Working with rappers I used to listen to: Interview + 5 beats from Producer False Ego

Another producer who I have kept my eye on over the past year.

False Ego has racked up on his time on YouTube;

  • 29, 518 subscribers
  • 6, 523, 309 Views / 142 videos

How old are you? 

21, just turned 21 in August

Where are you from?  

I’m from the UK, but more specifically Birmingham, England. Although I’m half Thai and half Finish I was also born here in the UK.

Hardware or software?what kind?

I tend to use Logic Pro X as I started with GarageBand, although sometimes dabble with Ableton. I mainly use my keyboard and Akai MPD drum / sampler, but also sometimes add live instrumentation via guitar

How long have you been producing?

I’ve been properly producing for maybe 2-3 years, but started messing around in garage band maybe 4-5 years ago, but actually began learning about music since I was a kid – mostly just playing guitar

What’s the dopest thing to happen to you since you started making music and releasing product?

The dopest thing to happen – I can’t decide between two. One being working with other artists around the world, I love connecting because it’s so hard to where I’m from. There aren’t many artists from Birmingham and even if they are they don’t match my instrumentation as well as I’d like to, that’s why having the internet / youtube platform is amazing to me. Also working with Michael Christmas and Supa Bwe for my next mixtape / project would have to be something dope – since I used to listen to them and would never imagine having them on one of my beats. Another dope thing would have to be making a reasonable income from this, it’s something I would have never dreamed of being able to do, but now it’s happening I’m just kinda shook by it, so happy though.

What is something about you people would be surprised to know?

I don’t think people would be surprised to know anything about me, cause they don’t know much about me in the first place hahahaha

What do your beats normally cost?

Who has been your favorite artist to produce for?

Maybe Rossi Rock, our collab was fire, haven’t talked in a while but he’s on tour with Madeintyo with his new project atm so I’m sure he’s doing good as hell

How many leases or beats, do you think you have sold in your career?

Wouldn’t be able to tell you, a lot. My site could, but in total I’d have to consider leases I used to sell just through direct email contact.

Vice of choice?

Vice of choice? Haha, perhaps weed every now and then. But when I had my first psychedelic experience that really changed my perspective on everything, even outside of music. But staying in the realm of music I’d have to say it also did have a profound effect on how I go about creating.

Want to give any shoutouts?

Any other guys on YouTube producing, Origami, Gambi, Omito and the BeatPlug. Crazy how some guys I’ve talked to on this YouTube game have actually produced for big names. I’ve collabed with Ignorvnce who was on Desiigners new mixtape so I’d deffo give a shoutout to all those guys producing on YouTube.
