Q&A WITH: SCAR

British born artist SCAR is a master of mixing heavy metal and rap genre. As he calls it ‘trap-metal’ works better than you might think.

WHY NAME SCAR?

There’s no other name to call myself. It is perfect to describe me as an artist. Big part of that played the Bible, it’s always been an inspiration for me. I’m not religious but that’s where the lord association comes from. Scar has a lot of meanings, even the character in Lion King to was cut and had it permanently.

HOW HAS LIVING IN WOLVERHAMPTON, UK AFFECTED YOUR MUSIC?

Well, humble I’d say. My town is not a shithole, just like every city it has good and not so good areas. It’s just not popular. Some member from Led Zeppelin are from here but other than that, it’s low-key. It’s definitely helped me to stay focused with no distractions and be inspired.

WERE YOU A STAND OUT GROWING UP?

I was definitely seeking attention and was a class clown for sure (laughs). I forced myself to be liked so I had to addapt and change my personality and shit like that. I was always the odd one. Even if people didn’t see it, I was always the odd one in my head. Does that make sense?

WHAT WAS YOUR SITUATION BEFORE YOUR GLOBAL SUCCESS?

I was down as f*ck before I was making music, I really wasn’t in a good place. It was the music that gave me that shift, uplifted me, I finally got my voice back. I’m only here to speak my truth and if it can help you, that’s cool. I’m not here to be this guy ‘look up to me and everything will get better’. That’s just simple me, take it or leave it, hate it or love it, I’m just here…

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR MUSIC?

It up to you how you decide man, I don’t really label my art like that. That’s something I’ll never do. I just like to keep things fresh and different. It’s something new and you haven’t heard of it yet so I don’t have a name for it. You can decide whatever you want. My music is horrible and horrible is beautiful. It’s raw and emotional.

WHAT’S THE COLOUR YOU DESIRE THE MOST?

Black for sure. Makes my life easier, I don’t really like dressing myself. I don’t like to decide what to wear. I can’t be fucked around to thing every morning what to wear. I like to look dope and fresh but to not waste my time or energy on that. Black is so easy.

WHY MADE IN HELL?

This world is a hell. Just look around man so many people are fucked up, it’s up to you to change that.


WHAT’S THE COLOUR YOU DESIRE THE MOST?

Black for sure. Makes my life easier, I don’t really like dressing myself. I don’t like to decide what to wear. I can’t be fucked around to thing every morning what to wear. I like to look dope and fresh but to not waste my time or energy on that. Black is so easy.

WHAT ITEMS IN YOUR WARDROBE DO YOU DESIRE THE MOST?

Ah man, I’m so simple, just literally half of my shit is Nike tracksuit have lots of casual shit in my house, mostly black colour. I do like to have fresh pair of jeans, Balmain is always my go to.

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST DESIRE IN LIFE?

I just want to be happy man. I’m simple you know, as long I have simple things sorted out and having my people around me, I’m good. I do have some goals in music but it’s too soon to talk about that. Like, that shit is huge, my goals are fucking crazy (laughs).

WHAT’S WITH WEARING A FACE MASK?

It’s like a message that it doesn’t matter who I really am behind this mask. The face is not important. I want to give you the music, pay attention to that. I’m also mysterious and quite antisocial so probably some defensive mechanism. It’s different when I perform live, I really give people myself. It’s also amazing when you wear a mask, no one speaks to you (laughs).
