Hi New ATL, could you introduce yourself?
I am Kenny Basi, a.k.a. West a.k.a. New ATL. I’m 20 years old. I grew up in a house filled with music. I live and breath music, and I try to grow as an artist every day. I make tracks whenever I can, and I often meet up and work with my friends and producers Mondanny, Migoho and IUMO.
Why did you call yourself New ATL?
My music is mostly inspired by the Atlanta scene, so that’s where my artist name comes from. It’s a good name, uncomplicated and easy to remember, so I think it works well.
What do you want your music to evoke in your audience?
I always try to communicate my mood while writing a song, I want my audience to join my universe, look at the world through my eyes. And I hope that they hear my message and run with it.
What do you hope to achieve with your music?
I want to keep improving and ultimately make some of the best hip hop music in Belgium.
