Fourth Head Nods Interview and we have SAKi Saki Saki!! Yes, NegroSaki.
Negrosaki, where are you from and how did you get your name?
I’m from Tampa, Florida. I got my name by just randomly choosing something that sounded cool to me. I dig the style and architectural aspect of Japanese culture, so that helped me with choosing the name. The “Negro” part isn’t as racial as people think. The name NegroSaki could easily be translated to Black Rice Wine.
How did you get started or inspired into making your own style of music?
I started beats in 2007, and I used to imitate other songs that I liked at the time. I was already able to play piano by ear since childhood, but I eventually started to venture into my own style once I got into Game Art & Design in college. That helped shape & mold the style of music you hear from me today.
Whats beat or set did you have the most fun making? Which beat was more challenging or difficult?
The beat I had the most fun making is called Dumbtarded Doodoo Stoopid, from my album “NegroSaki: From Scratch”. I had total freedom with it and I wasn’t afraid to venture into A.D.D. mode while making it. As far as a very challenging & difficult beat….well the main time I have a difficult time making something is if it’s for a beat battle. Sometimes I get producer’s block.
Do you have any influences?
Madlib, DOOM, Pharrell, Roy Ayers, Del The Funky Homosapien, Jniero Jarel, J DILLA (R.I.P.), Flying Lotus, 9th Wonder, NUJABES (R.I.P.), Lone
Those brothas had a greater impact on my music than anyone else.
Do you have any other artistic talents?
I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Game Art & Design, so I’m pretty decent at making 3D levels and animations. I can also draw and do photomanipulations.
What do you like to do to on your free time?
Make beats, eat cereal, draw, eat more cereal, make more beats, talk to YHWH (God), read the Bible, make more beats and then eat some more cereal.
What’s your favorite cereal?
Cinnamon Toast Crunch FTW!
Are you currently working on any projects?
I have two collab projects in the works. One with my younger brother IzoidBlizom, and one with my musical comrade RADICALEDWARD. I also plan to make the rest of my solo mixtapes dedicated to the Most High YHWH. I’ll keep everyone posted on my youtube & facebook.
