Arguably one of the best producers right now, we just had to have a sit down with Anatii. He’s been in the game for a long time, but really gained commercial popularity in 2014 after he produced more than 10 songs that were featured on iTunes simultaneously. The list includes ‘My Own’ by DJ Milkshake, ‘Yaya’ by Dimplez ft. DreamTeam and of course his song of the moment ‘The Saga’ ft. AKA.
“I want people to be familiar with the type of stuff that I do,” he said. Much like other producers, he was trying to find his own sound and started experimenting with other genres before hip hop became the niche he excelled most in. “No matter what I do, I’m gonna sing the best possible version of it,” he said.
There has been a perception that Anatii is from a rich background which made it easy for him to find success. But that isn’t the case, he says. “It’s crazy because I’ve given up everything for music, it’s my life.”
Anatii is set to drop an album this year, no release date as yet. But trust that HYPE got you! Check out the full article the latest June/July issue in stores right now!
