As i-D’s Music Editor, Hattie Collins has interrogated icons such as Lady Gaga, Rihanna and Kanye West and has travelled the world documenting cultural movements for i-D, including Grime, Dancehall and Crunk. She first found love for music during university as a radio and club DJ – “despite not being able to mix”, she says. Beginning her career scribbling for Hip Hop Connection eleven years ago, she’s one of the UK’s most knowledgeable commentators on rap, R&B, grime, dancehall, pop and all that’s in between, and has contributed to The GuardianQ, NME, Vibe, XXL, The Sunday Times Culture, and RWD magazine. Hattie has also ghostwritten a number of books, including Tinie Tempah's 'My Story So Far' and Jessie J's 'Nice To Meet You', and is currently writing her first novel.
