Interview By: Carrick Wenke
If you scower Soundcloud like I do, you should have realized by now that Anime, and Manga have played as one of the biggest influences in Underground music for the past few years. While the Anime influence hasn’t fully brushed over to the mainstream yet, there are plenty of artists in the Underground crafting different sounds that take from the Japanese art form. One of my favorite underground artists that does so is Space Dolphin, who recently dropped a track with Kay P, whom I had never heard before. Among hearing the opening bars of “Hentai Goddess” I knew he was my kind of artist and after churning through the rest of his Soundcloud discovered him to be one of my favorite recent finds. Not only is Kay P playing a big show coming up with fellow Underground heavyweight, Endyends, but he is working on an EP with another one of my favorites, Lil Soda Boi.
Who Are You? What Do You Wanna Tell The World About Yourself?
You feel me, it’s ya boy Kay P aka Triple Cup Trill Kay aka Yung Shiva tha GXD BODY, ain’t much for me to say right now because the world will know soon enough who we are. And yes I said we, I have many forms.
What/Who Are Your Main Inspirations For Making Music?
Really my main inspiration comes from my own homies doin’ the same shit as me and the many underground artist I’ve seen come up since I was a young rapping ass nigga. Seeing people that I’ve been listening to since back when they were struggling for a thousand plays blow up is amazing.
