Crafted by himself, Mayday hails from Birmingham. Mayday had been listening to grime from 10 years old and hadn't started writing lyrics until a decade later when he turned 20.
Taking inspiration from garage mixes his mother use to play infusing them with the 90s East Coast hiphop his father played in his early years, Mayday harnesses elements of both to craft his music.
Using music helps Mayday to articulate his life, he processes what he lives and weaves stories with such intricacy that it paints a picture. The tropes of grime music are rarely covered in his music as he aims to deliver tales from a personal perspective. Mayday is slowly carving out his own lane in the grime scene, one that is inspired by many but not easily imitated.
Starting to write lyrics in mid-2016, his style has taken shape as an artist who brings energy with a playful flair. With influences ranging from Garage to Dancehall to Grime, the compilation of these genres make Mayday an MC that is fuelled by a passion that matches his relentless ethic of self improvement.
The latter half of 2016 saw the release of Mayday’s debut project ‘Enigmatic Zodiac’. The debut was a solid entry point and represented Mayday at the time. After various singles through 2017, Mayday started 2018 with his second EP 'RAINWORLDKING' accompanied by the ‘Up In RainWorld’ documentary detailing the process and what went into the project.
