Litt Green Interview by Zaahir " The Planet X Ambazzador "

 

June 14 , 2014

Zaahir: What was the first hip hop song you heard?

 

Litt Green: Wow, I don't know exactly what the first song was but I do know that Me, Myself, and I by De La Soul was the first Hip Hop song that had an impact on me and helped me draw a connection to Hip Hop. The sample, loops, the style of Posdnuos and Trugoy, and content showed me it was no limits to the music.

 

Zaahir: What distinguishes you from other artists?

 

Litt Green: Maybe my thought process of writing to Hip Hop of music. I like to ride certain parts of the beats and arrange around it. More like a song writer of any other genre but definitely in a "rapping" form.

 

Zaahir: How did you come up with the name litt green?

 

Litt Green: It comes from a childhood nickname. I was the younger of two Jason's in my neighborHood. So I was Little Jason then it evolved to Little J, to Little, Litt. Just added my government name Green.

 

 

Zaahir: Whats your favorite musical instrument?

 

Litt Green: The Fender Rhodes. I love that sound when played right or wrong. Those keys dig into my soul.

 

Zaahir: What inspires you?

 

Litt Green: Life inspires me. Musically, music itself is my inspiration being that I'm a writer and don't play any instruments or make beats/instrumentals. If I feel the music I run with it and create. No crazy science to it.

 

Zaahir: What to you is the perfect beat?

 

Litt Green: Not sure what a perfect beat is but I love tracks that hit me from the first time I hear and when I listen to it days, months, or years later.

 

Zaahir: When did you record your first song?
