Interview: Janset talks shaking off 'good for a girl' label, spitting in Turkish and motive for new EP

Interview: Janset talks shaking off 'good for a girl' label, spitting in Turkish and motive for new EP

Following a solid 8 years in the game grafting hard as a progressive MC and artist, the London born and raised Janset is here with her new EP 'Keep it Humble', which follows last year's release on Fatback Records. Check this revealing interview we held where she discusses her ethnic heritage and how it has influences her lyrics, her approach to spitting over bass heavy beats, and how she deals with people shocked to see she's a girl that can actually spit! 

  1. How would you describe the lane within the musical landscape which you're operating in?

I feel like you either create your own lane or the lane you’re in creates you. I’ve found that a lot of people find it difficult to classify the music I make, I think the process of doing that is pretty useless anyway..  Why must everyone fit into a designated category or a box? That’s just marketing tactics. I don't make music to be marketed, therefore, I'm trying to paint my own musical landscape where there is rawness and realness, where my observations and experiences can be understood through humorous flows and melodies.

Music that is sometimes full of bass, sometimes full of space. I make piano symphonies and rap over them with no beat sometimes, or dubstep, grime, hip hop, sometimes drum and bass, reggae (even more so with my live band now) and also make soundtrack music which is very spacey, unsettling/dark and ambient.. So I don’t know how to answer this really but what I do know is. Humans are layered souls and as an artist I like to focus on the layers. So I guess my musical landscape is vast, real and ever changing (Just like life.)

  1. On 'dropping them bombs' you drop some foreign lyrics - what was the language you incorporated and were those significantly controversial to be translated?

That’s Turkish… my family were born and raised there however I'm originally half Chechnyan and half Circassion (which is basically in the same region, just different mountains) but speak Turkish rather than our own native language because my parents were raised there. So last year I was sitting around in my studio one day and writing bars (as you do) and, as I was writing for a producer/friend who lives in Istanbul, I thought it would be cool to include some Turkish words so the listeners could relate if they couldn’t understand anything else.

Blatantly Blunt interviews Sadat X "Rappers are a lot less fearless today"

Blatantly Blunt interviews Sadat X "Rappers are a lot less fearless today"

With a deep rooted legacy in the golden era of hip hop, Sadat X is one of the few rappers who can claim to still be working with some of the best in the game. Having made his name as one quarter of Brand Nubian alongside Grand Puba, Lord Jamar and DJ Alamo, Sadat X has recently dropped a dope new album 'Agua' which is out now on Tommy Boy Records. In this interview with Nick Russell and Ethan Saunders he discusses a range of issues, from how he got his name, how he ended up working with B.I.G and who he rates in today's hip hop game. 

Q1:  The name of the new album is  'Agua', literally ‘water’ in Spanish. What’s behind the concept, and why is it so important to you?

Sadat X: Yeah the album is called ‘AGUA’ literally water in Spanish, because if you notice, most of the world, most of this earth, is covered by water. Water is still the greatest trade route. You know water when healthy can nourish you, when bad, can give you dysentery. You understand? So this album is just like water for your brain, you know - to make you think.

Q2: You have a dream team of producers on the new record, for those long time fans who've been down since 'Wild Cowboys', can we expect a re-collaboration between you and legendary producer; Minnesota anytime soon?

Sadat X: Well yes Minnesota is my man - understand that; Bronx location, Money Boss Players, so Minnesota is always in effect in my mind and I’m definitely going get back with him in the near future.
