In FACT TV’s latest episode, we caught up with one of our favourite new hip-hop artists.
Originally from New York, but now living in Berlin, Thunderbird Gerard’s not released much, but what he has has been impressive: in the debt of golden era hip-hop but without being in thrall to it, he’s got the sort of skill and personality that could make his forthcoming debut album a real hit. Oh, and he’s a great dresser, which does help – whether you like it or not.
FACT TV caught up with Gerard in Soho to find out more about his story to date; you can also watch a Tom Waits-heavy outtake here.
