Interview with, ‘Myles Borders’
Where are you from?
Kansas City, Missouri
How long have you been making music?
I’ve been a songwriter since I was 10 years old.
How many songs /albums have you released to date?
I have an EP titled “Magnum Opus” with my groupmate Chill D of Anomalous Intent.
Can you tell us about your latest release and the background and inspirations behind it?
My song Go Crazy was written about 5-6 months ago and it only took me 25 minutes to write the song. I wanted to go in a different direction with my songs and make a record that was hype and upbeat. It has a west coast feel to it but I’m from the Midwest so there’s obvious inspiration just from that.
How have you ended up in the music industry?
Chill D, Supreme, and Khalil. Those are the guys that I started rapping with once I took rapping more seriously.
What do you think of the music industry in 2019?
It’s evolving, a lot of artists are taking risks sonically and it shows in their music. There are also artists who are taking the independent route and taking control of their career which is dope, I’m all for being your own person and standing up for what’s yours.
Who do you think the most influential artist?
In my opinion it’s between Wayne and Kanye. Maybe Drake too just for this generation but definitely those two guys.
Who have you collaborated with so far in your career?
Supreme, KB 400, and Swavy Ju. Talented guys man, I mess with their energy and their vibes artistically.
How do you think you differ from other artists?
I actually rap and most of my music has substance. That’s what i try to pride myself on, I don’t want sound like everybody else.
Dead or alive, who would be your dream collaboration?
What was the first album you bought?
2Pac’s album “All Eyez on Me”, that i was the first album i listened to, my mom put me onto that.
What’s your favourite song at the moment?
Pop Out by Polo G
If you had to sell your music collection tomorrow, what album would you leave in your draw?
Ask me the same question next year.
What is your favourite saying?
What other hobbies or interests do you have?
I play ball in my free time, and make beats.
Do you have any tattoos or piercings?
A nose piercing but no tats yet.
Tell us more about your upcoming project or this new project?
My debut mixtape titled “Overly Misunderstood” is dropping this year, i don’t have a set release date but be on the lookout for that.
What’s in the pipeline after this project?
Thank you for your time and may you carry on making great, fresh music.
