The Boy Doing Things A-Reece recently popped on Forbes magazine and discussed his latest project, “Today’s Tragedy, Tomorrow’s Memory: The Mixtape,” his influences, and more.
In the interview, the songster admitted the “Donda” rapper Kanye West was one of his biggest influences. Not only does the American influence the way he raps but the way he produces as well. He calls Ye his idol.
He noted that he’s always wanted to know how Ye, who’s in the throes of a divorce from Kim Kardashian, could chop things up and put them back together beautifully. He aspires to similar creative excellence.
He also expressed a strong wish in his music making great impact in the lives of those who listen to it – for example, someone deciding not to commit suicide after listening to his song. He aspires to something timeless.
By the way, A=Reece’s latest body of work, “Today’s Tragedy, Tomorrow’s Memory: The Mixtape,” has been described by some of his fans as his finest work yet. The songster was to have released a sequel to his “Paradise” album of 2016 but decided to treat fans to the mixtape first.
“Paradise 2” may yet drop. Fans only have to keep their eyes peeled and stay tuned for updates.
