You see Wednesday on your calendar, and you know what the drill is.. another episode of LIVE! at MFHQ! — This time around, we invited over a good friend of ours whom we met way way back through one of our earliest seasons of Midnight! The LEGEND herself, A. BILLI FREE. Representing the Southwest by way of the Midwest, Billi has discovered and built a unique sound that blends her earliest influences of young adulthood in Chicago with her ever growing endeavors of the border as a veteran within the music space. Naturally, her journey through music has evolved. Supernaturally, her mission within music has superseded it’s foundation and has become driven by community as she has been able to use her experience to help universally exchange hip-hop and culture across the world through her recent years. A career such as this doesn’t happen overnight, so we’ve always been curious to know just how she manages to accomplish so much in what seems like no time at all! Luckily, A. Billi was kind enough to sit and share with us some of the first things she learned as a musician, how she manages to continue to expand her entire portfolio while remaining in control of her work, and what it takes to be so connected with the world as a musician in today’s day and age. It was an honor to be able to have this convo, and we’re even more grateful to have the opportunity to share it with you all. Sit back, enjoy some fresh water, maybe some tea… and listen to some GOOD CONVERSATION with A. BILLI FREE.
