Manic’s Upcoming Album Art.
Meet THEOTHERNIGHT, the underground rap scene’s upcoming musical mystery-man. The 18 year old, Mississippi native, and synth-melody inspired artist has created his own lane by infusing bouncy 808’s and emotional, ambient melodies with a raspy harmonic textured voice. Directly quoted from him, his sonic inspirations include The Weeknd, Partynextdoor, Kanye West, Polica, and Yori, a Mississippi native who happens to be his brother in Christ. Although we interviewed the “Care” rapper, there was only so much information we could get because of his request to keep him enigmatic.
Manic is his upcoming album. No release date has been confirm but judging off him teasing fans with snippets on his Instagram, we should all be expecting something soon.
VMG had a moment to sit down and catch up with the Mississippi native to see what’s to come next from the guy.
1) What keeps you motivate when it comes to your music?
“Shoot, honestly I feel like my mom does. Everyday I come home she’s always so happy and energetic. Imagine what I could give her in the future, you know? The type of smile I can really put on her face.”
2) When you think of “Vintage Media Group”, what comes to mind?
“I’m not sure actually. There are so many crappy blogs that have covered me. I actually like the aesthetic you guys have. The layouts. The theme. The questions. Everything seems so cozy haha”
3) Being that you are from Hattiesburg,Mississippi what is the state of Hip-Hop there? How would you titled your style of music?
“Shoutout to Marr, themindofchaud and Yori. Those guys are from the city and have a crazyyyyy unique sound for themselves. Other than them, I don’t really listen to anyone else from here. It all sounds the same.”
4) With your most recent project coming soon, please can you give us some details on how you came up with the overall idea for the project?
“Alright so basically I was really going through shit. I got robbed. My cousin died. I am moving from a house that I have lived in since a kid. Also my love life has been a wreck. Girls think I have other girls giving me attention but in reality I’m actually lonely. I don’t know. College and the fact that I work too also doesn’t help. This was all this year. So many emotions made me just feel like my mind was everywhere. So I decided to make my album title “Manic” idk hahaha”
5) Where can your fans & supporters find you online? Via Twitter, Facebook, etc.?
“Follow on Instagram: @theothernight and Twitter: @theothernightxo”
6) Who are some of your influences?
“The Weeknd, PND, Ye, James Brown, Blondie. Honestly guys, I could go all day. I LITERALLY listen to every thing.”
7) Any Last Remarks?
