Split Personality is a UK based hip-hop crew influenced by all sorts of other artists. Not just commerical rappers but alot of unsigned ones too. We are from Camborne Cornwall and can do all sorts of different styles from American sounding rap to uk hip-hop. Grime is not our style but we could always flip the script! The crew started off with only two members between 1999-2001. The oringinal members are Ripping Rhymes & Tha Dangerous One. Then they met Clappy and Sick Spitta joined shortly after :) all in all we have been making music for 11 years.
The influences back then for RnD (Ripping & Dangerous) were only Eminem & Dr Dre but now over the years the music they listen to and get inspired by has changed alot. Now they listen to everything from Jurassic 5 to Juelz Santana. Mobb Deep are the favourites and that will be evident in most of their songs. For a UK rap ground we are not really influenced by UK hip-hop at all.
At the age of 17 we met up with a guy that also wrote lyrics but never had recorded anything.
I'll never ever froget the day we met Clappy. Ripping & Dangerous were up town getting blazed on green as usual when some girl came over and said that some dude raps aswell and we should check it out. So he came over and spat some sh*** to us and it was dope. We brought him back to D's house for a smoke and to do some freestyling. And he hasn't left the crew yet! Thats how the third member joined. The fourth member is called Ryan and he is Clappys brother. Thats the crew.
Yes, we have played live on many occassion's. We have done gigs in Truro (Live Bar) Redruth (Gaslights) and Camborne (Clipper Bar) and are looking for me gigs :)
