MC Vapour Interviews


So Mr. V if you don’t mind me calling you… First and foremost how did the name Vapour come about?
Verbally . Accurate . Purely . Original . Urban . Rap
(where mans get blown away) hehehe
Ummmm I used to go under a different name that I used as a DJ which obviously couldn’t be used once I started MC’ing….. so I had to change it…..
But while I have the chance there I would like to say…..
“A RUMOUR HAS TRAVELLED VIRTUALLY THE CIRCUMFRANCE OF THE WORLD AND BAK AS A CHINESE WHISPER….. THAT I WAS GUN THREATENED BY MC VIPER BECAUSE MY NAME WAS TOO MUCH LIKE HIS?? HEHEHEHEHE THAT IS THE BIGGEST LOAD OF SHIT IVE HEARD IN YEARS…. ME AND VIPER ARE SAFE…. SO BELIEVE WHAT YOU LIKE, BUT NOT EVERYTHING YOU HEAR!! LOL….

Who was your childhood inspiration to start spitting?

UMMMMMM….DAMN…..ummmmmm…lol…
Ok….i always say…I never REEEEALLY had any main inspirations…. Jus people who could make me move from my seat….
And I jus knew what I liked…… and there were different people to each different genre of music…. With Hip Hop I was kinda late so the main man for me really before hip hop was completely commercial like it is nowadays was Busta Rhymes….. I was buyin all those tape packs from One Nation etc from around age 11 too so I was all up on the latest dance scene…. Which changed al the time…. CAN YOU BELIEVE, ME OF ALL PEOPLE, USED TO DISLIKE MC’S!! well, I mean, I had all these tapes of MC GQ who was like a Host more than a lyricist….then suddenly I bought a desert storm pack wjich had like 7 mc’s with a mic each….????????
A whole new meaning of mc was brought to light…. And at first I was jus listenin to Navigator thinking….” Don’t he shut up”???….. then I started pickin up on the lyrics……then I was thinking “this is deep…… then I was dancing infront of mirrors…hahahaha…
I think that’s where Vapour was born….. so yeh I’d say it was the ’94 – ’96 jungle Mc’s that got me started…. And it’s the crap from today which makes me wanna carry on…hehehe…. And some will disagree here but I think it’s the people who came from drum n bass who are the best mc’s today with garage and hip hop…. Coz those who STARTED spittin to old skool garage started with a bumpy cheesy style and are still like it now….ummmm PSG, DT, SPARKS etc…..

When is the release date on your album and what artists will be appearing on it?
Damn!!….. ummmm…. im really not allowed to say too much here…. With release dates etc because Mark Ryder is ummm yeh im really not allowed to say to much here…… lol
Featuring artists are looking heavy right now…… hopefully ALL names you’ve not heard of unless they are meant to be famous because I wanna bring a whole new rosta to the scene….
Manz Like:
YungBlud… Riddles….. Verbal Kaos…. Public Offendaz….. Dub Trouble (production)….. Rhymestein (the worst of)…… Demolition Man….. MCD…….
Nocturnal and Intense (hip hop) Stashia and Nadia on Female Vocals….
Infact ive had a few girls approach me and ask me if they can sing for me…. I jus smile politely and say “go on then”….lol….. they dunno where to look!! There is too many names I have to bring in on this project so you can wait and see for the rest……

What stuff you got in line for the world this year?

Bookings as far as Dallas Texas, this November…..and im looking to go bak to Holland coz I had a bashment there last time…. Simply because I wasn’t arrested for blazin….ima reach there again…

You’re stranded on a desert island, if you could have 3 things with you…What would it be?
Women, Food and Sunshine!!
On a deserted island who needs money…. In fact, good point, you don’t need money so I’ll fit in better!! Send me there!!

We heard at 2sg that after the success of move your body, Mark Ryder raked in all the money from what we believe was your hard working writing skills that made that song what it was and still is. What is your opinion about that?My opinion would be….to spell the word “opinion” correctly nex time sparky hehehe

Um basically….. you say THE SUCCESS OF MOVE YOUR BODY.
This is my point exactly.
Move ur Body was successful in pushin my name out.
My decision was: Take it or leave it / all or nothing / lots or nots…..
So which one would you take….. that “SWAG” riddim did so much for me i suppose i should really feel some love for the lil peace of shit!!

What’s your main motivation for staying in the scene today?Lots really….. haters for one…. I think, if they gun me, and I leave the scene, they are only gonna gun me more, so id rather stay and say stuff I know will get up they nose .
Secondly….. my simple love for music.
Thirdly, if ive told my mum ive got no job coz I wanna be famous and been outta work this long then im not changing my mind now coz she will end me. Hahaha, safe mum…. Can we call it quits at £86,000?? Hehehe


As most people no your in a crew called UKT…Why? Why not just go solo, you were big enough to?
OK S DEE IM GONNA FOCUS MORE ON THE POINT OF YOU JUS SAYING I “WERE” BIG ENUFF TO…… LOL…..
UKT is my Underground peoples….. the peeps from the street who are in the same boat as me…… whereas I have strictly Underground to release the commercial crap worldwide, everyone who knows me knows that I will always stick to the street way….. whenever im on radio 1 I will still be doing pirates….. when im a millionaire I will still be bussin Burger king…. Simple.
And these are my boys who know where im comin from…. Where as I see Mark Ryder as an entire company. This is not struggling.

Apparently you said Eksman was One of your idols, if you mean Eksman the DNB MC...then does that mean you originally start MC'n Drum n bass and if so then why did you switch to garage?Firstly Yes, you have the right one, Eksman….. he was a BIG inspiration to me….. he jus carried the same style to drum and bass that I carry with my “urbanism” today….. bouncy, quick, different, cheeky, wise etc…..
When I said earlier about the learnin lyrics from tape packs…once the price of those things reached £20 then it was a turn to the free recordings of pirate radio
Hehehe….. I knew Every Eksman lyric…..bak in the day….. since then…..
I have been on at least 5 flyers I can think of right now where I was in the bigger arena to him!! That’s a good thing for me I guess….

Do you regard yourself as one of the greats?

Umm…. Honestly no, but I would like other people to…..
Its all a matter of opinion really.
I think what makes me say no…is the fact that my biggest followings are places like western America and Melbourne Australia etc….
So if im not that big in the UK working with UK music then things cant be looking toooooo good….the reason the other countries like it is only coz its different….maybe….. but I know they love me…hehehe

through the years you have been mc'ing what can you recall on as the hardest time to break through into the scene?

Ummmm….. right now.
Every next day is a next struggle.
Everyday someone else wants to “just be” an mc.
