On how he got into music:

I got into music when I was like 14, but I didn’t rap, I used to play instruments like piano and shit like that. I started rapping when I was like 16. I took it seriously at 18 and then it popped off at about 21.

On his name:

Octavian’s my real name too – my birth name.

How was Essie gang was formed:

Essie Gang basically used to be called SE, it stood for SE Gang – South East Gang. But because there were more and more people from North and West we just changed it into Essie Gang.
