Catching Up With Darian $wank

Catching Up With Darian $wank

Where are you from? Have your surroundings shaped you in a creative sense, and in what way?

I’m from Miami, Florida. Creatively, Miami isn’t the best place to be deadass. A lot of distractions and temporary temptations and shit that throws you off. It’s a cool place to throw a party and do some wild shit but not the place to work in. It’s cool though. Crazy shit… yea

What’s your background like? What do you mean?

Like family? I was born here but my family is Cuban and comes from Hispanic roots. Whole lotta sandal marks on your ass as a kid .

Who are your top 5 favorite artists?

Oof, I hate this question. I feel that my top 5 changes depending on what category we’re talking about. If we’re speaking about lyricist, it’ll be different from artistic top 5 and so on. Top 5 artists for me, in general, would probably be (in no order) Darian , Travis, Ye, Chance, Thug… and honorable mention, La … oh fuck, I love 2008 Wayne though.

What made you start making music?

Buying 808 and Heartbreak and Tha Carter 3. I was 10 when I went to this small CD shop and grabbed them, threw them in the car radio and it changed the way I saw music period. 808 introduced a lot of new sounds to me and the idea of artistic freedom and Carter 3 was just the coolest shit I’ve heard. I had it on repeat over and over and it got to the point where the actual disc got fucked up and I had to buy it again. But yea those two albums made Darian .

Who are your biggest influences?

I grab inspiration from everyone I hear and rock with. Stage energy and performance standards, Travis… yea his shit is like perfectly orchestrated chaos and that’s what makes all of this worth it. Musical creativity, Kanye. Kanye just knows what to do man. Locked into a tunnel vision mindset and just makes the next step in everything perfect.

What’s your favorite song at the moment?

Can Tell off Rodeo… or WHO? WHAT! off ASTROWORLD…. or Skeletons… or Richard Millie Plain by Gunna… my bad this a hard ass question

What keeps you going? How you doing mentally?

I’m inspired by everything around me. Art, colors, poverty, fashion, sex. Anything that keeps me going in my direction. Mentally I’m in a spot where I’m getting ready to take my spot next to the best out right now. I’m La and for those who know that, they know the energy I bring. If you don’t yet we’re about to find out. I’m not one of these fake sad, temporary dudes doing this right now for some attention.

How would you describe your style?

ENERGY. High energy only and all that. shit only and all that. I’m just giving everyone an experience. I move around sounds a lot but regardless of what’s being played, it’s always energy. Reckless and trouble making shit but dope shit.

What do you hope to accomplish in 2019?

I want to start performing and make every single show seem like you’re trapped in an amusement park on this rollercoaster that might fly off the rails and you don’t know if to be hyped as fuck or scared out of your mind. But you’re sitting there either way with a smile on your face thinking “fuck it. Let’s go then”. I want to get signed to Cactus Jack. I don’t know how long that’ll take but that’s my big goal right now. Bigger than making my first million. That’s my big goal. Talking to Travis or jumping on a stage with him and rocking that chain that says CACTUS JACK… I don’t know what I’d do. I’d spazz out on life and just go 47 times harder. Sign me to Cactus Jack. $WANKCACTUSJACK

 

Thank you so much for the opportunity man. This is so cool to me.
