Interview with 鷹Shintendō64鷹

image

I was first introduced to Chicago based nerd – centric emcee/ composer 鷹Shintendō64鷹 via Youtube a few years back.  Shonen Domo being his preferred alias at the time performing B.T.F.U (Back the fuck up) with fellow T5 member Kyd Wah-Lee formerly Stamina. Aside from the clever name, his use of colorful language and nerd heavy references pulled me in.  It wouldn’t be until a year or two later when we were finally introduced.  It is my pleasure to introduce 鷹Shintendō64鷹

 


Lizzo: 

How would you describe your music to a new listener?

Shin:

To a new listener I would just tell them it’s music I get better to. Usually I’m in a bad state when making music so the end result is for it to be healing for me.

Lizzo:

You’ve many aliases.we’re they based on different periods in your life or simply creative names?

Shin:

Both. Can’t really answer it fully, but both.

Lizzo:

Anime and gaming are core elements in your music? How long have you been avidly in these fandoms?

Shin:

I’ve been playing video games and watching anime (&reading manga) ever since I was 7. Over the years it was only natural for me to develop a fandom for this stuff. But either way I’m glad I fell into those fandoms lol.

Lizzo:

Your Top 5 Animes of all time?

Shin:

Gundam 0079/ Dragon Ball / Naruto/ Inuyasha/ Pokemon

Lizzo:

Musically speaking, Who has had the most influence thus far? (Rappers, Singers, Composers/Beat makers etc)

Shin: 

Beat makers have really been motivating to me. Idk. Certain beats bring out a special influence that certain types of producers can hit right on. Personally Dilla and 9th wonder are those influences.

Lizzo:

Any up and coming projects?

Shin: 

I’m working on my third album titled “NINBASU” which is Nimbus in Japanese. Will be a dope listen where everyone can hear all of my influences! More info will be at:

supershintendo.com

Lizzo: 

tell us something your fans might not know about you.

Shin:

lol my fans don’t know that I’m an awkward asshole who just recently learned how to talk to people. Was under a rock for a good period of time due to the loss of a relative. 5 years to be exact. So when some meet me you’ll know that I’m not so knowledgeable in every day shit. I mean I AM…but you’ll understand when the time to meet me comes. o.o hopefully I would’ve fixed this problem lol.

Lizzo:

So let the fans know where and how they can find you?

Shin:

Everyone can follow me on twitter @shintendo64 and for my music and show dates (soon merchandise) is all available on

SUPERSHINTENDO.COM
