Multidisciplinary Asian artist, Kuma Overdose, tells VIPER all about his favourite mixtape – and it’s a great choice btw…
What’s your favourite mixtape ever?
‘Yes Lawd!’ By Nxworries [Anderson Paak x Knxwledge]
Why is it so significant to you?
It literally shaped the way to approach songwriting for me. As an all-in-one musician who does literally everything from producing to writing to mixing, I really looked up to this tape as I grew these few years. The soul is there, you know.
Were there any artists or producers that you discovered through this tape?
Knxwledge, who is the co-star of the tape. He flips samples like Gordon flips steaks, that good.
Where exactly were you when you heard the mixtape for the first time?
At a cookout in my friend’s backyard (My friend cooks some bomb carnitas btw)
Did it come into your life at a significant time?
It hit me harder than a wrecking ball.
How did the mixtape cover make you feel?
Sensational. Absolutely sensational. I felt like I was riding a flying buffalo through the wonders of the world.
Describe the mixtape in three words?
Oh, my, days.
What song is your personal favourite?
‘Can’t Stop’ but I find the favourite song question to be so hard to answer.
If you could put a price on this mixtape, how much would you pay?
$420.69 (Tax included)
Did you have a physical copy?
Yes lawd I do, a limited one too actually.
