Featured artist: Z∆rg of XI – We’re all the same
Below is a short interview with the upcoming underground artist Z∆rg of XI.
How did you decide to become an artist?
Z∆rg of XI: Both of my parents were musicians and artists that didn’t pursue their dreams and settled with a job that they are just ’okay’ with. I have always had an overactive imagination, and I have had music in my blood since the zygote stages of my existence. Therefor I felt it was necessary to keep track of my life through making music, it has always been leaking around my subconscious somewhere anyways. Aside from the inspiration I had from my parents, I developed with all sorts of music and became very attuned to it. With that being said, I never think of music as something I create, but something I connect to… something that was already me before I was placed in this crazy atmosphere. I believe that I was meant to make music/art and without it, I might just be another meat-slab on pavement.
If you give 5 different artists the same apple to draw, you are going to receive 5 different apples.
What about concerts? Do you play live?
I’ve been playing live for about 5-6 years, but have never played a hip hop show.
Best punchline you ever wrote?
I’m more of a philosopher than a pun-artist. but here’s one off the top of my head ”Keller gotta’ killer mute-the-mic mocking”
