Scribe - Scribe Newsletter Interview

05 Nov 2007 // An interview by Shade
Scribe is one of the most prominent figures in the Aotearoa Hip-hop scene at the moment. He has just released his second album, 'Rhyme Book' which has been performing well on the NZ Album charts since it debuted four weeks ago at #4.

Here are his responses to our interview questions:

What is your greatest achievement?
My greatest achievement would be my daughter.

What do you think could be done to make NZ music even better?
I think NZ music is pretty good already. One thing that disappoints me is that the videos never do NZ music justice. So I would say an increase of the NZ On Air funding for videos, which is currently $5000.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Hopefully in 5 years I will be running my own label and I will still be making music.

What is the best thing about making music?
The best thing is that it's what I love most and it's my job!

What advice would you like to give to other aspiring musicians?
Believe in yourself and get a good manager who believes in you also.
 

About Scribe

Scribe is undoubtedly the shining star of New Zealand's much celebrated young hip-hop scene.

Following his outstanding guest appearances on P-Money's 'Big Things' album, Scribe has released his debut album 'The Crusader' in both New Zealand and Australia to much acclaim. Scribe is from Christchurch and is signed with Kog Transmissions.

"Scribe is arguably currently New Zealand's best rapper but if he continues pumping out material like what's contained on this, his debut album, he's bound for world domination."
