Hip Hop artist P Butta comes from Chicago Heights, IL, and has had an insanely busy 2019. With interviews, live shows, and track releases, P Butta was all about synthesizing and growing his artistry in 2019. P Butta has always had that interest in production, which he stimulated further by taking Sound Engineering and Music Production. Here is where P Butta synthesized that authentic and rounded sound within his tracks. The beginning of 2019 saw P Butta's release of his remix from one of his original tracks "Passion". The remix elevates the originality of the track, and brings a refreshing production. Nevertheless, we found both versions to hold the same effectiveness of lyrical outflow. Another notable release from 2019 was P Butta's "Go Crazy". P Butta's really combining the typical early 00's rap vibe with the contemporary production of today, and the product is nothing we expected! We're heavily into the energy and confidence the track is able to emulate to us as listeners. We feel ready to dominate, and as if nothing can touch us when listening to "Go Crazy", which impresses us that the track can give off that sort of stamina and strength.
As we glide along with looking at further releases the past year saw from P Butta, we halt at his appearance on Matthew Magneta's track "Glad You're Back". Here is where we saw an eclectic production combined with the integral rap elements that P Butta can effortlessly bring to the table. "Glad You're Back" definitely maintains that low-key ambiance that P Butta goes for within his tracks, but again, we have to note the eclectic styling of the production of this track, and how it contrasts greatly to what P Butta normally releases for his listeners. All in all, we're feeling good with the sound P Butta produced and recorded over 2019, and we're hoping for that same type of energy this year!

Hey, P Butta! Congratulations on your hectic, but successful 2019 as an artist! Are you hoping that your sound stays consistent within the 2020 year, or are you looking to switch it up in any fashion?
Thank you. I appreciate it. I definitely plan on staying consistent with my current sound but I am starting to experiment and try new things. I enjoy stepping out of my comfort zone every now and then.
"Go Crazy" was one of our favorite tracks that 2019 saw from you. What was the intended goal for creating this track? What kind of message were you hoping listeners received?
Well, I originally recorded this record for the "No Sucka MC's 7" contest by Kato On The Track. The contest caught my attention a while back. I caught the contest towards the end and didn't know if I was going to make the deadline but that didn’t stop me from completing my submission, plus I'm a fan of Kato. The message I was trying to get across was the fact that I can actually rap. I can show off my flow, lyrical capability, vocabulary, and just have fun on the track. If you can appreciate those things, you'll like the track. No doubt!
Considering all of the milestones you've reached during 2019, which accomplishment would you say you're most proud of?
I would have to say it was me being selected to perform at the "SUPr Music Festival" in Orlando, FL. That was huge for me because I shared the stage with some of the greatest artists in the Orlando area. There were over 2,000 people in attendance. Not to mention I had never been to a festival let alone performed at one. So I would have to say that was my biggest accomplishment musically in 2019.
You were always so vividly interested in the music world ever since you were young. Looking back now, how do you feel you've cultivated yourself as an artist from young P Butta to the P Butta we see today?
I came along way man. I feel young Butta was young, dumb and hungry but didn't fully know what it took to eat. I was anxious towards a lot of opportunities that came my way but I lacked knowledge into doing proper research when it came to certain things. My goal and vision was skewed due to immature premonitions that I encountered base on my surroundings. As I got older and smarter, I began to realize what really mattered to me and started to plan for the long term instead of short term goals. Overall, there was a lot of growth that had taken place and will continue to take place.
Let's talk about your performance at the Animal Houze Music Awards. You've felt that this performance really set your artistry and overall path in the music scene. Can you tell our readers more about how this particular performance changed your artistry?
Yes. I'll never forget. It was on May 30, 2015 in Bloomington, IL. Damn, that was a long time ago...lol. At this point in my life, I was getting it how I lived. Shooting and editing my own videos, recording all of my own music, and creating my own artwork covers. You name it and I was doing ALL of it myself. My childhood friend Metane told me about the show and who the CEO of Animal Houze was. Metane told me there was a performance opportunity available if I wanted it. Being that Metane and I are good friends, he put in a good word for me to perform and I just went for it. It was a real upscale and elegant event with a lot of people there so I knew I had to go all out. I poured my heart out on stage and the crowd showed me, undeniable love. At that point, I began working with Animal Houze and later became the Vice President of the company. So it's safe to say this show changed my artistry for the better.
Thanks, P Butta, for talking with us about your music and artistry! Are you thinking that 2020 will be a year for more releases and live shows, or can listeners expect any breaks from P Butta?
No problem. Thank you for reaching out to me. There will definitely be more releases throughout 2020. Starting off with our first show of the year in California and a new release of a P-Mix and video titled "Wings" in Jan 2020. This will be my first time performing in California so I'm really looking forward to it. Aside from that, be on the lookout for more live shows, more videos, and of course music! Can't wait for y'all to see it all.
