer, and I made it to academy level and played against Arsenal at the Emirates stadium. Secondly was when I decided to go to university and study Psychosocial studies, and knuckling down I came out with the highest grade in my class, and there wasn't much that could top that.
