Who are your all-time favorite artists?
Ice Cube, Denzel Curry, XXXTENTACION - for different reasons.
-Ice Cube is one of the most OG hip hop artists and rappers and I think he encompasses the best of old school rap and g-funk.
-Denzel Curry is a newer artist who uses his own unique style and is so talented at doing so; he brings energy and life to dark subjects in music and society.
-XXXTENTACION is one of my favorites because he made music and spread his beliefs only for the reason of expressing himself not to make money; everything he produced was his own and completely unique.
Name one of your favorite albums of all time -
One of my favorite albums is B4.Da.$$ by Joey Bada$$. This was one of his breakout albums that I believe encompasses the unique style and talent of Joey. There is a huge diversity of songs and I could listen to every one over again. I will never get tired of this album.
Name a song(s) you have listened to on repeat –
Wet Dreamz by J. Cole is one of my favorite songs of all time and will never get old. I think it perfectly encapsulates a scene that the listener [can] imagine and relate to every time.
An interesting artist(s) you recently started listening to -
Ski Mask the Slump God is a recent artist who I've learned to enjoy and who I believe has huge potential to become great. I have yet to hear him really produce something that is true to himself and unique, but I believe that when it comes it will be great.
