A-Mac Embraces the Challenges of Being an Independent Hip Hop Artist. ( @thisisamac )

February 8, 2018

By FuNkwoRm

A-Mac is an independent artist who has called a number of different regions, home. He’s no stranger to this blog so we caught up with him to talk about his new EP, Come & See .

What brought you to hip hop and who were you listening to?

Well it’s the culture, you know? It’s literally the embodiment of expression. Early on I used to drum, and we know how well connected drums and rhythm are to hip-hop so I suppose it was only a matter of time. As far as who I listened to, there were a few. Growing up I listened to a lot of Pac, DMX, Nas, Cube, Outkast, Ye, Wayne, Drake, 50; I could go on so I’ll stop with etc. Ye inspired me with his creativity and drive to do things his way. Nas’ ability to flow caught my attention. As far as now, my range of what I listen to is still broad. Nipsey Hussle’s business mind of the industry is hard not to be drawn to. Travis Scott reminds me a lot of Ye in terms of creativity and own lane. Drake. People kind of confuse me when they don’t mention him in anything. But I can go from Chief Keef, to Kendrick, to Childish, to 2Chainz; just depends on my mood lol.

You’ve lived in a few different places. Which region influenced your hip hop style the most?

Yeah, I’ve lived basically everywhere except the West. Plan on taking a trip out there this year. Honestly though, being in a specific place hasn’t influenced my style; at least not in a majority type of way. What I can say though is that all the area I’ve been have allowed me to incorporate specific elements of each area’s style; that allows me to appeal to every region …read more

Illtalian: Faith, Determination, and Hawaiian Hip Hop ( @theilltalian )

January 15, 2018

By FuNkwoRm

Illtalian is an award-winning rapper from Hawaii of Italian and Filipino descent. His music has been featured on some of the biggest music sites in the world, including Rapzilla, z180 Radio, and New H20, and has been played on radio stations ranging from Hawaii to the United Kingdom. IHH got with him to talk about his recent album release, Makana, dedicated to his friend who was killed in a car crash in 2016.

IHH: So how did you get started as a rapper and what artists inspired you?

Illtalian: Well, I was a relatively late comer into the world of Hip Hop, believe it or not. It wasn’t until middle school that I even began to listen semi-regularly to rap. My dad bought me a compilation CD of all sorts of different Christian rappers one day, and I discovered KJ52, who was the first rapper I ever connected to. He was young and Italian (like me) and a Christian and funny and I actually felt like he and I might have something in common, and that made his music more appealing to me. From there it was Eminem and Tupac and Black Star and Lecrae and by 15, I was already rapping along to most of their songs. So when my friend, another rapper, asked me to enter the school talent show and rap with him, there was no hesitation. And even though we lost (we came in dead last, ha!) the adrenaline was addicting. I couldn’t go back, and I didn’t want to, so I became a rapper. The rest, as they say, is history.

IHH: What’s the hip hop scene like in Hawaii and is there strong support for the culture there?

Illtalian: Well, yes and no. There is a small but vibrant Hip Hop community in Hawaii, and that subculture is …read more
