Q: How does being of Polynesian descent give you a unique perspective of the Hip-Hop world as well as other Genres?
A: Being that I come from an offshoot and not where the Hip Hop Culture began (like most people), I naturally have a unique perspective to it. Being of Polynesian descent and being part of the Hip Hop Culture for me was actually pretty sick and weird all at the same time. When I was a kid the rap game was changing from dudes like Grand Masta Cas & Big Daddy Kane to Gangstarr (RIP), Wu Tang Clan and so on. And at the same time I was growing up in a place and generation that knew very little of Hip Hop. It was like people thought I wasn't being myself listening or doing that type of music. But to me, it was one of the only things that made me feel, like ME! My mom threw away two composition books when I was 16 lol; both of them filled with raps. My family has always been part of Polynesian shows. But growing up, all I wanted to do was play basketball and listen to music lol! Eventually I ended up performing at the local shows. Personally I pull towards Hip Hop because it was the voice of the oppressed, the so called "minority". I may be an islander but my life was/is heavily westernized. I am a mix within a culture of diverse mixed races. When I caught the vibe of Hip Hop and the Music (Along with R&B, Reggae, Soul) I felt like this was home. Finding similarities to African Americans and African American Culture was not hard at all; especially with music. Reggae and R&B were two others genres that I connected to a lot. Fayah~DDW
