Harlem-based RAPPER SNS started off and ended his recent interview at The Breakfast Club with freestyles, unlike most rappers who visit the platform. According to the artist, his freestyling serves as a way to bring emcees back. “We’re not rappers no more,” he comfortably stated. With his father (Big SNS) by his side, the Harlem-bred street rapper talked about his crew and movement called “Icy Gang Records,”why he dropped the “lil” from his name and the meaning behind SNS, which is “strive and succeed”. During the interview, he expressed his interest in having Diddy, a fellow Harlemite, on the remix of his record, and whether or not he calls favours from his father who happens to be a legendary DJ.
Legend has it, Migos “won” because “they came in the club a hundred deep. They bought a hundred bottles. I’m not saying everybody gotta do that but the perception runs the game. They came a hundred deep. Gave the DJ some paper, played Versace before Drake even jumped on it, before he even knew what it was. You’re in VIP, you see 100 guys going crazy for a record, the DJs going to say, “Oh my God, what’s this? I’m going to play it again.”
According to the DJ, it was the hottest record in Atlanta the following week and that’s how and when Drake caught wind of it. “Guys want to hear their records in prime time,” he continued. His son, SNS, followed up and said, “I don’t want no New York rappers to think that you have to follow that trend either. What works for somebody might not work for you.”
In addition, the young entertainer described his latest charitable efforts, and says that Icy Gang gave away book bags and other school supplies to the children in his neighborhood. His mother cooked out and they had a good time. Watch as the New York emcee explains why he stands out more than his competitors.
