By any measure, it has been a wild year for Buddy. The Compton-rapper has ridden a swift wave to the top in 2017, culminating in being signed to Pharrell Williams’ i am OTHER imprint, the Magnolia EP and another recent EP produced entirely by Kaytranada. And that doesn’t even begin to touch on his myriad of side projects, which includes a stint on a public access TV show hosted by Miley Cyrus of all people.
Naturally, we wanted to find out a bit more about Buddy’s various pursuits, so we had him stop by our main office in Berlin. What resulted was a chat that not only confirmed he’s an artist to keep your eye on, but also divulged a few secrets from his past – namely, that he is indeed a trained thespian who got his start in musical theatre. See it all in the video below.
