Brought up in Kingston Jamaica, it is no surprise that IQ has had the Bashment/Dancehall music culture engrained in him since birth. IQ brought the style and culture with him to the UK and spotted an opportunity to mix the Jamaican genre with gritty tones of Grime and UK Hip Hop.

“I took it upon myself to start creating content with a mix of the two genres, taking into considering terminology, time signatures, melody, chord progressions, to even down to the tone of my voice when vocalising.” – IQ

This approach has put him in good stead as “Tell A Paigon Try” (his first major single) has amassed over 300,000 views in less than 4 weeks. For now, this 17 year old from Lewisham has given South London another champion, gained international interest from millennials and pushed creativity into a whole new era. IQ is definitely one to watch this year.
