We caught up with Koffi Machete who, we should mention, emerged victorious after battling Khaligraph Jones in a rap battle. He also had no problem keeping it 100% (his word not mine) for our quickfire interview.

What keeps you up at night?

Music. I’m always thinking about music.

If you could travel back in time what era would you want to be in and who would you hang out with?

  1. Tupac. He was, still is the illest.

What’s the most precious thing in your wardrobe?

Actually, it was stolen at a show. It was a chain that Khaligraph Jones gave me after we battled and I won.

What made you laugh this week?

Instagram memes.

Which one in particular? They’re so many?

Let’s just say the ones I saw.

Who/what is your biggest inspiration?

I can’t be specific, however, I will say that what inspires me is everything in my life, the people I meet and the people who surround me every day.
