“They think because I’m gay that I can’t bully tracks.”

That was how Mr Strange introduced himself to the UK rap scene in a YouTube freestyle secreted last week.

He says he’s the first frankly gay male rapper in the UK drill/ trap genre – and opening up about his sexuality in the track was important to him.

“I’ve had people message me saying they came out after watching my video, ” Mr Strange told BBC 1Xtra presenter Reece Parkinson.
