Following the release of his album Ease My PAiN, we caught a quick interview with artist and rapper Scotty RAiN to find out more about the project and his thoughts on contemporary hip hop. Here’s how it went.

Hey – thanks for the interview, and congrats on the album. How long have you been making music?
I’ve wrote music since I was four and started recording in 2012.
What does the project Ease My PAiN represent for you?
About how I used females, drugs, and money to distract me from my life problems.
Where do you imagine is the best setting for listeners to spend time with this album?
Late at night in your room alone with most lights off.
If people only have time to listen to one track from the collection, which would you recommend – and why?
I wouldn’t point out one specific song for everyone because they are all different and everybody has a different taste in music.
What’s your main aspiration going forwards in 2019 as an artist?
Keep working hard and as I find myself more every day, I write my thoughts.
What are your thoughts on the current hip hop landscape?
It is fading away from originality.
What are the main values you want to represent as a rapper?
Versatile, Original, Open-minded
Is there anything else we should know?
More music will be on the way.
