Firstly, What is thraxx to you? (What does it mean for you to be a piece of the movement, what do you guys hope to accomplish, what brought you together)
KBK: First off as an OG and Founding Father in #BASED Culture, to me Thraxx is like one of the elements that makes up #Based It’s The Swag. It’s the feelin u get when u have reached a fine understanding of what it means to be #Based. U got to have studied Lil B “I’m Thraxx” to know. Very Pure.
Give us your brief commentary on the state of hip hop these days (drake – love him or hate him, kendrick lamar is he a douche, goth money records what’s up with them)
KBK:As far as rap these days, it’s cool… Thraxx and #Based the rawest doin it. The game mainstream tho, I feel like it need more Thraxx and Original #Based and less knock off of what us young niggas started #TYBG. As far as cats like Drake, he’s cool, he jus need to come get some of this real swag. I heard Keyboard elements in his intro to NWTS. Kendrick dope. I honestly keep to myself and stay in my lane.
What do you as an individual bring to thraxx house that no one else does?
KBK: I bring true #Based and #Thraxx (to the house). I been Thraxx and I fuck with my young homies doing it, they dope – and I just wanna see us win. They wanted me to be a part of it and I respect it. I’m just bringin that #BASEDINTHERAIN #BASEDWORLD Yung Namor.. Shit.. God Shit. I make classics.
What sources of inspiration do you draw from for your production work (be creative! tv shows, movies, visual art, music, articles, books it all affects us)
Man I draw inspiration from life on all levels.. I am the trees.. the water.. the wind.. the air. I am just trying to be at one with Earth – thas my inspiration. My family, anime, video games, women, books, everything. I just zone out when I make music. I just do me.
Damn, so based. Alright, lastly reccommend 3 Thraxx tracks you don’t think our blog readers can live without:
