I was first introduced to part 2’s music by his publicist @_iPublicist_ceo who put me on to his website and Facebook page. Instantly I could hear his music was very different to the sound of American Hip Hop and extremely familiar to the sound of the UK rap scene who mix pop with rap music to generate that Electro/Hip Hop sound. When talking with him I mentioned that he reminded me of our UK International Artist Tinie Tempah who also uses that Electro Hip Hop sound here in Europe which has helped him become an International star across the globe. Part 2 who is currently in the studio recording his first complete album spoke with me around topics such as The European sound to his music, his influences, his EP ‘Don’t Shoot The Martian’
We even spoke on the current state of hip hop by talking Common, Drake, Nicki Minaji and Lil’ Kim. Part 2 Is a strong believer in creativity as such his facebook page reads:
Part 2 is a ambitious human being who challenges young men and women to fight for liberation and believes that creativity and ingenuity can change the world. As a recording artist, it is his obligation to inspire and uplift his community through art and performance. In doing so he is notably emerging as one of the most innovative young pioneer’s in pop culture.
Don’t Shoot The Martian is Part 2’s first album EP release. With production from Aaron Rash, he creatively fuse’s elements of hip hop, electro-pop and alternative music genre’s to form one distinct sound of his own. The ambient burst of electric guitars, synths and 808’s are combined with his uptempo vocal delivery that takes command of the energetic cadences.
This is why he remains different to the rest which is also the basis behind his EP name which he explains below. Check out what Part 2 had to say below with part 2 (No Pun Intended) of our conversation after the jump!
All i can say is WOW?! There is way too much going on in this song. I can’t work Nicki out, one minute she’s winning (Monster) next she’s losing (Check It Out) Well you can listen below and while you do ill be listening to ‘Roman In Moscow’ Cause this isn’t going to make the hip hop community take her seriously! Especially dedicating an entire song to the Lil’ Kim beef!
As she stated above it’s hard for most female rappers to make it in the music industry but since the success of Nicki many industry people are more inclined to sign new females to their roster.
It’s no secret that Canibus is J Cole’s favourite rapper alongside Tupac. Well the strange thing is Canibus has decided to start firing shots at his biggest fan with the most ridiculous reason for doing so might i add. Take a listen after the jump to the track and you can read Canibus’ reasons why he has taken up such a dislike for one of the hottest rappers out right now Cole!
