The young rapper / actor has become one of the few young creatives to successfully combine music and acting in the UK, having been nominated for the 'Rising Star' accolade at the Screen Nation Awards in 2011 and starring in the critically-acclaimed recent Channel 4 drama Top Boy.
In 2012 Snakeyman is planned to drop a new EP and also stars in the highly anticipated films 'My Brother the Devil' and 'The Knot'.
Snakeyman was inspired by the influx of Garage music and artists such as So Solid Crew and Wiley when he was growing up in Brixton, South London. The young rapper began to build a name for himself on the underground grime scene, and has since worked and collaborated with Bashy, Skepta, Ghetts, and Tinie Tempah to mention a few. He found time to clash Tinchy Stryder and appear on legendary DVD series 'Lord of the Mics' in 2006. He soon found himself on the pages of RWD magazine and at the age of 21, picked up the award for 'Best Newcomer' at the Urban Music Awards.
His 2008 debut single 'New Kid' received heavy support from Choice FM, Kiss FM, BBC 1Xtra, MTVBase, and T4 Music. He also recently contributed to the film soundtrack for gangster film Terry with his single 'Making Moves'. Snakeyman's newest offering 'Never Fail', produced by SF1, has already received significant support from BBC Radio 1Xtra (DJs Semtex, Charlie Sloth, Ace n Vis) and is released on 21st November, available from all good digital music outlets.
A serious campaigner for causes close to his heart, Arnold lends his time to charity Love Music Hate Racism, and has recently been announced as an ambassador for Africa's largest charity, Aiducation http://www.aiducation.org.
