Pasha Talks Hip Hop Scene in Norway & Says He Wants Rappers To Steal His Flows

Pasha is a rising artist in Norway’s Hip Hop Scene. Last month he released his new video for ‘Purple Pudding’.

He has been putting in work and has performed alongside 6ix9ine, Ty Dolla $ign, Khalid, Marshmello, Anderson .Paak, GoldLink, Rich Brian, G-Eazy, Martin Garrix, French Montana, and Macklemore.

Where are you from? Have your surroundings shaped you in a creative sense, and in what way(s)?

I’m from Rykkinn, Norway – the hood in the whitest place in the world.

What sparked your interest in becoming a music artist?

A lot of my friends started making house music at first. So I just started rapping over party music early on. Where I’m from people don’t really got it that bad. So I wanted to make something positive that showed where I’m from.

There’s not that many rappers where I’m from so it’s harder to get love from my city if I don’t relate to where I’m from.

All of your music doesn’t have the quintessential Hip Hop sound. How would you describe the music you do?

I was 8. Heard Eminem for the first time and fell in love with it. Since then I’ve always known I wanted to be a rapper.

What is the Hip Hop scene like in Norway?

I would say it has a hint nostalgia and funk, and some next level shit nobody else is on. And good energy.

What difficulties have you encountered if any, getting noticed as an artist in Norway?

It’s great. It’s beginning to grow bigger than ever and it’s starting to have its own sub-genres in different cities.

Do you believe it is important for new artists to know the history of Hip Hop when they come into the industry?

I can only speak for myself. If I didn’t know the history, I wouldn’t have known as much as I do or would have made the music I make. Building a fanbase. Being independent. It’s more work but it pays off more for me.

Are you an artist who says they do not listen to the music of other artists? Or, are you fan as well as an artist?

Of course I listen to other artist. I think it’s stupid not to. How can you be inspired by listening to yourself all the time.

Which artists are you a fan of currently?


Tell us about the first song you ever recorded. What was the title and was it a success or a failure in your opinion?

It was called “Persian” and it sucked so bad. My friend made me this crazy beat, it probably sucks now, but I remember I had a lot of help recording it. Like bar for bar like Eazy-E I and was so proud of it. But nobody liked it, haha.Pasha Talks Hip Hop Scene in Norway & Says He Wants Rappers To Steal His Flows

What do you hope to accomplish with your music?

Inspiring other people. I want rappers to steal my flows and producers to try to replicate my sound and kids to know all my lyrics…. Just like me when I was a kid.

What aspect of the music making process excites you most?

Demand. Sometimes it’s the writing and recording and sometimes it’s the beat making. Overall everything except re-recording.

If you could take anyone on a date dead or alive, who would it be?

Dua Lipa.

What is next for Pasha? What do you want your supporters (new and old) to know about you?

More tunes. Get ready!!!
