There’s a Devil Part 1 - which a lot of people need to hear - which was about a friend of mine who was in a situation in a relationship that I didn’t necessarily approve of and it was an experience I wrote about. Devil Part 2 was about when I was about 16, I was with someone and, being 16, I thought I was in love. Like, I thought this is the real deal and you put everything into it. And then to be broken-hearted, it was something that I can probably continually write about for the next 20 years because that feeling is - although it’s really depressing - it’s quite inspiring and a lot of people have been through it. So, yeah, it was a genuine experience. I find when I’m writing stuff, if it’s from experience, it’s the easiest thing to write.
The tune Dreaming Of on my mixtape IDI-UH-OH! is about my missus. I’ve been with my fiancé now - I got engaged, like, two weeks ago - it's about her, because when I’m on the road and I’m away a lot, you know, sometimes she’s at home on her own and that and I just wanted her to know that I’m thinking of her. So, when I’m away and stuff… because, you know, a lot of people think we’re out partying, there’s women everywhere and all that kind of stuff. But, you know, I keep it real, like, that’s my missus of nine years and I love her, so, real talk.
In Get Away that tune was all about me expanding from being just a Garage MC and what people knew me as. And when I referenced "In Control" that was the record label that me and Control-S were putting Garage music out on - so that was In Control Records. So, it’s like now I’m saying we’re moving on from that and I’m not Majestic MC, I’m Majestic. So, yeah, it is a subtle name change there.
The whole 888 thing which was on my Twitter tags and it was on my Instagram and stuff, I done a lyric in a tune called Giving Up - which is on my first mixtape, which was also called 888. I went "888 because I’m two steps ahead of negative forces messing with your head." So, referencing back to 666 being an iconic number of the devil, I’m denouncing all evil so to speak, and the number 8 is really massive in Japan and it’s a really, sort of, number for good luck and good fortune and prosperity. So, that’s why I chose 888.
