Yxng Sanzu
Yxng Sanzu

Journalist : What is your name and what city do you rep? 

My real name is Anthony. But my artist name is “Yxng Sanzu” I was born in Passaic, New Jersey but I rep Harrison, New Jersey. 

Journalist : Tell us about your latest releases, what inspired you to create them? 

My latest release so far was “Tough $hit”. What inspired me to make “Tough $hit” is that I wanted to try out drill music while at the same time, integrating my own flow into it. I had inspiration from other drill artists such as Fivio Foreign and Pop Smoke when making the song. I also liked the beat pattern in drill music, so I thought I’d give it a try for myself to actually make a drill song so that’s how I made “Tough $hit”. 

Journalist : What is unique about you and your music? 

What is unique about me is that I like to integrate anime references into my music as well as making rhyme schemes that make perfect sense for the song. I tend to stay on flow as well as create my own flow for my music. The difference between me and other rappers is that I don’t go so much for a materialistic type of approach when I make songs. 

Journalist : When did you realize you were going to make music professionally? 

I realized I was going to make music professionally when I was only 17 years old believe it or not. At first, I started off making joke songs and I didn’t really take music seriously by then. I didn’t go to a studio until May 2021 when I recorded “Vibin”. I used to record on my phone and add reverb to my vocals whenever I’d record. But now in this day of age, I started to engineer my own music. I started using a program called “Cakewalk” and I had a mic with a pop filter already and started recording using that as well as using plugins to further enhance my vocals.  

Journalist : What type of music do you listen to? 

I tend to listen to rap for most of the time. I mostly listen to drill music since I really like the beat pattern in it. However, I do also listen to some Japanese music as well, mainly anime openings as I am a really big anime fan. Sometimes I also listen to Korean rap as well since I do like the flow in most of the songs.  

Journalist : What inspires you to write music? 

What inspired me to write music is the people who support me when writing music whether it’s my friends, family, other artists, etc. I also take into account with constructive criticism whenever I write music since it gives me inspiration to ultimately use that criticism to improve my songs. In the end, there’s always room for improvement no matter what anyone does. Not to mention, music is very subjective so not everyone is going to see music the same way others do. In other words, opinions are opinions, and those opinions motivate me to keep on going with my music career.  

Journalist : What do you do when you don’t do music (creative or otherwise) and that you are passionate about? 

Outside of music, I like to go out a lot and spend some time with my friends. I tend to go to NYC a lot and go shopping for recreational things such as clothes and figurines. I also like to post a lot in social media relating to my music and other things as well. I do take photos of scenery as well. I am a very outgoing person outside of music.  

Journalist : What do you wish you were told when you first started making music that you think would help artists just starting out? 

When I first started out making music, I wish I was told that I should go to a professional studio to record or mix it very consistently. I wish I was also told proper feedback about my music. Back when I first started, people would tend to gas me up and give me positive feedback even though the song never really deserved it. I just wish people were honest about their opinion on my music. I also wish that I was told to improve my flow and improve the quality of my songs when I first started. But to all the new artists out there, use the constructive criticism to improve your music, it will help you all in the long run.  

Journalist : Where do we find you music / music projects? 

I have a linktree where I put all of my music platforms into one website. But my platforms are also here as well.
