Seven Questions with Sam Austins

Headlining your first event, how does it feel to know you’ve made it to this point—and where would you like to see the future lead?

To be in this position, it’s humbling and just a testament to hard work—but it’s still just the very beginning.

If you had to describe ‘Sam Austins’ to fans in one sentence, what would you say?

Sam Austins is for the culture.

During the creative process, is their any particular influences throughout life that you look back on to get inspired?

I’ll never forget the feeling I had going to the ‘Yeezus’ tour, or being the first to download a loose ‘Drake’ track before “Take Care” dropped. Moments like G.O.O.D Fridays, and discovering Toro Y Moi’s “Anything In Return” for the first time. Playing the video game “Rock Band”, leading as the vocals. These times are what made me who I am today so it comes out naturally without me forcefully tapping in.

Being a young up & comer on the scene, is there anything that worries you about the road ahead?

I wouldn’t say anything worries me but I’m more-so anxious. I’m ready for whatever this path has to offer me and I’m willing to kick down all the doors that they have in front of me, if necessary.

How was teaming up with Take A Daytrip & ‘FIJI’ water—and do you have a lifetime supply of FIJI now?

Clicking up with Daytrip is amazing. Those are my brothers and I love working with them. As for me and ‘FIJI’, we’re not affiliated but I heard some of their people like the song!

If you could collaborate with any one established artist in the future who would you choose & why?

I gotta choose Cudi. I appreciate his artistry so heavily and he helped get me through my high school depression. He’s the GOAT.

And lastly, what can we expect in 2018 for Sam Austins in terms of new music?

I can’t say much but know that I’m coming back harder than I ever have. I have goodies for all. Haha.

Big Gov & Pierre Anthony - “No Love”

From one of the most impactful award-winning albums out of Detroit in recent times “Betrayal” comes some brand new visuals for one of my personal standouts “No Love“. Big Gov & Pierre Anthony be on some sorta peanut butter & jelly combo of hip-hop havoc when they join forces so it was definitely dope to get some top-notch visuals to aid such a fantastic record. D’juan Graves was the mind behind the lens that provided this excellent vision, shout out to all the directors out there capturing creatively! Big Gov’s album “Betrayal” featuring “No Love” is out now everywhere. If you’ve been sleeping, well… it’s time to wake your ass up from that nap & press play!
