Meet Aidan, 21 years old from Fredericksburg, Virginia.
“I honestly never planned on making a public playlist, but I’ve had soooo many people ask me “hey what song is this?” when watching my Instagram stories. So I figured I’d finally just make a quick little playlist of some of my favorite old school hip-hop tracks for anyone to enjoy!”
What is the soundtrack to your life?
“Watching movies with the sound off” by Mac Miller
What’s more important to you? Music; or Lyrics? Why?
Both. I like to be able to listen to lyrics that have very good rhymes, the “elementary” rhymes that you don’t really hear anymore, but in order to have a truly good track, you need a beat that matches vibes of the lyrics. Then you gotta combine the two, come up with some good rhythms and flows, and then you’ve got a perfect balance between beat and lyrics!
Favorite artist? Top 5?
Mac miller, Big L, Joey Bada$$, Jay-Z, and Biggie Smalls. For the hip-hop genre at least!
If you had the chance to interview an artist, who would it be? (Dead or alive) and why?
Mac Miller because I think he was such an amazing, knowledgeable, and talented musician/rapper. He had the ability to touch base to almost every genre and implement it into his songs. He had an immense knowledge and respect for the old heads back in the day who really paved the way for this hip-hop shit!! A lot of people these days don’t understand the true meaning of 90’s hip -hop and it’s honestly sad, but thankfully Mac Miller knew what was good with the old school and a lot of his early work was inspired by some of the most legendary OG’s such as Big L and Mos Def.
