Check out our exclusive interview with Atson.
I2G is here with Atson, how’s it going?
Great, thanks for having me!
Tell me a little bit about how you got your start in music and who are some of your musical influences.
Being a 16 year white boy from Brooklyn I guess I chose to stand out the most by jumping into the rap game. The bus ride to Middle School use to take my mind on journeys so deep through the albums of Big L , Wu Tang, Biggie, 50 Cent Eminem and Jay-Z that I didnt mind the travel to and from school.
Tell me a little bit about your new single, Before The Fame.
I was always interested in different types of music and the way people have reactions to one type but not another so i decided to fuse two together. A little trap techno, mixed with some Hip-Hop Rap , gives me a playing field of more then one genre.
Do you have any more upcoming videos?
I am currently working on an Ep releasing November 3rd. The team and I are focused having 4 videos for the 7 track Ep done by the release date.
What are your current thoughts on the music industry?
With social media taking over everyones life whether they admit it or not, I feel like even though Hip-Hop isnt at its traditional and original form, its evolved to something that has a fan base bigger then ever. Being an artist in 2017 I feel theirs a few choices of what to do. Join the wave, create a wave, or stick to origins. Im on the side of creating something I like, and sticking to it!
What is currently playing on your playlist musically?
It all goes by the mood of the day, I can go from Frank Sinatra, to Dave East, and Jay-Z to Linkin Park.
Do you have any shows or tour dates?
September 22nd the entire CANTSTOP team is putting together a Pop Up Shop with some dope performers including myself being a part of it! After that sometime in November Signature Series Arts is throwing an event I will be headling and then I feel its time to take an East Coast Tour into play.
What is your website information?
CantStopAtson.com has all of my information anybody from an A&R to a fan would need!
Appreciate the interview, any last words or shout outs?
I would just like to say Thank You for taking the time out for the interview, and would like to give a huge shoutout and appreciate to the entire CANTSTOP family. Each and every person on the team has an important role which contributes to all my success. Last but not least, thank you to every single person that supports me, comes out to shows, purchases merchandise, and shares my music! You guys are he reason I keep going! CANTSTOP!!
