Describe your sound in 3 words
Tell us a few things about your new song PWR. What is the main idea behind it?
Most revolutionary rap song of the millennium, facts. 40M Tye, Hippie G and V of 40M, we got us a movie. Motion picture s***, heavy on the M. Arab Mxfia, whatup. Wanted an anthem for the movement and the Creator, the Universe and the Ancestors provided. We’re sowing the seeds of Black Power and Independence into one of, if not the, most influential components of our culture. If generations of our people can be pushed towards self genocide, etc through music and “entertainment” then we figure the same can work in reverse you feel me.
Which is your most personal and honest lyric?
Most personal on PWR, “If you ain’t speaking truth to power, then I don’t even wanna talk” and I mean that s***. Anything else is just small talk or time passers. lol As far as honesty, they’re all honest to keep it a k but the ending bridge on PWR is high key fire for real. “Ain’t no gun factories in the hood, ain’t no pill factories in the hood, ain’t no coke factories in the hood, ain’t no dope factories in the hood – so how does it get here yeah?” We’ll let the gov’t answer that jawn.
Who is your favourite beat maker and which rapper’s flow do you enjoy the most?
Don’t really have a favorite beatmaker but I’m heavy on Afrobeats and Drill so if you’re a producer with a unique sound who’s trying to build something timeless – tap in! Fave rap flow besides the M’s? Rock with quite a few musically, including but not limited to Dusty, Meek, Lanez, Joyner, Polo and Sheff G. Got a thing for Ice Spicee too and if she ever reads this – link up shorty lol.
What does hip hop symbolize in your opinion?
Our culture and our influence. They say we’re a or the “minority” but we know how bad them motherf***ers lie. With that being said and despite of it, the whole world follows our culture and is influenced by what we do – hiphop is an example you dig.
In which state of mind do you imagine people might listen to your music?
A revolutionary one. Motivated and inspired for real.
What is the most trouble you’ve ever gotten into?
We’re grown, ain’t no such thing as “in trouble” – especially in regards to the opps and their nut a** laws. I have been “kidnapped” aka locked up quite a few times though, mostly for selling poison to my own people as a young bull. That of course being before my inner M was fully awakened but now – that’s a whole dub.
