The Artist Profile returns with local rapper from The 970, Andy Pablo! This episode promotes his first independent EP release titled “Still Learning.”
Andy comes from Vail, Colorado and is currently attending college at Colorado Mountain College in Glenwood Springs, CO. He has been writing songs and rapping since the age of 17. He spent the last year writing a few brand new songs, and well as re-using and repurposing some old lyrics. These efforts manifested in the release of his first EP, “Still Learning”
Andy studies some of his favorite rappers for inspiration, examples include Erick the Architect from Flatbush Zombies, Joey Bada$$, and Logic.
Featured in this interview is the track “Don’t Trust,” one of the darker tracks on the EP. “In my head, trust can’t be reimbursed, so when that gets broken it’s a big thing. When I was writing the song it helped me to project what I was feeling without harming those people that burned me. There’s no sense in vengeance and revenge.”
Andy believes that MC’s should address and promote positivity, equality, and love. He says that while these things are in people’s minds, but he believes they should be more of a focus.
