I saw violence all the time when I was growing up in South East London. I'd see fights on the way to school and people getting bottled in the street.
People can get drawn into a life of crime because of peer pressure, or because they're looking for a sense of belonging or think it's the best way to protect themselves.
I wrote a song with Fixers because I want to encourage young people not to feel like they need to be something they're not. I saw a lot of young people getting involved in gangs and crime because they wanted to be perceived as a certain type of person, but it's okay to just be yourself.
I also wanted the song to show you shouldn't look down on people who end up in that situation - we're all from the same area and it could have happened to any of us.
