Priddy Uglyrevealed in an interview with Tshisalive that he felt that his artistic genius is undervalued for the amount of work he puts in.
"I conceptualise and design all of my artworks and imagery. We are producing and conceptualising all of our own videos. We shooting, editing and curating most of our social media content. We styling ourselves. I wrote all my own music and write for others too, so I’m more than just a rapper which people will catch on to eventually, so I’m not worried about that. Everything Godly Yearns Patience and Time."
However, the “Sumting New” rapper did acknowledge that he does receive praise from people, and that its sporadic nature will not hold him back. He went onto to mention how he has a growing international fan base of which he can hopefully tap into through a world tour.
