a Selfie with NEDARB NAGROM
1. Who are you and what do you do?
I’m NEDARB NAGROM (all caps when you spell the man’s name) and I rap, make terrible unoriginal beats, mix, master & listen to hella Lil B. I also eat way too fucking much pizza and feel sad a lot.
2. How has the internet helped you with the creation and distribution of your art?
The Internet has helped me with everything that has to do with whatever success I’ve had and will have in music. It’s the easiest way to show people music. I’m really grateful I grew up in this Internet era. Plus, everybody I work with and meet nowadays is usually online first.
3. What artists are you a fan of that also have a strong internet presence?
I think the obvious answer, for most people, is Lil B. I also listen to a lot of milo (one of my super tight homies) who has been popping heavily on the internet for a few years now. I also have to thank milo for any success I have, he brought me into this shit, really. I also listen to a lot of Goth Money Records, shout out to Black Kray & MFK especially.
4. What’s your favorite video game of all time and why?
I was never a huge gamer but I always have fucked with all the GTA games. I’ve been fucking with Skyrim a lot lately, though. But yeah, all time favorite game is probably Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.
5. Who’s your favorite hip-hop artist of all time and why?
Honestly, probably A Tribe Called Quest for like, older shit. Phife Dawg is one of my favorite MCs ever. He’s so witty and cocky, I love it. For newer cats, probably Drake. He is simply that dude. One of the best song-writers of our general.
6. Anything else you’d like to say?
Shout out to my team, The Penobscot Expedition. That’s milo, WC Tank, Safari Al & Nicholas J. Also shout out to my dude Cold Hart, that’s the homie. Also shout out to my boo ZEDD THE INCREDIBLE. She’s about to drop her debut project VIOLENTLY ILL.
