Abstract Interview


​A little under a month ago I was fortunate enough to interview Abstract, a rapper from Jackson, Wyoming. Within the interview we gathered how Abstract met his crew (Blulake, Cryo, Drumma, and the many others), where Abstract drew his inspiration growing up, and even a unique talent that most people would never be able to guess. On top of all this, we also got some very small hints about his upcoming album and it’s connection to his previous album Something to Write Home About as well as that this upcoming album isn’t going to be his last. This upcoming album is one of his proudest pieces of work and he feels that it is overall telling a story. We also learned a bit more of some other things that Abstract would like to branch out and do besides music. The interview has much more within it besides what I mentioned here, listen and find out for yourself. And as always, huge thanks to Abstract and all those who made this interview possible.
