Interview with Absolute

Tell us about yourself, who are you and where do you come from?

I go by the name Absolute. I was born in Syracuse New York and currently live in Pensacola Florida. I’ve been a HipHop artist for about 10 years and released my first official project this year in 2023. I have 2 EPs out on all platforms. I’ve gotten to do features with some big artists like Future, Rick Ross and a few others. I’m in a pretty aggressive release mode right now just trying to make music for the people.

How was your passion for music born? Who are your idols?

It definitely started around when I was around 10. It just sort of found it’s way to me. I think the first full HipHop album I listened to was Get Rich or Die trying. Once I found that I started digging for more. I found Eminem, Tupac, Jay-Z, WuTang, Nas and dove down the rabbit hole. It’s been an addiction ever since. My biggest idols for me have probably been JR Writer, Em, Nas, Drake, Meek, guys who really found that blend between making strong music without sacrificing their own game.

What kind of music do you do?

It’s mostly lyrical HipHop. It’s a lot of clever bars and story telling over making hit songs or catchy tunes.

What is the most important song for you? What message do you want to convey to the listener?

The important songs are usually my more mellow tracks like “Don’t be Afraid” and “Falling down” They’re kind of my overcoming adversity tracks that go into detail about bouncing back from some pretty unique struggles.

Why should a listener who doesn’t know you listen to your music?

Well, I try to make a lil something for everybody. There’s some songs about my life I hope people can connect with. I’ve got some songs that are just feel good songs for Drives in the summer or turning up in the club. Some for the soul, some for the people who like clever lyrics. But most importantly when you hear me tell stories in my music with specific names or events, just know they’re real stories. I don’t make this shit up.

What are your future projects? Where do you see yourself 5 years from now?

I’ve got a lot more EPs coming. I like making the 8 tracks right now. It’s a good balance of not biting off too much. It’s easy listening, easy on the attention span. I really enjoy making music with others. I’m hoping to keep branching out. I’ve got some more big names coming this year, I’ve got music with Sean Kingston, Young Buck, Lil Flip, a lot of the old heads. I’m hoping to keep the music coming you know?

Tell our readers a funny episode that happened in your career as an artist.

Right now what’s funny is people who know me, but don’t know my music are discovering it from Spotify algorithms and playlists. My wife’s friends text her like “Hey, your husbands music is all over my Release radar! I didn’t even know he rapped!”
