I’d constantly be getting emails from producers and stuff being like, “I’d love to work on some tracks on your album.” It’s infuriating, even just to get to the point where I could produce my own record, and have everyone fuck off and not give me shit for it. Just let me do my fucking job, why else am I here? I don’t want to be just like the face of this thing that I built, I want to be the person who built it.
I went through my
adolescence having this revelatory experience - I can have any music I
want, and I can get it immediately. For me and for a lot of people I
know, there’s this musical eclecticism that happened.
