Savage

Savage is a founding member of rap crew the Deceptikonz, and is the first New Zealand rapper to have a platinum record in the United States (‘Swing’). Last year he returned to the charts with ‘Freaks’, a collaboration with Timmy Trumpet, and now he’s coming to O-Week! Here is Salient’s interview with the great man.

Salient: Hi Savage, nice to meet you. What are you most looking forward to when you come to Wellington?

Savage:

Outstanding. Do you have any wild stories from previous trips to the capital?

Savage:

Wow, that’s really interesting. When did that happen?

Savage:

Yeah, Dawson’s Creek is great. You took a while out from releasing new material after the success of ‘Swing’, can we expect to see much new stuff in the near future?

Savage:

Interesting. So has anybody come forward yet with information about where the freaks at?

Savage:

And what did they say?

Savage:

Cool. No, I don’t like celery either.

Savage:

Yeah, it’s gross, I don’t see the appeal at all. Who would you say are your main influences?

Savage:

Before or after Swordfishtrombones?

Savage:

Cool. Where do you hope to go in the future?

Savage:

Oh, like literally?

Savage:

That’s cool. Mars is dope. Aren’t you worried about the lack of atmosphere though?

Savage:

One last question: shoot, shag, marry—Scribe, King Kapesi and P-Money?

Savage:

I’d never thought of it like that before. Thanks Savage, looking forward to the gig on Thursday!

Savage:

 

Savage is performing live at the Hunter Lounge on Thursday 26 February.
