Seasoned MC Pierre Debonair Drops 'Megatron' (Q&A)
In an industry based on following childish intention with adolescent methodology, you don't get too many chances to witness many examples of real poetic enthusiasm when it comes to an idea relating to artistry. Turning ideas into actions is hard enough; Pierre Debonair successfully makes this process an entertaining experience from start to finish.
Pushing for a complete sound and direction, Pierre makes way for a much more mature and refined style. Through melodic, lyrically-smooth delivery, Pierre's influence brings art and style that can only be described as "magnifique". Look forward to brand new music that will reveal a fresh and vibrant perspective from an already seasoned veteran in the music game.
Accustomed to the old school ideology of street life and struggle music,
Pierre now explores a highly versatile and mature approach to progressive music with an exquisite touch to detail in every step of the art.
"I'm bringing you the caviar and camembert all ready to go!" Pierre says.
Watch "Megatron" below and check out our Q&A with Pierre below:
Where are you from?
I'm from Seattle, Washington.
When and why did you start doing music? Tell us the story.
It all started around 1987. I was messing around with my brothers old school boom box and figured out how to record on them. I would put pieces of paper in the back of a cassette tape and hit record on the box. Till he found out I recorded over half of his music collection. At first it was me jus being a Dj and doin a bunch of different characters. A few years pass and me and school friend would meet up everyday and go to his house and record us rappin on an answering machine, we were about 11-12 years old. Dirt poor so that's all we had. The rest is history.
Tell us about "Megatron" (concept, creation, etc).
Megatron was created kinda by accident. We were just playin around in the studio getting are beat sound files up. Being creative and creating new sounds and we were like man let's slap these together. And it worked! Hella different but it was something new and didn't sound like anything I've ever heard. AND..Jus sayin "I did it first, Nikki" lol
Megatron is a vibe really. Can be used a lot of ways:
-Like you jus pulled up in a brand new whip drippin, that's Megatron.
-You made it out the hood and bought a new house, that's Megatron.
