London-raised, Belfast-based, Zimbabwean artist Leo Miyagee introduces himself on ‘IDGAF’ with a brief history of his career and motivations so far – “he’s a chav at heart,” he’s been living in Belfast for 7 maybe 8 years, he supported Chipmunk and has been looking beyond his own city lately.

‘IDGAF’ is from the Trust God, Love Yours, Do Bits In Life EP out out on Friday October 6th and is the first release on District Magazine’s new label (it’s a week of first labels).

The EP serves as a a spiritual diary.

“who I am, where I’m from, who I want to be, as well as embracing my own roots and heritage in addition to the cultures I was raised and now live in”.

“Ultimately it deals heavily with my belief in God which has always been there and how it helped me through this existential crisis. The purpose of this whole thing was to show people it’s okay to sometimes feel discomfort and negative emotions and that they need tackle these emotions in a positive and productive way.”

Here he is on Mo-K’s Cypher Series:
