Interview with Antdesu

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

I was Born in New York but raised in Georgia, close to Atlanta, and I’m half Panamanian and half Jamaican. I try to learn more Spanish I speak it many times when I’m frustrated, same for patois occasionally. But really I’m just a normal kid who has a interesting background like everyone else

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

It was around 2020, where I started making southern rap, and from there I just used it for venting. As far as idols and inspiration, that changes a lot, really just someone who I like their music if I were to name it would be way to many.

What kind of music do you do?

Ive mostly stuck to rnb and pop, some hyperpop some pluggnb, occasionally rap but really at this point every genre.

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

My most important song to me is Social. Social described my anti socially and how I’m used to being ignored by others especially whom I thought we my friends. Social opened up feelings that I usually have hidden, and still continue to hide, but I placed all of my feelings into that song. How I usually felt to put on a fake smile for the world, how I felt alone, and how I felt that I was too emotional. There’s always that phrase , “real men cry” , and I really had to start implementing that because whenever I felt down or depressed because of the world, anytime I did express it I felt I was being too emotional. So social really puts all of that in a nutshell.

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

I really don’t look for or force people to listen to my music or expect them to instantly become a fan, I do try my best to be relatable but if you’re a guy and you got your heart broken go cry to some of my love songs buddy lol!

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

Honestly, I can’t see myself that far. Really I just go with the flow day by day, and see whatever has for me. I’ve just started doing YouTube things and people have been very much supporting that, so I just really might continue being a YouTuber and making music, and see where both gets me.

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

The funniest thing that has happened to me as an artist is when one of my friends noticed me irl, he was like “you make music” and I was so creeped out and said yeah and we exchanged our socials, weirdest and craziest experience I’ve had while making music lol!
