He dares to be different!

Featured artist: Basta Hitz – He dares to be different!

As part of our ongoing “Raps New Generation” series, today we sat down with the upcoming underground artist Basta Hitz from Amsterdam to talk about his recent music, his upcoming projects, his career advice and his overall experiences being in the music industry and he did not disappoint…

Thanks for taking the time to talk with us, Basta Hitz! Let’s go back to the beginning of your career. How did you decide to become an artist?

Basta Hitz: I always loved music from an early age.
I always knew music was what i wanted to make.
Music is a language that speaks for itself, even though sometimes music is made in a language you don't speak you can still hear the emotion of the song and can touch your heart. I wanted to become an artist that could speak to someone's heart even when I make music in a other language.

What doesn't challenge you, isn't worth working on.

What about concerts? Do you play live?

Yes, i do it has been a while but i have some things planned for February 2019. I currently aren't doing any shows because i'm working on new material.

Best punchline you ever wrote?

These ain't bars, these are memory lines.

What are you currently working on? Did you release something in the past?

I'm currently working on a new EP which i want to release in December 2018. This year i have released 2 albums and several singles. My album ''The Amsterdam King'' has been streamed a lot on Spotify and Itunes.

Last but not least: Would you sign a record contract with a major label?

Yes but only under the right circumstances. I think every artist would like to sign a contract and make a lot of money with a big label. Key to the game for me is that I maintain to have my own identity, I want to make what I want to make and don't want to be forced in making the type of music the label wants me to make. I think a lot of labels tell artists whatever they need to make because it sells a lot but I want to be different from others and not be just another rapper.

Any last words?

Shout out to my team, my engineer Spata Envy, Envy Music Group, and Royal Muzik Group. One love.
