spitting bars at Boiler Room, where, impressed by her magnetic ability to pull in a crowd,
the organisers invited her to perform at the Boiler Room Festival in October this year.
Scuti’s childhood reveals a musician in the making: the rapper grew up in a home where
Mum listened to gospel, Dad to reggae, all the while surrounded by family members who
have also dabbled in music.
It wasn’t long before she ended up writing her first song at just ten-years-old. Though Scuti
started off writing poetry, it was the local heavy influence of grime and trap that soon led
her to writing bars – and she’s never looked back.
Over the years, the rapper has forged a distinct sound of mellow, relaxing beats with heavy
baselines, which she developed with her cousin TN in a South London studio. Citing
influences such as the collective D-Block Europe, Scuti’s music explores universal themes
including freedom, friends and family.
In November, she will be releasing her first single ‘Skoowup.’
