Sonnyjim is a name most of you on the UK scene will have heard, for those that aint,(shame on you) check out his trading standards mixtape or the copious amount of free downloads and video's he has done. With Releases on Eatgood Records imminent we caught up with him for a quick Q&A.
Flyspittin: thanks for talkin to us, so what have you been up to this year so far?
Sonnyjim: Just grindin puttin in that work got so much going on, jugglin different projects, i dropped purple patch 3 at the start of the year along with a couple no budget hd videos got purple patch 4 comin out on march 7th and just finishing up my Álbum with apatight aswell as finishin up an Álbum for a release in autralia with obese records and i got the workin numonics ep with sleaze out april 18th.
FS: Nice, So what do you think of the UK scene today compared to a few years ago?
S: Probably much worse, dying off as far as live circuits go but the fans are definatley still out there and people are still buying music but its just a whole different ballgame its not that much different to two years ago five years yes, but its always changing so fast.
FS: As a veteran of jump-off and end of the weak its fair to say you have done the battle thing, will we be seein you battle again in dont flop?
S: Doubt it, i want a tidy amount of doe to do it, its a lot of prep, im busy doing other important shit, i done did that, but you never know, i watch that shit sometimes and feel to get back in the ring but it aint me right now.
FS: you have done tracks with loads of artists from all over and worked with some of the best producers out at the moment, who has been your favorite to work with?
S: My favourite people who i have worked with are always the studio sessions where we made the joints on the spot, I did some work with AG from DITC at Chemos lab we did a session there that was good, trying to live of trading standards with Skrein that was dope. God complex with Jehst, running late with IRS...bare...as far as producers my favourite producers to work with Kelakovski Apatight and Mphazes, cos they dont fuck about.
FS: Is there anyone apart from yourself you think is set to get bigger this year?
S: Rtkal, Action Bronson, Dom Kennedy, Currensy...well i hope they do anyways
FS: If you could work with one artist in the world and money wasnt an object who would you want to collab with?
S: Kanye or Premier or Jay Z
FS: What can we look forward to from Sonnyjim in the next few months?
S: This changes everything LP with Apatight, An EP with Kelakovski, and a 3 track EP with a producer from Canada called Elaquent. And the purple patch EP out 7th march and workin numonics EP with sleaze 18th april. Thats what im concentrating on for the rest of the year.
