It’s a new genre.
And what made you decide to call it?
As I said, I made a name for myself as a producer in this way.
You want people to listen to this?
I want people to hear it. And so, “I’m RAPPOON! RAPPOON! RAPPOON! RAPPOON!”
Are you a member of a group like Young Jeezy? Or are you just a solo rapper?
I’m not a member of a group. I am an artist. And it wasn’t until I went to L.A., that the people recognized me. It’s like, “Man. You got to do this. It’s good.” But I was a member of a group and then I went to L.A., so I don’t know. I have a lot of respect for that group, as well. The thing I like about them is that they’re from California and they speak very rich. So, they’re very creative.
Are you a fan of Nicki Minaj?
Yeah, of course. But then again, I listen to a lot. I think the last album she put out, it’s so good. I really liked the whole album, man. Yeah, I really like Nicki Minaj. She does a lot of good stuff.
Are you really into the album of Sia?
I have a friend of a friend that says, “I have to go see this Sia album.” I would go see that one, in the States.
You’ve put out about 13 albums and a split EP right?
Yeah, it’s pretty impressive. I’m a fan of all of those songs too. That’s why I think I keep going.
You mentioned you like Nicki Minaj but were surprised that one of your most popular songs was a dance remix. How did that come about?
I didn’t make that song. It was someone else’s idea of what I should do. That song was just for fun.
I’m sorry to get all of that out of the way. I know you are a lot of different things but one of the things I like about you is you really just do all of it well.
No, I am. I do it all.
Is that because you keep evolving and you are always getting better?
