ILG: Why the name Rude Kid, was you a rude kid?
RK: The name just stuck from school days!
ILG: Where did the “Are You Ready” come from?
RK: Erm.. when I started making beats I had a CD with bare songs on it.. and I just sampled “Are You Ready” and started putting it in a few tunes..and when I didn’t put it in tunes people would ask why I didn’t use it.. so it jus become a signature sound/trademark.

ILG: Who is more important the MC/DJ/Producer?
