Recently, Breaking Music Magazine had the chance to sit down with one of the best MCs from Denver, CO. We asked Ethan Hunt 10 questions, here is what went down:
Breaking Music Magazine – Thanks for taking time out of your day to talk to us. Where did your stage name come from?
Ethan Hunt – My name came from the movie franchise “Mission Impossible”, I loved the spy concept and coming from Denver, Colorado and expecting to make it to the big leaves me with an Impossible Mission.
BMM – How long have you been doing music? How did you decide to make it a career?
EH – I have been writing poetry since the 3rd grade and I have been doing music for 10 years now. I knew when I was 5 years old that music would be my career because music is my life. I just stopped everything else and start focusing on the music.
BMM – Have you done and cool collabs in your career? Who’s your favorite collab you’ve done? Who would you love to collab with?
EH – I’ve done some collabs with some local artist from Colorado. I would love to do a song with Lupe Fiasco. That collab would be tremendous.
BMM – Not a lot of Rappers come out of Denver. How is the music scene there?
EH – The music scene here is rising; I feel like in Colorado there isn’t a sound like the other places. Fans don’t really support local artist because there waiting for “the powers that be” to tell them what is hot or what to support.
BMM – What are you listening to right now? What’s the best album or mixtape so far this year?
EH – I’m listening to Born Sinner, Magna Carter Holy Grail, and NoPain NoFame! I really don’t mess with mixtapes but anything Pusha T spits on I’m with.
BMM – What can you tell us about Mile High Bad Azz Entertainment?
EH – Mile High Badazz Entertainment is a local label out of Colorado. I recorded at their studio and did some collabs with some artist from B.A.E.
BMM – Your lyrics can get very deep at times. What do you draw from? How have your lyrics been received?
EH – I draw from my life experiences and knowledge of self. I don’t want to be preachy but I need my message to be heard. It’s funny that you ask about how my lyrics are received. I’ve had so many people approach me and ask me who helped me write the songs or who wrote the songs. I take it as a compliment that people don’t think I can dig that deep. I love expressing my feelings .
BMM – Can we get your top 5 or even top 10 favorite MCs of all time?
5. Dre 3000
7. Lupe Fiasco
BMM – What one song from your last album are you most proud of? What one song would you tell a new listener they have to go check out?
EH – I’m proud of the entire CD, but my favorite track is Flashbacks, the song I would tell the people to listen to is The Alpha Address. The CD takes you on an emotional rollercoaster.
BMM – What does the rest of 2013 look like for you?
EH – 2013 looks bright; I plan on introducing my message and music to the world in 2013.
