Slowthai on Nothing Great About Britain:

“It’s basically my experience of growing up [in the UK]; of having a family that were immigrants originally, of the stories they’ve told me, of my childhood and how I’ve lived my life. Through it, I’ve gone on a journey of explaining how everything I was chasing to make me feel good only clouded my judgement. And it took me going through a ton of shit to realize that none of these things – no money, no drugs, no fake relationships – is gonna make me happy, or make me a good person.”
