ExP - Fully Fledged Fraud (
I was trying to think of a way to describe myself, especially in terms of hip-hop, and the concept of being a "Fully Fledged Fraud" popped into my head. This is exactly what I am. In music, or otherwise, everything I attempt to do is done as a complete amateur, a fraud, but one who's been "having a go at it" for so long that maybe it isn't completely obvious to the onlooker. Maybe. I think we are all like this in one way or another, every specialist is just a beginner who put a lot of time in, every beginner is a specialist in the making, but every one of us is making it up as we go along. This album brings together my thoughts on existence, my every day struggles with being a white, privileged, fortunate and happy individual who still finds time to moan about absolutely nothing at all really. A fraud in my work life, a fraud in my married life, a fraud in my social life, a fraud in my music life. But I've got wings now...
