Lewis Lacey’s video will be broadcast internationally after it was chosen to appear in Skyline Inflight Entertainment.

The excited East Norfolk Sixth Form College student, aged 17, found out just last week that his video had been picked by the company that supplies entertainment packages to British Airways and 40 other airline companies around the world.

“I was happy that after all the effort I’ve put in it’s started to get picked up,” said the rap artist.

“It would be weird to get on a plane and hear it played.”

The rapper and music producer from Winterton-on-Sea writes all his own lyrics and described his music as positive, conscious hiphop.

“I try to give a positive message to young people, who tend to be influenced by more negative music,” said the A-level student.

And with more than 2,700 followers on Twitter, Lewis has gradually built up a loyal group of supporters.

“Up to the last year it was just the UK, but now I’ve got supporters in the US, Canada and New Zealand,” he said.



Throughout the last year he has been working closely with Dean Street studios in London, who have worked with well-known artists such as Drake.

Parents Samantha and Terry are supportive of his music. Mrs Lacey, 44, said: “I’m so proud of him, we’re really excited and he’s worked really hard for it. It’s nice to see it’s finally coming together.”

The keen rapper hasn’t told his friends about his recent success yet, adding: “I tend to keep things to myself but everyone is very supportive.

“There was one point last year when it seemed things were taking off, but then things seemed to stop,” he added.

“It’s nice for people to see I’m back and bringing out a single.”

The young rapper is planning concerts and radio interviews in the coming months and hopes to release more singles and an album in the near future.

Mr Lacey’s single “Take me down” is available for pre order on iTunes and will be released on June 2.

Bio

 

Influenced by US hip-hop and the UKs burgeoning urban scene, Lacey started recording music at the age of 14. His first demo was sent to Kiss FM on spec, and as proof that they do actually listen to the hundreds of tracks sent to them each week, was deemed worthy of positive feedback. Encouraged by this early success, Lacey continued to record and has since been featured on Future Radio Norwich, BBC Radio Norfolk and many other independent radio stations. Lacey has toured extensively, performing at clubs, festivals and stadiums around the UK including Oxford's Kassam Stadium and Peterborough's Willow Fest. In addition to his growing popular following, Lacey is gaining increasing industry recognition having been signed for major distribution by Believe Digital, and working with producers Alex Beitzke and Austen Jux Chandler, who produce at the world famous Dean Street Studios.
