As part of our ongoing “Rap’s New Generation” series, today we sat down with the upcoming underground artist MITUS from Newcastle, Australia 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, MITUS! Let’s go back to the beginning of your career. How did you decide to become an artist?
MITUS: I was originally writing as an outlet to deal with things that were happening in my life. I think I was only 13 or something? A few years ago I started taking it more seriously and the results have spike spoke door themself.
I Was told early on by an older artist to make the most of every opportunity and to not die wondering.
What about concerts? Do you play live?
I've played all over Australia for years now, hether it be my own shows or when I've opened up for artists like Xzibit or The Game. In 2013 I was meant to play a festival in the UK but my dog got sick and that was my priority.
Best punchline you ever wrote?
Pull your card, put on your ass for asking. Swear you got the brass but you aren't Nas or Rakim
