As far as the history of UK Rap goes, Joe Black is a pivotal figure. Till this day few rappers can paint a picture with words like the Islington figure head.

And recently he sat down with long-form interview platform Straight No Chaser to talk through his life, touching on growing up in Highbury, his stints behind bars and his passion for football coaching.

For those not too familiar, ‘Straight No Chaser’ is an interview platform dedicated to supporting UK talent, with the three hosts bringing in a whole host of guests for lengthy chats.

So far they’ve welcomed the likes of TerminatorPoet and Scorcher into the studio for interviews. Find their back collection in full here.
