If you cast your minds back to May 2011, you will probably remember this dude’s name being shared around your school, college or wherever. After all, millions of us appreciated his sick bars. In what may be considered as a surprise move, MC Smally has decided to join the Grime scene.
Just looking at my Twitter feed, many of you seemed to think that he was dead for some reason. I’d like to be the person who puts these rumours to rest and announce that he is alive- cause I interviewed him earlier today.
since when was mc smally dead?????

Here’s the original video that made him a viral sensation:
Ever since he received millions of YouTube views on “that’s my name”, MC Smally has been wondering what to do next. Of course, he decided to do a short interview with The Wall Of Comedy (you can thank me later).

Earlier today, I caught up with “Smallz” to discuss his career. Here’s what happened:
Many people know you from the song “That’s My Name”. How did the idea for that track originally come about?
“We were at my grandma’s house. My bro was engineer for the track, if you get what I mean. Being kids at the time, we were simply throwing raps together, and Voilla. It started being shared from school to school, and things went from there.”
What’s been your most embarrassing moment in the past few years?
“It’s gotta be when I’ve been out with mates. They will sometimes approach random people in the street and ask if they know MC Smally. Of course they do- so it’s the most embarrassing thing in the world.”
Obviously you’ve now made a comeback with your new single. What was the inspiration to start this?
“To be honest with you, I’ve been on the Grime scene for a few months. Created a few tunes. But I gotta give a shoutout to YJ.”
Do you have any dreams for the future?
“I just wanna go with the flow. After all, what’s the worst that could happen?”
I’d like to thank Smallz for having a chat with me about his career. You can check out his new song here:
