Interview With Curtains

Could you tell us abit about yourself and how you got the name Curtains?
"Curtains comes from just having that attitude that you are the end all be all. When you come thru any function, its over, shut down, done deal. CURTAINS."

You recently released your mixtape called "Killer Tape" is there anything you like to say about it?
"Killer Tape is an audio manifestation of inspiration and motivation. I'm just tryna inspire those ears out there to do better and reach beyond whats infront of them."

Is "Killer Tape" different to your other mixtapes if so how come?
"Yes. I get way more personal into my life than I have on any project in my career."

There a song on the mixtape called "Maniac" and it featured Kendrick Lamar and Chace Infinite what was it like working them?
"That record was amazing getting done. Kendrick emailed me his verse back and Chace came thru like 4 in the morning and dropped his verse. I actually got to see his process and it was super dope, seeing him hearing the song to laying his verse down. Chace been like my big bro for almost 8 years now so I look up to him, Kendrick is absolutely one of my favorite rappers of the now."

Its still early days but are you happy so far how well the mixtape is doing?
"I'm beyond amazed at the response its been getting from the people and the media. The response has been insane."

On the internet I read you quit music a few years ago and was working one day, your friend Lupe Fiasco came in to the store you was working in did that have affect on you to back to music?
"Yea, just seeing him happy doing what he loved and making a living, getting his message out there and doing it his way, that motivated me to get back in the ring and contend."

Is there any artists and producers you would like to work with in the next year or so, if so is there any reasons why?
"Pusha T cuz he raps really well."

Do you feel you could ever get on to the XXL Freshman list, as you never put out a offical album before under a label so you still could make the list?
"I feel that I am a good contender for the list. Who knows."

So what does the next year hold for Curtains?
"Tour, Album, & more #Killer"

Is there anything else you would like to say?
