Take a look at his interview to be introduced to the next wave of music produced by BDI Beatz.
BDI Beatz Interview
HCM. How did you come by your stage name?
BDI. A good friend once said to me “be the eye”! I thought it was cool and I just abbreviated it as “BDI”!
HCM. When did you discover your love for music and what made you realize you wanted to pursue a career in music?
BDI. My uncle Paul gave me a guitar back then. I was 5 and really wanted to play this thing and so the love for music began! Later when I turned 20 I got into rap. Before I did rap, I tried it with punk and metal! Unfortunately, it failed again and again. At some point, I met Godfather Part 3 of Infamous Mobb and I’m still friends with him today. He showed me the business and inspired me to become a rap producer.
HCM. To what or whom do you accredit your sense of style?
BDI. I’m trying to go my own way, but I’m extremely influenced by the 90’s boom-bap.
HCM. On your current/upcoming album… How did you come up with the concept for this project?
BDI. I wanted to be as gory as possible and definitely stay international. That’s why MC’s from different nations are on “Infamous Gory Bastardz”!
HCM. What are some of your greatest challenges as a music producer, and what is your greatest attribute when it comes to your work ethic?
BDI. I love my work and I think every song has a challenge. You just have to work on yourself every day. My sample selection is amazing because I get a lot of support from a good friend.
HCM. What impression would you like listeners to be left with after hearing your music?
BDI. I want the listener to nod his head and get the original 90’s feeling again.
HCM. What are your plans for the near future?
BDI. I am currently producing beats for 3 new albums. The first one will be Veteran Eye. Also with my Canadian Bros from Pengeah! We’ll see what the future holds.
HCM. Is there anyone you’d like to thank, any shout outs?
BDI. First of all, thank you to all the organizers who are currently having real problems and still hold on to us. And also my team who support me every day!
