Born in 1994 and raised on the streets of Tottenham, Headie One grew up inspired by US rappers such as Future and French Montana. He surrounded himself with others who also needed an outlet to express their take on life and truly fell in love with music. By the end of 2011 after dropping solid verses in songs such as ‘Youngers From Farm and ‘Bang For My Set’ as well as some freestyles with fellow Tottenham affiliates, there was a real buzz on the streets around this young rapper. That led him to release his first mixtape ‘Headz Or Tails’ with lead single ‘On Sight’ becoming a street anthem.
Continuing the huge success of 2018, Headie started 2019 on an even bigger high, making UK chart history by becoming the first drill rapper to enter the Top 10, reaching number 6, with his track 18 Hunna ft Dave.
