262: The Library: Descendent Interview (Part 1)

Library Rap: The Hip Hop Interviews with Tim Einenkel

Jun 4 2015 • 23 mins

This week on the Library, Tim talks to Descendent, a new independent artist from Newport News, Virginia but currently living in Raleigh, North Carolina. Tim and Descendent discuss a few tracks from his album Road to Greatness: Journey of a Lost Soul and why he has not taken on the persona a lot of new mainstream artists have taken on.

He tells Tim

“Once you tell a lie, you have to keep up with that lie. And that's a full time job if you really think about it. If you keep up that facade of whomever your copying or mimicking on stage or in the music, you're going to have some people think that's really you. I didn't want to live my life like that.
