Breis is considered an OG of the UK rap game. With a career that kicked off in the 90s, the rapper, turned teacher, turned author has recently released a new book entitled ‘Diary of a Creative Mind’ which compliments his new EP Arise & Shine which touches on many of the issues that Black artists in the UK have to face including race & racism, finances and performing.
With this book, BREIS hopes to not only inspire and encourage creatives from all backgrounds but to offer them insights into the complex yet culturally rich experience of an independent artist in the UK.
We caught up with him to talk about his career journey, the legacy of British ‘OG’ rappers and of course we reminisced about the loss of the late great TY.
