In the words of Larousse-Mariano: 'I mix American hip-hop with atalaku, our kind of rap. That's my thing. My dad was always getting me to look up words in the dictionary - so that's where 'Larousse' came from. Rocky Marciano was the only heavy weight never to be knocked out. Me, I box with words, and I want the whole world to know me. Then I can go out drinking with friends, and all the ladies will come and make up to us. With my money I would also like to build schools and hospitals. When I'm ill I think about death: I don't like being sick. Actually I'm off to a funeral now - my friend's cousin. She was 25 years old and she died of, erm, cancer.'.
