Fastlife is an upcoming rapper from Queens, NY. He has blessed up with projects such as “Traffic King” “Fastlife 2” & “Camorra” to name a few. His wordplay & delivery makes makes you really get a feel for his music. He is definitely one of my favorite artists out right now that I recommend checking out. Fresh off the release of the “Slumber” project. I present you with the Fastlife Interview.
(TM) When I first heard “Garlic Cookies” I had to buy “Traffic King” immediately I loved the beat & song. What was your thoughts when you first heard that beat?
( FastLife ) I was blown away, it was exactly the type of beat i was looking for at the time, wazab_waza did his thing on that.
( TM ) By your own standards What are the 3 most important things you focus on when making music?
( Fastlife ) I focus on making good references, Using vocab i haven’t previously used, And just having fun/going with the flow.
( TM ) What do you think draws people to your music?
( Fastlife ) Not to sure, i be thinking im trash… lol
( TM ) I know from following you on Twitter you been through some tough times this year. How are you managing to stay positive and keep your mind on the music grind?
( Fastlife ) Man just staying busy, staying focused on the bigger picture.
( TM ) What’s your favorite song you recorded to date & why?
( Fastlife ) I don’t really have one yet i think they all suck, but that’s just me being a harsh critic on my self.
( TM ) Us Vs Them you said “bet against the odds it’s them against us their shits second to ours my shit sent from the gods the profits wisdom fell from the stars they trying separate man from his cause” powerful stuff……When you first heard the completed song what was your initial thoughts?
( Fastlife ) I thought damn me and villain got one right here. I’m just tryna do what i do best and give the track a dope Message and sound, we fucked that whole tape up!! Shout out vinyl villain.
( TM ) From what I see you don’t do much of them so I have to ask what’s your thoughts on features?
( Fastlife ) I do a bunch of features all the time, If they got $400 for me lets get it!!
( TM ) You worked with El Camino a few times over the years seems y’all have good chemistry. Have you thought about putting a project out together?
( Fastlife ) Camino the bro, haven’t really thought or discussed that, could be dope though.
( TM ) How important would you say album cover art is to you as an artist these days ?
( Fastlife ) I see a lot of the same shit, same inspired art, My advice is put something classic out something That’s going to make people remember the album off rip.
( TM ) What was your thought process working on this new “Slumber” project you recently dropped?
( Fastlife ) My thought process was i wanna make an EP where you can just roll up smoke and by the time the blunts done your like wait the ep is over? Run it back that was a vibe… Make people get lost in the sound, and vibe of the EP. The features on it I wanted to shine light on people who I think are doing dope shit in the underground music community and people i fuck with personally wiardon and Jah Monte those dudes came through & I thank them immaculately.
