Aztec Flow Interview
HCM. Where are you from and how did you get to this point in your career as an artist?
Aztec Flow. I’m an Australian Rapper, Producer & Filmmaker, I’ve been doing music for a lil minute now but how I got to this moment in time has been through hard work. Straight up nobody can take anything away from me cause I got here because of me. I’ve had a lot of great people help me on this journey as well but I put myself here nobody else.
HCM. When did you know that you were going to make music a career?
Aztec Flow. From a young age, I was just listening to Naughty by Nature a lot and I just really loved the idea of being able to live by making music which was something I loved deeply.
HCM. What musical influences did you listen to growing up helped to mold you into the artist you are today?
Aztec Flow. I’d say it would probably be Naughty by Nature, Kanye, a little bit of Pac you know since he’s one of the greatest, and those were when I was growing up. Even now I’ve been influenced by dudes like Schoolboy Q, Zillakami, $not & Lil Skies who is my all-time favorite artist.
HCM. On your current/upcoming album… How did you come up with the concept for this project?
Aztec Flow. It started from just frustration from getting screwed around by some people in the past and I thought that the betrayal and backstabbing that came from those former friendships made a great song and theme. I was able to tie in the gritty theme around the Oj Simpson killings and make it work with the topic of the song.
HCM. What are some of your greatest challenges as an artist, and what is your greatest attribute when it comes to your work ethic?
Aztec Flow. Probably life itself, a lot of people won’t believe in you until they do something they determine as successful and that’s fair but what’s difficult about that is because you’re meant to be an entertainer people don’t really think you have ordinary lives and feel the same things they do so a lot of people can be pretty ruthless when it comes to you having problems since they think you have it all figured out.
HCM. What do you think your “biggest break” or “greatest opportunity” has been so far in your musical career?
Aztec Flow. I have a few great moments already, some I can’t speak on till the songs are ready but I have a few bigger features on some of my songs that I’m proud about. Some that I can speak about would probably be completing some of my larger music videos where a lot of people thought I couldn’t do it, which felt great. Almost like I defied odds or something.
HCM. What impression would you like listeners to be left with after hearing your music?
Aztec Flow. Honestly just that face like “yo cuz, that sh*t is hard as f**k”. hahaha
