Black Atlass Interview

I did a photoshoot/interview with up and coming Canadian musician, Black Atlass. We discussed his DIY music style along with a range of other topics for a post on HYPETRAK. Check out an excerpt from the interview below:

When I first started getting into hip-hop and rap, artists from that genre were doing everything themselves and taking that DIY approach to music and that’s what I liked and what made it really accessible to someone like me. Once I started getting into hip-hop like Lil Wayne and Kanye, Kanye especially just seeing an artist like that… the way that he fully creates his vision and sound and everything was a big inspiration for me. The album that most attracted me to Kanye was MBDTF because it had that whole visual aspect to it. After that, it was just a matter of evolving everything that I was into before that and all the new stuff I’m finding now and shaping that into something that sounds like what I have in my head.”
