Atlanta artist Fa$t Life is in the early stages of his career and has already collaborated with some industry heavyweights. This week, the rising star released a mega banger featuring international superstar Waka Flocka.
We figured we should grab an interview with him before he goes stratospheric and hard to reach. Check out our interview with Fa$t Life below.
As an artist born and bred in Atlanta, how does it feel to see the changes both in the city and in the music industry over the past few years?
Honestly, it’s a blessing to see the progression and growth of the music scene in Atlanta. The underground scene is massive, and some of those artists have a bigger fan base than artists with a record deal. I love my city for being so creative and innovative with sounds and constant growth.
Do you think Atlanta being somewhat of a hip-hop Mecca has added to or diluted the magic the city has/had?
I definitely think there’s still that Magic because at any given moment in Atlanta you will find an opportunity that’s perfect for you. Don’t get it twisted, it’s harder than ever for real shit to surface, but that drives the competition which drives growth and innovation.
You’ve worked with some major artists and producers, who’s been your favorite to work with?
You are about to release your track with Waka Flocka. How did you two connect and what can we expect?
You are also a producer. How do you decide which beats to keep for yourself and which to pass on to other artists?
It’s all about the sound. Certain sounds match certain people like clothes fit people so it’s all about what’s right for who and what sounds were designed for the track. Every beat is different, some get sent right away others are held for years.
Have you had a chance to check out the new FX series, Atlanta? If so, what are your thoughts on the show and they way the city is portrayed?
Which other artists do you hope to work with in the near future and why?
I would love to work with King Kruel his sound is trill wave, Phantogram has some of the best production of all time, Q-Tip, wiz and Lil Wayne. They’ve all influenced me, and I would love to just make something out of this world with any of them.
