Dartmouth born emcee Thrillah is easily the most buzzed about artist in Halifax’s thriving hip-hop scene. One of Thrillah’s best qualities is his ability to think and rap sensually. His luscious flow combined with beat pauses that highlight his tongue-twisted lyrical pace. Thanks to versatile and energetic artists like Thrillah, Halifax is seeing a new wave of rap culture. Here is our interview with this up and coming hip-hop artist:
What inspires you to create music?
The right environment with good vibes good people and the ear candy instrumentals also things that go on in my life could really inspire the creative side of a record.
Do you have a process to your songwriting or when creating music?
I would normally go through several beats, choose one to vibe with and record multiple voice memos with different styles, flows and stories over the beat until the proper one stands out to me.
How has your music evolved since you first became a recording/performing artist?
I’m most comfortable with the hip-hop/rap side of things. I always do enjoy writing R&B and I’m never afraid to step out of my comfort zone and try working with different genres of music. The music has gotten stronger, better quality and the stage presents also has strengthened. I’m much more comfortable in front of a crowed. Before it was more on and then off the stage type of deal, now once I get started I don’t want to leave, I love to interact with the fans and just make sure everybody is satisfied before the shows done.
