Tuff Questions is our new series where we ask artists a series of incredibly difficult questions. Questions so hard
Cheat Codes are an American three-piece from LA and they've been steadily blowing up over the past few years. They cracked the UK Top 10 in 2016 with "Sex" and since then they've teamed up with Fetty Wap on "Feels Great", Nicky Romero on "Sober" and Demi Lovato on "No Promises".
They were in town the other week to perform along with Slushii and REZZ, so we caught up with them ahead of the gig and cracked open a jar of extra tuff questions.
