A week and a half ago I received an email from the lovely Melissa asking if I wanted to take on my first interview, and of course I obliged. It was none other than award-winning, Canadian rapper D-Sisive.
First times for anything are crazy, nerve wracking, and unexpected, but I did everything in my power to make sure I didn’t freak out on camera or blank on my questions. I did the research, the interview watching, the music listening – basically anything that I could, to ensure I was ready for the madness that is going on camera and interviewing someone. “It’s just a conversation.” I had to keep those words in mind when I was preparing. Just a conversation, pretend the camera isn’t there, make eye contact, don’t swear, don’t bite your nails. It’s all going to be okay.
Surprisingly, it did go okay! More than okay, in fact it was the most fun I’ve had talking to someone in a long time. D-Sisive, or Derek Christoff, is a fantastic guy. I wound up having to meet him 4 hours earlier than planned, but everything went smoothly.
This interview is one of the most hilarious things that you will watch this year, I promise. It’s definitely something to look out for this fall on Shaw. D-Sisive will blow your mind with some very unknown facts about Saskatoon, and even some facts about me that I wasn’t even aware of. We had a great conversation, and you will all love it. I promise.
I’m stoked about the launch of EWest Music, and you should be as well. Coming to you on Shaw this fall, and of course, on ewestmusic.com! Keep checking in on us, as we’ll be delivering content frequently leading up to the launch!
Thank you guys!
