Not3s lives so close to North London’s Finsbury Park that growing up, during Wireless Festival, he’d be able to feel the bass thudding through his floor. “The year that Drake came [2015], I could hear his soundcheck in full from my house,” recalls the 20-year-old. “But all I’d do was sit [and listen], because I never had enough money to buy a ticket, so I didn’t want to go until I was actually performing.” Well, not only is Not3s performing this year, but after a frankly astonishing ascent to the forefront of the British music scene, he’ll be playing the main stage alongside homegrown grandmaster MC Giggs and American heavyweights such as DJ Khaled and Rick Ross.

Rapper and Grime artist Not3s has delivered some absolute bangers and shot to fame with such hits as ‘Fine Line’ and ‘My Lover’ with Mabel and his viral sensation ‘Addison Lee’, so, as he’s set to play Wireless festival this weekend, just exactly who is Not3s, how old is he and what is his real name?!….

The British-Nigerian shows off his musical range over the EP’s 10 songs, which shift from dancehall to grime to pop. Given that this is Not3s’ first project since gaining mainstream success, the project finds him reflecting on the good and the bad of his newfound fame.

[Intro]
[?]
I think you should trust in me
[?]
I think you should trust in me

[Verse 1]
Yeah when I know I’m the cold one, was sleeping then
But now I have awoken, kiss chase in school
I was never chosen
Now I get girls that are better than my old ones
And better than your new ones

[Pre-Chorus]
Tell a hater “do one”
I am such a nuisance
MOBOS with a swanky suit and some sparkly Louboutin
Wardrobe full of different fabrics, I don’t know what to choose from
My mind’s all over the place, I cannot choose one

[Chorus]
Kids doin’ just great
I’m doin’ just great now
Things ain’t ever what they make out
That’s why I gotta stay out
Man ah grind ’til I gotta skate out
All the games that they play I play
We don’t share the same traits
So I’m doin’ just fine

 

 

[Post-Chorus]
I’m doin’ just fine
Doin’ just great
I’m doin’ just fine
(I think you should trust in me)
We don’t share the same traits
So I’m doin’ just fine

[Verse 2]
Hate on me on a sly that’s fine ’cause I don’t care
Chattin’ off behind my back that’s facts ’cause I’ve got burnin’ ears
My glow up is a haters hell on Earth I hope they burnin’ well
They stay on watch me shine
Doin’ that Big Ben ’cause it’s my time

[Pre-Chorus]
Tell a hater “do one”
I am such a nuisance
MOBOS with a swanky suit and some sparkly new Louboutin
Wardrobe full of different fabrics, I don’t know what to choose from
My mind’s all over the place, I cannot choose one

[Chorus]
Kids doin’ just great
I’m doin’ just great now
Things ain’t ever what they make out
That’s why I gotta stay out
Man ah grind ’til I gotta skate out
All the games that they play I play
We don’t share the same traits
So I’m doin’ just fine

Kid’s doin’ just great
I’m doin’ just great now
Things ain’t ever what they make out
That’s why I gotta stay out
Man ah grind ’til I gotta skate out
All the games that they play I play
We don’t share the same traits
So I’m doin’ just fine

[Post-Chorus]
I’m doin’ just fine
Doin’ just great
I’m doin’ just fine
(I think you should trust in me)
We don’t share the same traits
So I’m doin’ just fine

[Outro]
Doin’ just fine
Doin’ just fine
So I’m doin’ just fine
(I think you should trust in me)
[?]
Remedy on this beat [?]
Doin’ just fine
(I think you should trust in me)
