5 answers for Gia's school paper  Reply with quote  

1) What do you want people to get from your music?

I want them to connect to it somehow. I want them to be entertained in the process. I want them to laugh out loud or say "mmm......mmhmm." Or I want them to say, "oh hell no...haha...helll NO"

2) How do you feel the mainstream hip hop fans view your genre and how do you define your genre exactly?

Mainstream hiphop fans view my "scene" as a lost battle. My genre is still being developed, but currently it has a lot to do with thoughtful and interesting people. Weirdos, geniuses and fools all lost in the mix of technology.

3) How do feel your music is different from mainstream?

It isn't available for mass consumption. I suppose It's a little more challenging to the average listener, but not enough to scare people away. For the most part, my career and/or music doesn't have the pretty packaging or the backing of major promotion monsters.


4) How do you think the country views hip hop? How would you want them to perceive it?

The country? Who is the country? As a whole, people see it as youth culture. Party music. Mainstream music. I want them to percieve it as an effective tool for the people. It's not just party music. Some of it is meant to be listened to on your headphones while no on is around. Its not always social.

5) Do you think that hip hop is dying? or dead?

I think that's a ridiculous notion.
