Nas EBK Interview

This interview wasn’t supposed to happen.

Here’s a quick story.

With the help of my little brother, I got in contact with rising Bronx artist Nas EBK, in an attempt to set up an interview in June.

We settled on a date during the following week. However, when Nas had to reschedule, I was really disappointed.

The same scene unfolded with other drill artists I reached out to. If you wanted to work, they’d either lead you on or won’t respond.

And because of that, I didn’t think the interview would happen.

The next Saturday, the day the interview was originally scheduled for, I was boarding the train, en route to Brooklyn for two other interviews I had planned.

As I boarded the train, I get a text from Nas that read, “what time do you want me to pull up today?” 

Despite already having two meetings lined up, without hesitation, I told him to meet up with me later that evening.

I just couldn’t pass this opportunity up.  When he dropped his single “Bunny In The Box“, his name started buzzing across the city.

I already knew what a conversation with him could do for my platform.

Fast-forwarding to the interview itself, it went great. Once you take time to get to know Nas, you learn that he’s down-to-earth person.

There’s more to his personality than what he portrays in music videos & his tattoos.

Also shoutout to his close friends, Chevy & Zo, who accompanied him during our conversation.

Just as he wants to see them, Chevy & Zo want to see their brother succeed.

With that being said, this interview introduced my platform to a new audience & helped get my work the exposure it needed.

That wouldn’t have been the case without Nas. 

A lot of drill rappers never gave me the time of day when I reach out to them.

Nas did

That’s why I’m so appreciative of him because he believed in me enough to make this sit-down happen.

Therefore, a special shoutout goes to Nas, Chevy, and Zo. Wishing nothing but success for these guys, I’m forever rooting for them.
