From the belly of the beast , rose an artist by the name of Euro League who has been pushing the envelope of contemporary hip hop to the world. It was only right that I caught up with him to speak on what is happening and what we will expect in the near future.
Hello Euro League, how are you doing?
Wassup everybody. I am doing excellent. I’m in a very good space at this moment in time.
Good to hear that man. How did you get your name?
That makes sense now, I like it. Think back to when you were growing up, tell us your first experience with music.
Sure. What made you realise that you wanted to pursue a career as a rapper?
I hear you loud and clear. Well, we often get different rappers who bring something different to the table, what makes you standout from other rappers?
I standout from the rest because I am truly one of the best lyricists of the genre and I am also a great business man. I built my own production company with my partner MP Williams in NYC. NYC is the hardest place to do anything, especially coming out of the Bronx which I feel gets a lot of shade put on it considering it created hip hop and is the reason we are here today doing this interview.
Your music sounds very conscious, and that’s unfortunately overlooked and often ignored by most hip-hop fans in this modern era. Do you consider that as a problem for your career?
I hear what you’re saying, I just feel like we’re bombarded with a lot of nonsensical rap songs at the moment so hearing someone spitting some realness like yourself automatically puts you in the “conscious” category unfortunately. But would you ever surprise those fans with something totally opposite of what you do?
Why those artists?
The visual for the track is outstanding, did you have a hand in directing it?
Yes, I co-directed the video with Matt Schaff and I also did the full edit of the video. I am also responsible for Premiering it on Revolt TV and MTV Jams on Mother day this year.
Congrats on that man. Are you currently working on any new projects?
What can we expect from your upcoming project?
You can expect for me to keep innovating hip hop music and bringing new sounds and structure to the way independent artists release their music to the world.
