Can you introduce yourself?
Hi I'm Busu from neostockholm. I just dropped "116 RIP" video. [The] video is directed by my friend Natan Gullström and the track is made by me and Haydn.
When did you first start making music and what is it that got you into it in the first place?
I've been making music for like over ten years now. I've probably been doing it cause you can do it by yourself with your friends and some gear. I'm not good with authority and always wanted to do stuff mine and the gang's way, you know.
There's a rich history of outsider pop stemming from Sweden. Is there anything from this lineage that really inspired you to create your unique take on pop music?
I'm not really a pop artist, and I don't really care what anybody else does. I only listen to my gang's tracks these days to be honest. Haydn and Yemi got this song ready to drop any day now, it's going to be crazy. I'm also pretty done with inspiration, I got songs to write and people to feed, I don't have the time to wait for inspiration.
I make hip-hop, I have always been making hip-hop and I will always be making hip-hop. I just make hip-hop from my perspective, some people don't see that at first, but give em' a sec and they'll recognize. I'm one of the first truly European rappers. There’s no conflict, no better or worse we are just evolving on another path, we are equals. We are like the Russian brown bear and the grizzly. Different names, different behavior, and different continents but the same species.
