While some rappers opt for tongue-twisting acrobatics, cramming in words a mile-a-minute, Quadri, takes a different approach. The South London rapper takes cues from the likes of Giggs, adopting a prowling delivery to give a minimal lyric, maximum effect.
When it comes to production, Quadri takes notes from Timbaland, recreating his beats as monophonic and polyphonic structures. Having studied music production and installed a music studio in his home, the rapper is a dab-hand behind the desk as well as the mic.
As if a career in music wasn’t challenging enough, Quadri also has plans to conquer the the fashion world, creating an empire like Jay-Z. With the self-assured braggadocio he exercises in his music, we’re inclined to believe he’ll get there through sheer determination and resilience.
