Mistr Adams Interview for Spate Magazine

What's up Mistr Adams? For those new to the name where are you from and what do you do?

I'm from New York, OceanSide Long Island. I'm a Producer/Singer/Songwriter

When did you know music was the career path you wanted to follow?

I've always been involved with music since I was young, but I didn't develop a career passion for it until i was around 17 Years old. Thats when it all started to come together and everything felt right.

Who inspires you musically?

Vinylz, Boi1da, Cardiak and The J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League for sure.

How do you describe your sound?

I think this is always the toughest question. Its Different though, weird intricate melodies with a signature drum bounce to most of my production.

Congrats on the new G Unit placement with 'Ballin' on 'The Beast is G Unit', how did the placement happen and how does it feel to work with them?

I got a Facebook message from a good friend of mine Drawzilla. He put me on to a private listening session that G-unit was having with J Hatch and that they were looking for beats. I showed up, played about 8 records, they picked 6 and 1 made the album. The feeling of making any album cut is amazing. I grew up listening to a lot of the Unit, who knew i would produce for them years later? The vibe is dope.

You also wrote and sung the hook on Rick Ross' artist ScottyBoi ep 'Black Funeral' called 'Down', so you are basically an artist now too?

Yes, Second to producing. I do a lot of hook writing for other producers and artists, so its always a great look when you make that writing placement.

Do you feel being a triple threat helps you or gives you an advantage when placing records?

Yes definitely. If the production is dope by itself, its a good look when theres a hook on it. It gives the artist a better understanding of the record and the overall concept. Also it boosts up your chances of them choosing that record as well.

What's your experience been like with iStandard thus far?

Nothing but good vibes. I did my first showcase when I was 17, which later got me in the door to Def Jam. By working with them i got placements with King Los and Bizzy Crook. Did a lot of traveling to different iStandard events, met a lot of major people which opened the door for me to new opportunities. iStandard is a great platform for networking and relationships, and thats what this whole industry is about.

You've recently been in studio with Mack Wilds, can we expect a collab?

Cant speak too too much about it, but it is a great possibility.

What else are you currently working on?

Currently working on a record with SlowBucks, other major song writers and producers, and my own team as well. Just getting a catalog of amazing records together to shop. Both quality and quantity is very important to me.
