KIDGLISTEN - INTERVIEW


1. Tell us your rap name and where are you from? "Aight my name is KG and that stands for KIDGLI$TEN, I didn't even think to hard bout that shit for real, Ion know I been had the name since 2015. Where am I from? most people wouldn't know this about me but I'm from New Zealand, born and raised. I'm tryna branch out internationally though." 2. What made you start making music? "Shit some day at school back in 2015 I had been plotting on it for a min, I found out one of the homies had a mic so we clicked up and started to record. Growing up I always had a musical background, my dad and uncles were in a band called Motocade back in the day, so I was always around that environment." 3. Who are your influences in rap? "No one really because the industry now days for most rappers is so fake. But I fuck with some real ones like Slimesito, Goonew, Duwapkaine, they hard." 4.What is your take on the underground rap scene right now? "I mean its better then whats popping on the radio. This industry is pay to play now, which is toxic so that's why you see all these top artists on the billboards because the industry pushes them for money. That's why I fuck with the underground scene more because what they rap about is real, and is more relatable plus they wouldn't sign their soul away for a label." 5. What are your goals for the new year regarding music? "More music videos for sure, consistently dropping on soundcloud. I do want to travel in the future to work with some producers over seas and artists, but since this covid shits going on at the moment its pretty impossible." 6. You have 1 person to thank, who would it be? "My moms, she really helped to raise me and always was there to take care of me when I was growing up. Yeah she cool." 7. What is your process for recording music? "I really just be free styling now, I feel like it hit harder. Straight off the top I feel like you vibe with the beat more. I mean writings cool and all but that shit take to long. I use to write all the time when I first started." 8. Any upcoming projects or singles fans should be getting ready for this year? "Hell yeah I'm dropping singles for sure for now. I might drop a tape later on this year, but right now I'm just working on music videos and singles." 9. What have you been doing music wise while in COVID times? "To be honest I been locked in the studio during covid. It gives me time to grind on my shit. Just been recording and stacking. But I know its fucking up things for a lot of artists like shows and traveling etc." 10. What impact do you want to have on the world? "I guess just people rocking out with me and my music, I want to impact peoples lives to get money, to be successful, to be who you want to be, be a individual. That's the type of impact I want to have for the world" 11. What's your best collaboration experience with another artist or producer? "Ive worked with a bunch of artists and producers, but my best collaborations would have to be BeezyB, Slimesito, Dae Dot. They going crazy." 12. Who does all of your cover art or do you make your own? "I make pretty much most of it myself. I have worked with other designers to make cover arts for albums but I've been just teaching myself and learning in the past so now Its pretty natural." 13. Who makes most of your beats or production? "I work with a bunch of international producers to many to name, because there inst that many fire ones in New Zealand. I have been working with a producer recently in my city though called 'ekoms666banz' I fuck with his sound." 14. What can we expect next from you? "You'll just have to wait and see. I got heat on the way" 15. Link the fans your Twitter & Instagram @ Below so they can follow you Twitter: @kidglisten Instagram: @kidglisten Soundcloud: @kidglisten Youtube: @KIDGLI$TEN
