Mista Mista - Exclusive SXSW Interview
In mid-March, emerging artists and hip-hop heavyweights alike gathered in Austin, Texas for the 25th annual South by Southwest festival, which included an all-star showcase sponsored by DJBooth.net (Click here to read our exclusive, live-blogged SXSW coverage!). For the fourth in a series of interviews shot over the course of the week, DJBoothTV‘s own Jacques Morel chops it up with Mista Mista, the Rhode Island representative who brought us “Cheers” and “All In.”
In the exclusive video interview below, Mista Mista discusses the emotion and personal experience that goes into his music, the art of balancing lyrical depth with mainstream appeal, and the upbeat vibes fans can expect from his forthcoming Above It All street album.
