HipHopLEAD: When did you decide to make the transition from breakdancing to the hiphop scene?

HipHopLEAD: What is the hiphop scene like over there compared to on US soil?

Tyjei Diezle: It’s very different. The industry is not as big and it’s developing slowly.

HipHopLEAD: Who were your influences to get into music?

Tyjei Diezle: First and for most 2pac and The Outlawz, you have Treach ( Naughty By Nature) , Boot Camp Clik and Wu-Tang Clan. They all have something to do with the artist I am today.
