The rapper, Noisey UK's first digital cover star, opens up about the reality behind his much-hyped backstory so far.
His stamp sits all over the synthy, experimental UK rap that helped break Octavian. And how he’s making music in his own right.

Better grab yourself a hard hat for Sus’ chorus – we're premiering the video for the new collab below.
If you weren't at our stage on Friday... sorry. We had Octavian, slowthai, Ebenezer, Jaz Karis and Jofi Stone, and, in all honesty, it went off.
Uh... where else are you going to see Slowthai, Octavian and Jaz Karis all in the same building?
His latest track “Hands” solidifies this young British MC as *the* one to watch in 2018. So no pressure, lol.
