On his favorite project:

The MAAP chose his most recent work, All Around The MAAP. “I feel like I just put a lot more into this body of work than I have with any other project… This past year/year and a half, I feel like I’m at that point where I have everything I need to be the ideal artist. The whole project comes together really nice.”

On his genre own genre, Bed-Rock Pop:

“It’s a mix of bed-rock n roll and hip hop. It’s the perfect vibe.”

On the influence of California and Georgia on his sound:

Surprisingly, the MAAP is not a huge fan of West Coast rap. However he admits he gets a lot of inspiration for his lingo and bars from the California rap scene. As for Atlanta, the city’s influence shines in the kinds of beats The MAAP chooses. “Atlanta I would say is where I get my different part. The part where I just go freestyle with it.”

On the inspiration behind 2 The Moon:

The MAAP was back in his favorite state, Arizona, for the first time in years and he was in a really good mood. He was recording in a studio on the 40th floor, high up in the sky. “I felt like I was going to the moon! I felt like I was so high up… they were the first words that came to my head.”

On his upcoming work:

Lots of music videos are coming soon from The MAAP. No release date yet - The MAAP likes to keep his fans on their toes.
