INTERVIEW : 1990BISHOP


The 90's had some great Hip-Hop music, Nas, 2Pac, Biggie, Wu-Tang, Dr.Dre, Jay Z, the list is really endless. I'm assuming most of you reading were born in the 90's as well. We've grown up in a tremendous time where we have been able to see the evolution of Hip-Hop in front of our eyes, 90's to the early and late 2000's and now only a year away from 2020 I can only imagine how Hip-Hop will sound in 5 years from now. Let's go back in time right around almost 3 decades ago, we're in 1990. 1990 has a new meaning now and is making waves across the music scene as they are beginning to grow a powerhouse of a roster. This week we sat down with 1990Bishop, the 19 year old out of Leesburg, VA to talk about his goals for his career, what he would do if he won $10 million dollars, and who he would work with if he had a chance to collaborate with any artist in the world.

Q. So since there isn’t a music scene there where did you find your inspiration for being a creative? Was there someone you looked up to growing up?


A. "frfr Childish Gambino was the reason I started making music he inspired me a lot and then I saw an artist named fridaynite making music on twitter and he was from the area and so i was like I guess people would support me so I just started making music. ( they didn’t support me )"


Q. So when did you start creating and how did you get into everything?
