PaPa Shiraz Interview

HCM. When did you discover your love for music and what made you realize you wanted to pursuit a career in music?
PaPa Shiraz. I’ve been making beats since I was 14, PaPa Shiraz was born around 5-6 years ago to tell stories in a catchy and vibrant way.

HCM. To what or whom do you accredit your sense of style?
PaPa Shiraz. A Child of Daft Punk, Kendrick Lamar, Andre 3000, Mehrad Hidden, Mohsen Chavoshi and of course Drake and The Weeknd.

HCM. On your current/upcoming album… How did you come up with the concept for this project?
PaPa Shiraz. ROBOTBOY really is a human song about bad habits and how to make the best of them.

Autotuned and vocoded vocals, firey punch-lines, mellow melodies, and banging drums, ROBOTBOY brings together trap and emotion and takes the listener on a journey across a messy night out all the way to the sofa with the dream-girl.

HCM. What are some of your greatest challenges as an artist, and what is your greatest attribute when it comes to your work ethic?
PaPa Shiraz. The promotional costs are probably the biggest challenge for any artist
my best attribute is respecting a timeline on my milestones.

HCM. Is there anyone you’d like to thank, any shout outs?
Papa Shiraz. God, Thank God!
